Virgil Van Dijk is favourite to land yet another award on Monday night as he goes up against Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo at The Best FIFA Football Awards
The Liverpool defender pipped Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to the UEFA player of the year award last month and could do so again when FIFA announces its 2019 winners in Milan on Monday night.
Champions League winner Van Dijk was nominated on a three-man shortlist earlier this month alongside Messi and Ronaldo for The Best FIFA Men’s Player Award.
Some of the Premier League’s biggest names dominate other categories, with Liverpool’s Alisson Becker and Manchester City’s Ederson shortlisted for the goalkeeper accolade, along with Barcelona’s Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.
Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino make up the three-man shortlist for The Best FIFA Men’s Coach Award.
