On Friday, Andrés Iniesta and Leo Messi received the awards at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper from Robert Ley, vice-president of the International Federation of Football History & Statistics. Iniesta has been announced as the best playmaker in the world and Messi as the top goalscorer in the world’s biggest leagues.

This is the second consecutive time that Iniesta has won the award after he also collected it in 2012, thus succeeding his team-mate Xavi Hernández, who has won it four times. Messi has also won his award for the second time in a row. He takes the IFFHS award for 2013 thanks to his 46 goals in 32 games in 2013.
