Yesterday, Barcelona FC striker player, Lionel Messi, was honored with the European Soccer Golden Boot, for the 50 goals he scored last season.
During a press conference, the Argentinean star was proud to be closer to Pele’s records.
“Is an honor being so close to the numbers of one of the most important persons in soccer. My goal is not to get awards, but being so close to Pele, in a statistics level, it’s very nice,” said Messi.
Messi reiterated: “I do not fight for this award or for any individual one. We fight to win titles, we’re lucky we are doing well in the Champions League and, tomorrow (today) starts the time trial for the Premier League (…) “.
