Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi triumphed at the Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai after scooping the Best Player of the Year accolade.
The La Liga giants, who won a historic treble last season, were named Best Club of the Year while chief Josep Maria Bartomeu was awarded the Best President of the Year accolade.
The Argentina forward, who has endured a spell on the sidelines this season, notched 58 goals as Barca enjoyed a memorable treble-winning campaign last season.
‘It’s very nice to receive these awards, but I always say that the team makes it possible,’ said Messi. ‘It’s been an extraordinary year.’
Barcelona, who were also awarded the Best Media Attraction in Football award in Dubai, won five titles in 2015, the Spanish league title, the Copa del Rey, Champions League, European Super Cup and the World Club Cup.
