Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez Shortlisted For UEFA’s Best Player Award

Suarez’s Barca teammate Messi won the inaugural UEFA Best Player in Europe award in 2011 while Real Madrid’s Ronaldo is the current holder.

Messi is the big favourite as Barcelona won the treble of Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey last season, while he helped Argentina reach the Copa America final.

Behind the top three, Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was fourth, Barca’s Brazil forward Neymar fifth and Eden Hazard of Chelsea sixth.

The award will be handed out in Monaco on August 27 during the draw for the group stages of the Champions League.
