Liverpool win big at Fifa Football Awards but Van Dijk misses out
Lionel Messi won the Men's player of the year at the FIFA Football awards.
His win came to a surprise to many who saw Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk as the deserved winner of the award for his contribution to Liverpool's defence.
Earlier, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp got the stellar night off to winning start as he picked up Fifa men's coach award earlier tonight.
Klopp guided his team to the Champions League and they finally managed to win a European title with the German having lost in the 2018 final to Real Madrid.
It was then the turn of Alisson Becker who won goalkeeper of the year.
The Brazilian stopper bolstered the Reds defence when he joined from Roma.
Van Dijk and Becker made the Fifpro team.
