The long wait is finally over and Leo Messi has claimed another crown in 2018; the best player in MARCA’s Top 100 players of 2018.
Readers have voted in their thousands, and the Argentinian was a clear winner, ahead of Ballon d’Or, Luka Modric, and Antoine Griezmann.
In 2018, Messi has won the Golden Boot, is top scorer of the calendar year, won a league and cup double… he is simply the best in world football.
It was a bittersweet year after the eliminations in the Champions League at the hands of Roma and in the World Cup against France.
But individually he has presented another impeccable service sheet for another year, arguing, convincingly, that nobody can sit on his throne.
He threatens to continue dominating with an iron fist in 2019.
