In an interview with Goal, Javier Tebas admitted that a trophy bearing the name of Lionel Messi would be ideal, mainly because he believes that “La Pulga” will be the best player in the history of football.
“We should think about it. I think Messi will be the greatest footballer in history, he can do anything. He has been playing here since he was young, he always gives himself 110% and he never stops. It would be a great idea to have an MVP prize, and it should be called Messi “said Javier Tebas.
The idea of giving this prize the name of the Argentine footballer comes from the current prize awarded by the Spanish newspaper Marca, which awards each season of the awards bearing the name of footballers.
“Every season we have the Pichichi, Zarra and Zamora trophies. Having a trophy awarded to the best player of the season with the name of Messi seems like a fantastic idea, “he added.
The prize will be created and awarded once Messi has retired according to the President of La Liga.
