Messi picked up Golden Shoe Number #6 for 36 goals for Barcelona this season.
That makes it two more boots than C Ron – who has won it four times.( Only)
After that there are whole bunch of lesser mortals who have won it two times – Gerd Müller, Dudu Georgescu,Fernando Gomes,Ally McCoist, Mário Jardel,Thierry Henry, Diego Forlán and Luis Suárez.
Kylian Mbappe,who aspires to be on this list of soccer immortals,fell short this year by 3 goals.
He only managed 33 goals – failing thus to catch up with Messi.
( Messi has claimed the award for the third year running – which is brilliant also)
He is the first and only player since 1968 to get a hat trick of Golden Shoes.
Maybe the good folk who are figuring out who to give the Ballon d’Or this year to,will factor that fact into their calculations.
