Reaction to Messi being the Best FIFA Mens Player: Lionel Messi won the 2023 The Best FIFA Men’s Player award went viral, as fans went crazy on social media. Why? Let’s check out the bigger picture.
Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe were magnificent in 2023, along with English striker Harry Kane. While Cristiano Ronaldo emerged as the top scorer of 2023 with 54 goals, Mbappe (52), Kane (52), and Haaland (50) were right behind him. What makes Haaland more deserving is his incredible run with Manchester City, winning five big titles, including the UEFA Champions League, English Premier League, FA Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and UEFA Super Cup. When it comes to Messi’s achievements, the Argentine has just scored 28 goals in all competitions.
Giving Messi the award over much-deserved Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe has caused outrage worldwide, questioning the relevancy of the award.

Messi’s 2023, 2021, and 2019 Ballon d’Or wins over more deserving candidates give this argument greater validity.
