UEFA announced its Men's and Women's, UEFA Player of the Year for 2023 at the 2023/24 Champions League group-stage draw ceremony.

Lionel Messi was once again in the running for the men's prize and aiming to pull level with long-time rival Cristiano Ronaldo by clinching the award for the third time, after inspiring Argentina to World Cup glory and collecting another Ligue 1 title with Paris Saint-Germain before moving on to Inter Miami.

Erling Haaland, who won the UEFA Player of the Year award on Thursday, has joined the list of elite footballers who have reached this feat in previous years.

The Manchester City striker was voted ahead of Kevin de Bruyne and Lionel Messi.

Haaland helped his Manchester City side achieve a treble victory, scoring 52 goals in 53 games.

Alexia Putellas' two-year reign as the women's winner came to an end, but a fellow Spanish World Cup winner succeeded her. Aitana Bonmati took the award, which quickly followed her Golden Ball prize at the World Cup earlier this month, where she struck three goals and assisted two more. 

Bonmati excelled with the all-conquering Barcelona side last season before starring alongside Olga Carmona, the World Cup final match-winner, who was also nominated for UEFA's award. Australia and Chelsea star Sam Kerr rounded out the contenders.
