Juventus and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo, who has won the award five times, was third in the voting.

NO qualms with Messi winning, he had an exceptional season in terms of goalscoring and assists. Once again he carried Barcelona to La Liga and any time he was missing from the team it became evident just how much Barcelona rely on him.

Virgil van Dijk had an exceptional season too and there was a strong case for him winning too.

Surprised Salah was so high up on the list, he scored goals but didn't do a whole lot more. Didn't expect Riyad Mahrez or Bernado Silva to be in the top 10 either.

Sane is a better player than Salah. Any time I watch Liverpool I always feel that MO Salah is too greedy and will take on near impossible attempts when a pass to a teammate could well yield a goal.

What Messi and Ronaldo have done for years in terms of goals is absolutely ridiculous. It’s almost become normal and as a result, they perhaps don’t get the credit they deserve.

Messi managed 36 goals in 34 La Liga games and 12 in 10 in the champions league last season. He also had the most assists in La Liga. The lads a genius.

If I had to choose between the Messi and van Dijk in 2019, I'd probably put Messi ahead. But if you go by the 2018/19 season, van Dijk was definitely the better one in my opinion
