There are many who feel Cristiano Ronaldo or Virgil van Dijk or Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mané or Harry Kane should have won the Best FIFA Men’s Player Award.

But the winner turned out to be Lionel Messi. While there are millions who feel the award was given to the right choice there is still a bit of doubt about the transparency.

So FIFPro has officially released the ballots of Captains and Coaches of national teams and Media from every country that participated in deciding the winner.

First, let us take a look at the top 10 players according to their rank points.

From the above picture, we can see that Messi had 46% of the vote followed by Van Dijk at 38 percent and Ronaldo at 36 percent.
