UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2011 - 2012 GROUPS DRAW | LIONEL MESSI AWARDED UEFA BEST PLAYER IN EUROPE

The Top European Football Clubs - along with the four Top Spanish Football Clubs - have been drawn in Groups for the upcoming UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE season 2011 - 2012 competition. The most notable observation is Group A where VILLAREAL has been drawn in a "killer" group which beforehand is the most difficult of all the Spanish teams. REAL MADRID is in Group D & repeats with Lyon & Ajax, while VALENCIA CF  in Group E has Chelsea FC & will meet up with ex player just transferred to the English Club Juan Mata,  & FC BARCELONA is in Group H & should be relatively happy with the draw.

Straight  after the European Club Groups draw for Champions the voting by 53 European journalists (Live) was celebrated with three candidates up for the inaugural "UEFA Best Player in Europe Award 2010 - 2011". The journalists had to give their winners vote to either Xavi Hernandez (FC Barcelona), Lionel Messi (Fc Barcelona) & Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) with the final outcome not surprising anyone as it was given to LIONEL MESSI.

This new personal Award makes the Barça & Argentine International "hot favourite" candidate to given next January the "FIFA World Player - Golden Ball" which would be his 3rd if actually awarded. There is ( & cannot be ) any doubt that Messi deserved totally to win the UEFA Best Player in Europe Award tonight, congratulations!
