Lionel Messi has been crowned the 2022 FIFA Best Player of the Year at the awards ceremony held in Paris, France on Monday, February 27, 2023.

It’s been a tremendous year and it’s an honour for me to be here and win this award. Without my team-mates I wouldn’t be here,” he said at the ceremony.

“I achieved the dream I had been hoping for for so long. Very few people can achieve that and I have been lucky to do so.” His compatriots Emi Martinez and Lionel Scolani won the best goalkeeper and coach respectively.
