Messi crowned top Euro star...

LIONEL MESSI has been crowned European Footballer of the Year — by the biggest margin EVER! The Barcelona star was pipped to the Ballon d'Or by Cristiano Ronaldo last season. But after Champions League glory as well as a Spanish league and cup Double, he was the runaway winner this year. Messi polled 473 votes — more than twice as many as Real Madrid's Ronaldo, who had 233. Argentina ace Messi said: "There's lots of emotion - the Ballon d'Or is very important for me. "I know I appeared among the favourites because Barcelona had a profitable year. "For me it's a big honour to win - but also to become the first Argentinian in history to receive the trophy. "I dedicate it to my family, they were always present when I needed them and sometimes felt even stronger emotions than me." Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney and Chelsea forward Didier Drogba were eighth and ninth. Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard completed the top 10.
