Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi, on Tuesday received a record fifth Golden Shoe award, for finishing as the top goal scorer in Europe last season.

Messi scored 34 goals in 68 games for Barcelona, putting him ahead of Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who has won the award four times, hit 26 goals in 52 matches for Real Madrid.

After being presented with his latest prize in Barcelona, Messi said: “The truth is, I had no idea this would happen when I started. I dreamt of playing professional football and enjoying success, I love the game, but I never imagined I would have so much.

“I enjoy the work, the effort, I’m at the best team in the world and play with the best team-mates in the world, so everything is easier.”
