The two PSG stars are among the oldest players to have won a first Ligue 1 Uber Eats title - check out our full list of senior Ligue 1 Uber Eats winners!

In their first season in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos won the league title with Paris Saint-Germain - a feat achieved by other capital club stars before them, notably Zlatan Ibrahimovic (2013), Thiago Silva (2013), Angel Di Maria (2016), Neymar (2018), Dani Alves (2018) and Kylian Mbappé (2018).

But neither the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner, who will turn 35 on 24 June, nor the Spanish defender, 14 months older than him (36), have become the oldest new French champion in history -but the two stars are still in the top ten for outfield players.

Before them, David Beckham was part of the first PSG title of the 2010s at 38 years old (2013), making him the most experienced firs-time champion of France in 40 years. All positions combined, the Englishman is at the foot of the podium behind the forty-year-old Italians Buffon and De Sanctis, and another Parisian, Ronan Le Crom.
