Barca’s Messi wins record 6th European Golden Shoe

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi picked up a record-extending sixth — and third consecutive — European Golden Shoe award yesterday following his outstanding individual 2018-19 domestic campaign.

The award is presented to the top goalscorer in league football across Europe, with the Argentine finding the net 36 times last season as Barca retained its La Liga title. Messi was three ahead of nearest rival Kylian Mbappe, who scored 33 times for Paris Saint-Germain as it won France’s Ligue 1. “My team and my teammates, I would have never been able to win even one of these awards without them,” Messi said at the presentation in Barcelona. “This is a recognition for everyone, all the team.” The forward , who won his first Golden Shoe in 2010, now has two more Golden Shoes than his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus. Teammate Luis Suarez is one of nine players on two. The award was created in 1967 when it was won by Eusebio.
