Messi presented with sixth Golden Shoe by young sons”

Messi earned the award, which is given to the player who scores the most league goals across Europe's top divisions, by finding the net 36 times in 34 LaLiga appearances in 2018-19.

Another successful La Liga campaign helped football legend Lionel Messi get the coveted golden shoe award for the record sixth time on Wednesday. The Paris Saint-Germain striker scored 33 Ligue 1 goals last season.

Messi's sons Thiago and Mateo, presented their father with the trophy supervised by his wife, Antonella Rocuzzo and watched by team-mates, including Luis Suarez and Jordi Alba.

"I want to thank my family, the board and my teammates", Messi said. "This is a recognition for everyone, all the team".

"Although we discuss the Champions League a lot, we never forget the league or cup at Barcelona", Messi admitted.

Speaking to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf the Juventus forward said, "The competition for the Golden Shoe also comes from other leagues". It is very hard if you don't perform well in the Liga to compete in the Champions League.

"At Barcelona, we always aim to win everything".

Earlier this year Messi won The Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year award for the first time although with the year Virgil van Dijk has had he is far from guaranteed to go back ahead in terms of Ballon d'Ors won. They have won their last three matches to pull themselves into second place on 16 points, two behind leaders Real Madrid.

The 32-year-old now has two Golden Shoes ahead of his closest rival, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Messi will be hard pushed to match his previous exploits during the 2019-20 season, which has already been marked with two spells out with injury, restricting him to just one full 90-minute display in La Liga to date.
