The 2019/20 domestic campaign in Spain is now finally behind us and the players will have a breather before the return of the Champions League. The papers, however, are still busy relaying the updates and a poll from Sport reveals that as well as getting the Pichichi award, Lionel Messi is also the MVP of LaLiga.
Of course, this was just a poll between Sports readers, meaning that the majority of people voting are probably from Catalonia and could be slightly biased when making a decision.
Still, that doesn’t change the fact that 81% of the people think Messi is the MVP of LaLiga ahead of his closes rival in this race, Karim Benzema. The Frenchman has had a brilliant season but Leo is Leo and despite some crucial goals from the Real Madrid striker, the Argentine reigns supreme.
Mundo Deportivo, on the other hand, have published exclusive images of Barcelona players taking a holiday after a rather exhausting campaign. Quique Setién has given them six days of vacation and the papers call it ‘Oxygen for Champions League‘.
They think this break will do the team good and they will return much stronger and ready to face Napoli in August and then, hopefully, everything else that comes afterwards.
