From the perspective of BLV Quang Huy, Virgil van Dijk will beat Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to win the best player of the 2018/19 season.
At 23:00 on August 29 (Hanoi time), the Champions League 2019/20 draw will take place in Monaco. The European Football Confederation (UEFA) also announced a series of individual titles, with the category expected to be the best player in the 2018/19 season, including three candidates Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Virgil van Dijk. – phong thuy phong khach
Van Dijk deserved to win
Under UEFA regulations, the player nominated for the award must wear a European club. Besides the national championship, the criteria for UEFA to evaluate also include the Champions League / Europa League and the national team. UEFA chose the last three names, then honored the winner based on votes from journalists and coaches.
Before the announcement, Ronaldo was the name mentioned on many newspapers. CR7 won the Serie A championship with Juventus, and captured the title of best player of the season. He led Portugal to winning the Nations League, and played quite impressively in the Champions League. In terms of individual and collective titles, CR7 is marginally better than 2 colleagues.
“Ronaldo deserves to be in the top 3 players of the UEFA season. He is not young in age, but he always shows a strong desire for football. CR7’s achievements at Juventus have gone down, but still impressive for an attacking player. If Ronaldo is honored, it is not difficult to understand, ”BLV Quang Huy commented with Zing.vn.
BLV Quang Huy respects Ronaldo, but will choose Van Dijk if he has the right to vote. Last season, the Dutchman’s greatest success was the Champions League with Liverpool. Van Dijk is also the best player in the Premier League 2018/19, but unfortunately, Liverpool lost the championship to Man City. – Phong thuy phong ngu
“Between La Liga, Serie A or the Premier League, winning the Champions League is still the most impressive achievement. Do not forget Van Dijk also played great with the Netherlands and reached the Nations League final. After Fabio Cannavaro, Van Dijk is a defensive player that makes the world admire. Van Dijk won the title is the fairness for his performance, ”explained BLV Quang Huy.
“Strikers or midfielders shine normally, but rare central defenders always leave the mark like Van Dijk. All of last season, no player won against Van Dijk, whether it be Neymar, Ronaldo, Messi or Mbappe. I believe in the fairness of the UEFA award, when last year Luka Modric was a player honored, ”BLV Quang Huy affirmed.
Messi has no chance
Compared to Ronaldo or Van Dijk, Messi makes many fans skeptical when appearing on this list. The Argentine superstar won La Liga, won the European Golden Shoe for the third consecutive season, but disappointed in the Champions League and the Copa America 2019 arena with Argentina. Many people believe that Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane deserve to replace Messi.
“Of the three candidates, Messi has the least chance of winning. Messi played well for most of the season, but faded at the crucial moment. It was a 0-4 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield, and a Copa America semi-final in 2019. For me, Messi’s participation in the final vote list was satisfied, ”said BLV Quang Huy.
“The difference between Messi and Ronaldo and Van Dijk is the collective power. The free-kick against Liverpool is proof that Messi is still a genius, but can not carry the whole team. And when the collective fails, the individual title will turn against M10. Messi returned to the team lost and helpless, far different from Portugal or the Netherlands which supported Ronaldo well with Van Dijk ”, BLV Quang Huy concluded.
The UEFA gala night also has additional awards, including the best female player; Champions League 2018/19 goalkeeper, defender, midfielder and striker.
