\"It\'s amazing. It was a tremendous year and it is an honor for me to be here tonight and win this award,\" said Messi, who sat next to Kylian Mbappe throughout the ceremony at the Salle Pleyel.
Monday\'s award was Messi\'s second FIFA The Best title, his first coming in 2019. He has also won a record seven Ballon d\'Or awards.
\"I want to express my thanks to [coach Lionel] Scaloni and my teammates; without them I would not be here,\" Messi added.
