Nobody is talking about anything else! Lionel Messi surprised everyone and won the FIFA The Best award for the best player of 2023. The 3 nominees were Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland, with the Norwegian striker from Manchester City being the main favorite, or so it was thought!

Manchester City dominates at the FIFA The Best award ceremony

Now, social networks have been infested with comments of all kinds after Lionel Messi's award, some positive, and others not so much. In fact, at the same ceremony there were reactions of surprise, and the most viral of all was that of Pep Guardiola, who saw how his Erling Haaland was once again left without an award at the hands of Lionel Messi.

Josep Guardiola was also one of the main protagonists of the ceremony, as he won the award for best coach of 2023, after winning the treble with Manchester City (the UEFA Champions League, the Premier League and the FA Cup). After winning, this is what he said about his beloved Barcelona: "FC Barcelona is the club of my heart. FC Barcelona is the reason I am here, FC Barcelona is part of my life."
