Messi Gets the European Golden Shoe for Scoring Most Goals in a Season



Barcelona FC star from Argentine, Lionel Messi, has been awarded a record third Golden Shoe trophy after finishing with the most league goals in Europe last season.

The Argentina ace netted 46 times in La Liga as the Catalan giants reclaimed their title back from Real Madrid and he was presented with the trophy in Barcelona on Wednesday.

Messi, 26, also won the award following the 2009/10 season, when he scored 34 goals, and again after the 2011/12 campaign when he found the back of the net 50 times.

And a modest Messi said after being presented with the trophy by former Barca and Bulgaria forward Hristo Stoichkov, who was joint-winner in 1990: ‘I dedicate this award to my family, to the people who are there in the toughest times, and my team-mates.

‘I want to thank them because without them I wouldn’t have achieved anything. It’s a prize for the squad.’


Winners since 2006:

  1. 2006-07 Francesco Totti (AS Roma) 26 goals
  2. 2007-08 Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) 31 goals
  3. 2008-09 Diego Forlan (Atletico Madrid) 32 goals
  4. 2009-10 Lionel Messi (Barcelona) 34 goals
  5. 2010-11 Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) 40 goals
  6. 2011-12 Lionel Messi (Barcelona) 50 goals
  7. 2012-13 Lionel Messi (Barcelona) 46 goals

Messi, who is currently sidelined for eight weeks with a hamstring injury, is the only player to win the trophy three times.

Regarding his injury and the possibility of being back in action by 2014, Messi said: ‘I’m better, improving little by little, I’m nearly without any pain and starting to do little things.

‘I haven’t put a return date, if everything goes well this will be the date (first game of next year) to return, but we’ll see how the recovery goes. It will happen when it has to happen.’
