Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has been elected as 2011-12 player of the season in the LFP awards.

The Argentina international was also named best attacker in La Liga, beating Real Madrid duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema to the award.

The prize is based on votes made by fellow players and coaches for the best footballers in the top two divisions in Spain.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas was voted best goalkeeper ahead of Victor Valdes and Roberto Jimenez (Zaragoza), while Sergio Ramos beat Javier Mascherano and Javi Martinez to the title of best defender.

The award of best holding midfielder went to Madrid’s Xabi Alonso, with Sergio Busquets and Benat (Betis) completing the podium, while Andres Iniesta pipped Santi Cazorla and Mesut Oezil to the best attacking midfielder award.

Pep Guardiola was named coach of the season, Malaga’s Isco talent of the year and Carles Puyol received the fair play award.
