Messi notched only 41 goals throughout the entire campaign last season - a total of 58 goals and 21 assists for his club and country in 66 appearances - which is quite low for his standards. But he got injured during the first half of last season and was out for two months. Anyway, he guided Argentine to the last match of the World Cup final, despite a lot of not brilliant performances. Furthermore, he became the Spanish La Liga's highest goal-scorer and also broke Raul's record of 71 goals in UEFA Champions League.
Neuer has been an outstanding goalkeeper last year. He was decisive helping his national team winning last summer’s World Cup. The German goalkeeper kept 32 clean sheets in 65 games combined, for both Bayern Munich and Germany national team. But goalkeepers usually don't win this award. He would be the first goalkeeper to win since Lev Yashin of Soviet Union way back in 1963.
Ronaldo won it last year, and these past 12 months have been even better for Ronaldo. He underperformed in the World Cup, but he was playing through a serious knee injury. But the Portuguese won two big trophies with Real Madrid which included the Copa del Rey and more importantly the Champions League. managed to score 51 times across all competitions while in La Liga he scored a total of 31 times. He also became Portugal's leading goal-scorer and won the European player of the year, netting a phenomenal 61 goals in 60 games, along with 22 assists.
