Barcelona maestro Lionel Messi has added to his list of accomplishments by winning the Onze d’Or, an award given to the best European player as deemed by French magazine Onze Mondial.

The attacking sensation enjoyed a spectacular 2008/09 season, banging in a stunning 38 goals in 51 appearances, to guide Catalan giants Barcelona, to a historic treble. He is the first Argentinean to win the award since Diego Maradona in 1987.

This is surely only the tip of the iceberg for the mercurial youngster, who many see as this year’s clear favourite to receive all the major individual accolades football has to offer. After playing second fiddle to the likes of Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo in the past two years, Lionel Messi, at only 22-years of age, is all set to be regarded as the world’s greatest footballer.
