Barcelona Talisman Lionel Messi was crowned FIFA Player of the Year on Monday night.

The Argentine international beat Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk and Juventus's Cristiano Ronaldo for the prize.

Messi won the award for the sixth time in his illustrious career after raising the trophy in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.

The Nou Camp talisman helped Barcelona win the league and guided the Spanish giants to the Champions League semifinals.

The awards are based on performances from July 16, 2018 to July 19, 2019 and were voted by supporters, national coaches of FIFA Member Associations, captains of their teams and also by a select group of football journalists from these countries.

But who did Messi, Van Dijk and Ronaldo vote before Monday night's performance?

The first vote of Barcelona star Messi went to Liverpool's Sadio Mane.

The star of the Reds was key, as Jurgen Klopp's men won the Champions League for the last time.

Messi's second vote went to his arch-rival Ronaldo, while his new Barcelona team-mate Frenkie De Jong got his third vote.

Van Dijk of Livepool voted for Messi, Mohamed Salah and Mane.

Many felt that Salah and Mane should have been shortlisted, with former Premier League star Samuel Eto expressing his frustration before the performance.

When asked who the Male Player of the Year should be, he said, "Salah or Mane … but they are not here!"
