Lionel Messi has been named Man of the Match more often than everyone else in a season on 11 occasions since 2009 alone.

It really serves no purpose for me to attempt to describe how amazing Messi is at football; either you already know because you watch football, or you refuse to believe that he is anything other than an Eibarman.

There just cannot be enough space in the PSG forward’s home for all of the awards that he has earned over his career.

This is due to the fact that no one has received more Man of the Match accolades than him in at least eight seasons during the last 13 years.

According to MotM awards earned, The Pop Foot has compiled a list of the 20 best seasons for players. Cristiano Ronaldo is the second best on the list with four appearances. on the list, 11 times out of 20.

It’s amazing that he earned 34 accolades in just 40 games during the 2014–15 season, which explains why Barcelona won the Treble by winning La Liga, the Champions League, and the Copa del Rey.

Following that, Messi occupies the following seven slots on the list, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s 2014–15 season ending Messi’s streak.

Ronaldo managed to score 48 league goals for Real Madrid despite not winning any awards that year, while his adversary ate them all up.

And it appears that Ronaldo’s desire to leave Manchester United this summer is motivated by their rivalry since he wants to keep his Champions League record safe from Messi.

It’s hardly surprising that Messi’s lone season at Paris Saint-Germain didn’t make the list, even if all of his seasons with Barcelona are included.

Despite the fact that he won the league championship with them, the seven-time Ballon d’Or had a very difficult time scoring in Ligue 1 as he only managed six goals, with his lone season at Barca including fewer.

The 35-year-life, old’s though, may have been drastically different if Cesc Fabregas and he had both ended up at Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger sought to sign Messi and Gerard Pique when he was able to get Fabregas to north London, according to the most recent edition of “Who Arsene Wenger could have signed?”
