Messi Wins Best Player & Best Forward In Spain Award



It comes as no real surprise that the 28-year-old was named the Player of the Season, while he also beat Cristiano Ronaldo to the award for the best forward of the season, despite the Portuguese scoring 48 goals compared to Messi’s 43.

The best goalkeeper award went to Barcelona shot-stopper Claudio Bravo, who only conceded 19 goals in 37 La Liga matches.

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos won the award for the best defender, while his teammate James Rodriguez won the award for the best midfielder.

It's somewhat surprising that both Los Blancos stars were selected over the likes of Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano in defence or Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets in midfield.

Blaugrana boss Luis Enrique was named the Coach of the Season after guiding the Catalan giants to their 23rd La Liga title.

Valencia's Algerian winger Sofiane Feghouli was named best African player in La Liga, while Neymar won the best player from the Americas award.

Neymar's award was another surprising selection, particularly after it was announced that Luis Suarez and Rodriguez had finished as joint runners-up, while the Argentine, Messi, was not mentioned.
