Lionel Messi Receives 5th Golden Shoe Award For Europe's Top Scorer by AcuraZDX: 4:43pm On Dec 18, 2018
Lionel Messi, the talented Barcelona forward, was awarded with his fifth Golden Boot on Tuesday afternoon, Marca reports.

The footballer was given the award after being the top goalscorer in Europe last season with 34 goals in LaLiga Santander.

He was handed the trophy by MARCA director Juan Ignacio Gallardo and the Argentine was as humble as ever with his comments.

“I did not expect all of this when I started," said Messi.

"My dream was to be a professional, to be able to succeed in football.

"There was some recognition for his teammates at the Blaugrana as they help him secure these individual accolades.

"I enjoy the work, the effort and, above all, the teammates," he added when asked about what he likes about football.

"I am in the best team in the world, I am next to the best in the world in their positions and that makes everything easier [when it comes to] winning these awards."

The 31-year-old also spoke about the last 16 draw of the Champions League, where Barcelona will play Lyon.

"Lyon was not the strongest name [in the hat], but it will be complicated," said Messi.

"They were equal when they played [Manchester] City; they will be difficult to advance against."It's a long way away, a lot of things can happen between now and February.

"We don't know how they're going to be, how we're going to be, but we know it's going to be a complicated game."

With this being Messi's fifth Golden Boot, he overtakes Cristiano Ronaldo as the Portuguese has four.

Ronaldo should have won it because his goal ratio last season was second to none......Messi edged him with just a mere goal

The year is 2035, FIFA 36 was just released, you purchased it, got home, set up your ps7 or 8 to play with your kid, he picks a team called Classic XI but is confused at the names he's seeing, "Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, e.t.c, then he asks, " dad, who are this people?, you put down your gamepad and tell him, "Son, let me tell you about the greatest history of football...cheesy

They say Ronaldo is a great goal scorer,

But Ronaldo has about 550 goals in about 750 appearances.
Messi has about 535 goals in only about 600 appearances.

Proves that in terms of goal scoring; Messi>>>Ronaldo.


Also Messi is competing with the likes of Modric, Kroos and Iniesta for the world's best playmaker.

Messi has far more assists.
Messi is a better passer.
Messi is a play maker.


Seriously if you think that Ronaldo is anywhere as good as Messi then you are a big idiiot.
Seriously you are!

The number of ballon dor's won has done a great disservice to this debate.

The whole Messi versus Ronaldo thing is a big Scam!!

I am highly disappointed in Lionel Messi. No wonder he is the 5th best. He did not score enough goals with head to deserve that golden boot. Most of them were with his left foot. If he continues like this, we will slide him down to 6th

When I say Lionel Messi is the Greatest footballer of our generation. ..some CR7 fans will come with their emotional sentiments. How can an attacking Midfielder be edging a striker in goals. He creates opportunities, he scores them, he assists, he get the most in the game even in the absence of Xavi and Iniesta... he's still doing it. Messi is greater.
