History Made As Lionel Messi Receives 5th Golden Shoe Award For Europe's Top Scorer

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.
