He returned to the venue later that night to collect his prize as the outstanding footballer of 2015 for his feats with Barcelona in which the Catalan club won five trophies, including the treble of Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey. 

Barca themselves were named Club of the Year while Josep Maria Bartomeu was President of the Year.

Other winners at the ceremony included Belgium’s Marc Wilmots who was named Coach of the Year, Benfica earned the accolade of Academy of the Year and Saudi defender Yasser Al-Shahrani was GCC Player of the Year.
