Barcelona captain Lionel Messi named All Football Player of the Week Featured


Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has been named All Football Player of the Week.

Lionel Messi highlights our All Football Team of the Week in which he casts the most votes to be named All Football Player of the Week, beating Luka Modric, Ben Yedder, Bernardo Silva & Co.

The Argentina superstar certainly started the new season with a bang! He scored 4 goals in this week including a record-breaking hat-trick in Barca's 4-0 win over PSV, his 8th hat-trick in Champions League, which helped him move ahead of Ronaldo's total.

Another Champions League campaign, another peerless display from Messi. The 31-year-old began the feast by curling home a majestic free kick, the first goal of the entire group stage, before two more decent finishes from Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez's assists.

In the weekend, Lionel Messi set another record for gaining the most Spanish league appearances by a non-Spanish player as he overtook former teammate Dani Alves with his 423rd La Liga game in Barcelona's 2-2 draw with Girona.
Despite the first FIFA The Best snub in 12 years, Lionel Messi can undoubtedly be named our All Football Player of the Week.
