Messi's chances to win FIFA Best Player award analyzed in 6 thoughts
Leo is not the favourite this year as well.
- Barca's key player will face competition from his main opponent, Virgil van Dijk, who's the present Champions League winner.
- As the poll is decided not just by the fans but by some players as well, the Dutchman will have a more preferable profile after winning PFA Players' Player of the Year award.
- Today's Liverpool could be described as a neutral team in the entire football world, which means that lots of coaches and team captains would gladly choose Virgil's candidature.
- There are many fans and journalists all over the world thinking that it's time for FIFA to make either goalkeeper or a defender a new winner; however, no goalkeepers are nominated this time.
