Barcelona’s Five-time ballon’Dor winner (World’s best footballer of the year title) Lionel Messi was named the best player of the month for September in La Liga (Spain’s top Flight football league).
The Argentine had a stellar month, scoring three and assisting four goals last month and will receive the award at Camp Nou, Barcelona’s home stadium.
“Leo Messi, the FC Barcelona forward, has been named the La Liga Santander Player of the Month for September,” La Liga said via their website.
“The Argentine scoops the first prize of the 2018/2019 season after an impressive start to the campaign which saw his side go to the top of the standings,” the statement added.
However, Messi’s top form has not fostered Barcelona the desired start to their La Liga campaign, losing several points with draws and losses to match arch-rivals Real Madrid’s run, who have co-incidentally suffered the similar faith.
The Catalan club will take on table toppers, Sevilla on Saturday as the current champions aim to retain the spot of Spain’s top-flight football league.
