Lionel Messi named FIFA’s Best Player for the third time in 2023

FIFA awarded Lionel Messi the title of Best Men’s Player for 2023, marking his third prestigious win in this category. The ceremony, held in London on Monday, spotlighted Messi’s exceptional contributions to football.

Notably, Messi surpassed competitors, including Erling Haaland, contributing to the celebratory atmosphere for Manchester City. It is important to mention that Messi’s performance for the award was evaluated from December 2022, when he led Argentina to World Cup victory, to August 2023.

Although Messi’s tenure at Paris Saint-Germain concluded on a relatively subdued note, despite securing the Ligue 1 title, he made a significant move to the MLS side Inter Miami in June.

In the United States, Messi promptly made an impact, assisting Inter Miami, co-owned by David Beckham, in securing their first trophy by winning the Leagues Cup in August. This recognition underscores Messi’s enduring influence and success on the football stage.
