From this Monday, Leo Messi forms part of the historical list of stars that conquered the Prize Laureus, after being topped in the gala in the Verti Music Hall of Berlin like the Best Sportsman of the Year -a recognition shared with the pilot of Formula 1 Lewis Hamilton-. The one of Rosario, first footballer that conquers this award, has lived a 2019 of dream, although his ambition carries him to wish much more.

Although the Argentinian has not rid of the criticisms, the true is that it has sealed a season to frame. The cries of his detractores hear a lot because it suits that there is an opposition to his command, but after having pointed 51 goals and 22 assistances in 50 commitments in all the competitions, little more it is necessary to say of a captain that has led without discussion to the FC Barcelona.

LaLiga Was the competition in which the '10' planted his flag, and where cimentó the Pichichi and a Boot of Gold in which it wrote his name by sixth time, something that never anybody has attained in the history. Although Kylian Mbappé planted face until the last day, his 36 targets and 15 assistances imposed so much in Spain as in Europe, where anybody had so much influence on the rest of competitors.

His effort collaborated also in the Supercopa of Spain, and in a 'semis' of Champions and a final of the Glass of Rey. The canterano put everything of his part to clear to the today all-powerful Liverpool of Jürgen Klopp, but the ghosts of Rome appeared in Anfield and tumbaron to the culés, that did not raise to time to surpass to Valencia in the tournament of the 'ko'. His performance, this yes, is out of all doubt.

The debt to international level caused that it remained second in the best player of the UEFA -was for Virgil go Dijk-, but after triumphing in the FIFA The Best, repeated with the Balloon of Gold. Already it has 32 years and the differences with the rest of applicants are tightening , but enjoyed it more than ever when can share it with his children and gives the feeling that it remains him petrol for more. The recognition was more than deserved.

Messi wants to go back to win with the Barça

Although to these heights has little that show, Messi has something that regret, and is that it wants to win more with the Barça. If something has listened him lately is that it expects a sportive project that was to the height of his ambition, with an aim above the rest. The crack has win to go back to reign in Champions, but neither wishes to neglect LaLiga and the Glass of Rey. It wants to it all, and the club has to step forward to be able to accompany him.
