As the very first footballer, Lionel Messi won the Laureus award! It is a joint venture actually. This time two athletes have been given the award. Along with Lionel Messi, the Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton has been declared as the “Best Sportsman of the Year”.
The moral of the story is, Lionel Messi won the Laureus award! Earlier today, in Berlin, through a colorful ceremony, the winner’s name has been announced. The award started their journey twenty years ago. In the history of 20 years, as the first time, two players have won the prestigious award jointly. Earlier, the Argentine forward Messi got a total of five nominations for the award a total of five times but at the end, could not win it.
In the last December, for the last time and record time, Messi won his 6th Ballon d’Or. Besides, in the last season, the Barcelona captain won the Pichichi Trophy for the highest goal scorer of the season. At the same time, he also won the European Golden Shoe for becoming the highest scorer in the top five leagues in Europe.
The new season is not going well for the Barcelona skipper Lionel Messi. Not bad but not as expected from his fans or teammates. In his last four matches, Messi has not found the net. So, it seems that after a long time, Messi is suffering from the goals drought! Still, Messi is the highest scorer in La Liga but still, he has much to give.
Due to his goals drought, Barcelona is paying. Though Messi has kept continuing his amazing assists. In the ongoing season, he already made a total of twelve assists so far. However, Barcelona has lost the top position in La Liga. But still, one point behind than the top-ranked team Real Madrid. Besides, they have already missed the Spanish Super Cup and Copa del Rey. Just two more titles are ahead. So, they are now focusing on the La Liga and Champions League.
