To no great surprise Lionel Messi was named UEFA’s best player in Europe for a second time following a dazzling campaign with Barcelona last season.

The diminutive Argentina international, recipient of the inaugural prize in 2011, finished ahead of Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Barca team-mate Luis Suarez.

Messi won following a live poll of 54 journalists from Uefa’s member nations.

The 28-year old hit 58 goals in all competitions as he helped the Catalan club to a treble-winning season.
