Leo Messi has been the best player of 2019, and no only say it we, the The Best and the Balloon of Gold. Also it says it the newspaper MARKS, that delivered to the Argentinian star his last Boot of Gold and that, after the votes effected by his users, has determined to the '10' as the best footballer of the year to international level, independently of the titles that have won or left to win with the Barça and Argentina.

The rosarino is the footballer that has carried more votes in the list in which they appear the 100 better of the year. Messi repeats a year more in the highest of the classification, and accompany him in the podium Karim Benzema and Go Dijk, voted like second and third better player of the 2019.

Although the past campaign had a flavour agridulce for 'The Flea', when winning LaLiga with the Barça but fall with bang in Anfield and in the final of Glass of the King in front of Liverpool and Valencia, Leo Messi has gone back to show along the year 2019, in all the competitions, that is a stair above the other. Although it is true that suffered an injury that carried him to lose until eight parties of League, at present already leads the classification of the 'Pichichi', was Boot of Gold of the previous course and went back to leave performances for the memory.

It recovered the Balloon of Gold after three years moved away of the prize, and attracted the looks and praises of the international panorama with his goals, assistances and wonders on the terrains of game. The second square in the classification is for Karim Benzema, that has completed his best year to individual level with the Real Madrid and has turned into the big leader of the team of midfield to forward.

It closes the podium Virgil go Dijk, that stood out in the Liverpool so much in Champions League as in the Premier, and also with the selection of Holland in the UEFA Nations League. Considered by many like the best defence of the actuality, Go Dijk was several months without that anybody went able to dribble him, remained second in the FIFA The Best and in the list of the Balloon of Gold, just by behind Messi.

But the reality is that, by a lot of that happen the years, anybody is able to equalise the magic of the Argentinian. To his 32 years, the rosarino keeps intact the ambition to conquer titles and, in particular, the Champions League with the Barça -once again- and the World-wide with the selection of Argentina, something for what already remains him so only an opportunity, the one of Qatar 2022. It win it or no, the majority will follow him considering the best footballer of the history.
