Football: Barcelona Star, Lionel Messi Wins Best Footballer Of The Year 2017 Award

Lionel Messi finally gets one over Real Madrid Star, Christiano Ronaldo as the Barcelona Star edges him and won the best player of the year 2017 award.

He returned to the top after finishing second to Cristiano Ronaldo last year he reclaims first place in the Guardian’s top 100 male footballers list for 2017.

It was our biggest survey yet, with 169 judges from 63 different countries voting, and the margin between the top two was minimal. Messi finished only 42 points ahead of Ronaldo (6,582 to 6,540) and yet again the pair were miles ahead of the rest.

Neymar, who finished third, had a final score of 5,934 and the gap to fourth-placed Kevin De Bruyne (4,586) was even bigger.

Messi and Ronaldo have, between them, won all six years of the Guardian’s top 100 footballers and while some may find that tedious I find the battle between the two fascinating.

Messi has won the award four times (2012, 2013, 2015 and 2017) with Ronaldo claiming it twice (2014 and 2016). On each occasion the other player has finished second. No one has been near them for six years.
