He doesn't deserve it because he is just a defender and aside that he has not been that consistent in the last few seasons..

Carnavaro won that in 2006 so it not a new thing. Van Dijk had a perfect season and considering that he is a defender who don't have access to scoring like Messi and Ronaldo, he deserves it more.

Well the guy has done well in a couple of season now, but winning Ballon d'or isn't justified result, I strongly disagree with van winning it.. Best candidate remains Cr7

Van dijk has really done well in the past few years and he deserves it.  I think it's high time these Goats give way to these young upcoming stars. I thank my stars I was born in there era😄, it will actually be so boring if I would be told about them.

I definitely disagree .Ronaldo has more achievements to his name to Van Dijk who only has the champions league glory alone

Based on statistics van dijk deserves it but most people think he's overrated after winning the premier league mvp and his influence in the champions league

 Van Dijk has really done well but I think Cristiano Ronaldo is the one that will receive the award.

Actually,I will be happy if this award is being given to Virgil Van Dik because of his performance last season and also to give way for the upcoming stars in football rather than sharing this award between two special players though they deserve it namely:Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi thereby makingit boring unlike the time of Ronaldinho,Zidane,Beckham etc whereby it's hard for someone to be the world's best for more than two time.Thanks.

Based on the stats of van dijk and Ronaldo, Ronaldo has made things better than van dijk.

No,Leo deserves it after showing his competence in winning his sixt European golden shoe, scoring the best goal in the Champions League, received most man of the match Award, being the highest goal scorer in the tournament and so on.

No, he hasn't. He cannot be compared to the likes of Messi and Ronaldo. These gods of football are exceptional and they're the reasons why their clubs are always on top. They single handedly bring success to their clubs every season. Imagine when Ronaldo left Real Madrid, Madrid collapsed because he's no longer there. They're motivation to other players on the pitch. They bring out the best from their team mates. They're the pillars, the strength of their team and club

No!  Tho he was instrumental in Liverpool's UCL triumph but let's not forget how integral messi was for barca last season. 

Winning the highest goal scorer in the entire europe

Despite the fact that he won the champions league, Messi is still far ahead of him. All players who are aspiring to win the footballer of the year should wait until he retires.

Messi and Ronaldo worked harder and performed better than he did and as such the award should go to either of them, but i will also root for Messi so i will say the award you be given to Messi.

In my most impartial form, I'd say he deserves it ahead of Ronaldo but not Messi since the award is based on individual stats and performance... Compared to Messi's prolific stats this season, he's no where near but can be managed to be put beside Ronaldo

No. He doesn't deserves it.

He doesn't have much experience and he doesn't have much impact in his team than Ronaldo and Messi.

Van djik doesnt deserve it but if fifa should give according to last year ratings it would be given to van djik..because luka modric won the champions league and got to the final of the fifa world cup. Same as van djik, champions league winner and uefa nations league final

Van Dijk is good and won the champions league, but Leonel Messi is better than him by far. But let see what the UEFA league governing body and fifa will decide at the end of it.

For me Van Dijk deserve it ahead of Ronaldo and messi because for the past 20 years no defender has played like he, the only deffender that played a whole season without a card think about it " he is out standing"

Virgil van dijk is a very talented player and i think he should win the uefa men player of the year. I mean, how many times do we get to see players who can avoid getting dribbled past for a whole season. He truly deserves it.

Do You Think Van Dijk Deserved This Year UEFA Men's Player Award Ahead Of Ronaldo and Messi? - By Amisu Abdullahi - 2019-09-10 01:40:32

Yeah I think he really deserved the award, he has been doing well in the past seasons after klopp joined the team, he was nominated as one of the defender of the year if not the best defender am not really sure, his club won the champions league and they were second in the england premier league which he scored more than 3 goals in both competition, he's just a defender....We have seen cr7 and messi fight for the spot for some long time now, I think it's high time we try to appreciate other players efforts too.

No, van dijk is not the right man for the award, without sentimental that he's defender and also he won the UCL for his club didn't mean that he deserve to won the award.

Moreover, Ronaldo and Messi were nominate with him, let wait and see the player to win the award, as for me Van dijk is not the right player to won the award because he's a defender and the award is Base on Goals, dribble and performance throughout the previous season. 

But as for me Messi deserve to won the award.

Am sure some will say he doesn’t deserve it because he is a defender that rubbish ..i know it rare for a defender to win d ballon d’Or NB: Fabio cannavaro was the last defender to do so in 2006 after he won the World Cup with Italy .vandik has something to show that he really deserve it

Never, Van Dijk doesn't deserve to be given the award at all, tho he really work hard and he really deserve to be awarded but  not with UEFA Men's player award because the award belongs to a sriker and Van Dijk is a defender.

So i don't think he deserve the award.

Van dijk did well quit all right but to me does not deserve the UEFA player of the year.. Well I see it as a strategy since Messi and Ronaldo had recieved  the  same award the same number of time... also seeing that age is not on there side they decided to give neither of them to prevent fans clashing

Van Dijk really tried this year but comparing him to Ronaldo and Messi is overpowering. I wanted Ronaldo to win it though but its high time Ronaldo and Messi let other players win they have been switching this award back to back for some years now, i dont see any wrong in Uefa giving the award to the liverpool star.

He doesn't deserve it because all his achievements last season were also done by Sergio Ramos and yet he didn't win the award. Nevertheless, Messi is the winner of that award both by performance and stats. Even In the same competition, Messi won the most man of the match in the champions league last season.
