“Hello. Good evening. The truth is, happy, obviously. It’s always beautiful receiving this recognition. Even though the importance is in the team as a whole, this is also beautiful to receive an individual prize, and so I am happy, appreciative, and content to be here.”

“The truth is, it’s difficult to come up with just one (key moment from the last year). It was a very full year for us. We won practically everything we played. It was an extraordinary year. The truth is, to come up with just one moment is complicated. I am left thinking about the year as a whole for Barcelona.”

STORY: Barcelona forward Lionel Messi was named the best player of the year at the Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai on Sunday (December 27). The 28-year-old Argentine international, who is a four-times world player of the year and has been shortlisted for the 2015 Ballon d’Or, helped to inspire his team to the Champions League, La Liga and King’s Cup treble despite losing two months to injury.

“It’s always beautiful receiving this recognition. Even though the importance is in the team as a whole, this is also beautiful to receive an individual prize, and so I am happy, appreciative, and content to be here,” said Messi after receiving his award.

When asked if he could pick out one moment from his year, Messi responded that it was “difficult”.

“The truth is, it’s difficult to come up with just one. It was a very full year for us,” he said. “We won practically everything we played. It was an extraordinary year. The truth is, to come up with just one moment is complicated. I am left thinking about the year as a whole for Barcelona.”
