Messi wins La Liga Player of the Month for the first time

Barcelona star Lionel Messi has been named La Liga’s Player of the Month for the first time in the two-and-a-half-season history of the award. Messi – crowned the best player in the world for the fifth time at the Ballon d’Or ceremony in January – has ended his wait for the individual La Liga award following an impressive month.

Despite suffering a hamstring problem midway through January, the Argentina star scored six goals in as many matches to help keep Barca top of the league. The 28-year-old follows Neymar in winning the award – the Brazilian was recognised for the first time in November – with the pair the only Barca players to claim the prize since its conception prior to the 2013-14 season.
