MESSI BEATS RONALDO FOR THE SECOND TIME !!
Lionel Messi has won the Uefa Best Player in Europe Award for the 2nd time after beating Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo to the prize.
He was awarded the trophy after the group stage draw for this year's Champions League and thanked his team-mates in the aftermath of the event.
"It was an incredible year for us," he said.
"I don't know if there's a secret, the dressing room was united and that made for an unforgettable year".
"Thanks to my team-mates, we are all represented. I wouldn't be here if not for them and the club."
Messi finished level on goals with Ronaldo and team-mate Neymar in Europe in 2014-15 - as all three men found the back of the net 10 times.
Messi first won the Uefa Best Player in Europe Award back in 2011 on the back of helping the Catalans win yet another European crown.
