Who deserves UEFA Best Player prize?

Lionel Messi, Franck Ribéry and Cristiano Ronaldo occupy the shortlist for the 2012/13 UEFA Best Player in Europe Award but who is your choice for the prize?

Lionel Messi, Franck Ribéry and Cristiano Ronaldo are the three names on the shortlist for the 2012/13 UEFA Best Player in Europe Award but who would your choice be to take the prize in the live vote in Monaco on 29 August?

Messi added to his long list of landmarks in 2012/13 by hitting 46 league goals to propel FC Barcelona to the Spanish Liga title. Ribéry helped FC Bayern München land a historic treble of Bundesliga title, German Cup and UEFA Champions League. Ronaldo, meanwhile, finished as leading scorer in the UEFA Champions League for the second time with his 12 goals for Real Madrid CF. But who do you think should claim an accolade won last year by Barcelona's Andrés Iniesta?

Journalists from each of UEFA's member associations may have given us that top three but would you have put other players higher up the list? Arjen Robben, Bayern's Wembley final match winner, and Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, author of four goals against Madrid in a single UEFA Champions League semi-final match, ranked fourth and fifth – would you have placed them higher?
