Lionel Messi Wins Fifth Ballon d'Or


2015 was quite the year for Lionel Messi and it’s unsurprisingly been topped off by yet another Ballon d’Or victory for the Barcelona forward.

Messi, along with fellow Ballon d’Or podium teammate Neymar, helped Barcelona to win five trophies in 2015. As well as the La Liga, Copa del Rey, Champions League treble from the 2014/15 season they’ve also won the European Super Cup and World Club Cup since August.

Messi finished the year with 48 goals at 0.86 a game and 24 assists. Winning the trophy for the fifth time extends his lead of Cristiano Ronaldo who has picked up the award three times including the previous two occasions.
