London, Dec. 30 (ANI): Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas has heaped praise on Argentine and Barcelona football star Lionel Messi after he was named World Player of the Year.
"I'd like to congratulate my friend Lionel Messi for being named FIFA World Player of the Year. I believe he's the only player in history to have won every trophy he's been involved in during a season - the two most important individual honours and six competitions out of six for Barcelona," The Sun quoted Fabregas, as saying.
"He scored in four different finals for them, most recently the World Club Championships winner against Estudiantes, so it's been a perfect year for him," he added. (ANI)
