Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has been named La Liga's best player six years out of seven since the awards' creation.

The LaLiga Awards, previously known as the LFP Awards, are presented annually by the Liga de Fútbol Profesional (LFP) to the best players and coach in La Liga, the first division of association football in Spain. Established in the 2008–09 season, they are the first official awards in the history of the Spanish competition.[1] La Liga's best coach and player in each position—goalkeeper, defender, midfielder, and forward—are chosen based on a voting by the captain and vice-captains of each club, while the best player overall is determined via statistical analysis.[2]

Since the LaLiga Awards' creation, Barcelona players have won 31 honours in the six main categories, almost triple the number won by any other club. Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has been named La Liga's best player six years out of seven. Across all positions, the other outstanding individuals are Barcelona midfielder Andrés Iniesta with five wins, Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola with four wins, Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos with four wins, and goalkeepers Iker Casillas of Real Madrid and Víctor Valdés of Barcelona with two wins each.
