The 34-year-old was crowned as the winner at the award ceremony held on 17th January 2022 in Zurich, Switzerland.
Messi, who has been one of the most outstanding footballers of the modern era, enjoyed a fantastic season with Barcelona, leading the team to the Copa del Rey title and finishing as La Liga’s top scorer with 30 goals.
