Lionel Messi has proved that he is the ultimate team player after being named as the world's best playmaker of the last decade.

Every year, the IFFHS gives out an award for the best playmaker using statistics to determine a winner on a points system.



This system - which gives 20 points to first place, 19 points to second and so on and so forth - has accumulated each player's yearly total between 2011 and 2020 to help crown the best 20 playmakers, with Messi winning by a clear margin.



The six-time Ballon d'Or winner, who picked up the best playmaker award in 2015, 2017 and 2019, managed to accrue an impressive 174 points during the nine-year period, with ex-Barca team-mate Andres Iniesta the closest player to him on 127 points.



Luka Modric, who became the only player to break Messi's and Cristiano Ronaldo's stranglehold of the Ballon d'Or trophy in 2018, claimed the final podium place with 113 points.

Toni Kroos completed the top five while his Real Madrid team-mate, Eden Hazard, claimed sixth position, having enjoyed his best years with Chelsea.

Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil finished in an impressive eighth place ahead of the likes of David Silva and Christian Eriksen, who he has been in direct competition as a playmaker during the last decade.
