PARIS (Reuters) - Lionel Messi claimed a record sixth men’s Ballon d’Or award on Monday, beating Liverpool’s four leading nominees to claim soccer’s most prestigious individual trophy.

“Ten years ago I received my first Ballon d’Or, guided by my three brothers,” Messi told the audience.



Alisson, one of the four Liverpool players in the top seven for the men’s Ballon d’Or, was awarded the new Yashin trophy for the best male goalkeeper of the year.



Megan Rapinoe earlier won the women’s Ballon d’Or after leading the United States to a record-extending fourth World Cup title in France this year as they retained the trophy.



“It was amazing,” said Van Dijk.

There was, however, no trophy for the best female Under-21 player or keeper.

He beat Virgil van Dijk, the runner-up, and third-placed Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal, who has won the award five times.
