Lionel Messi Happy With Second Golden Shoe

The trophy was Messi's second "Golden Boot".

''It is a prize for scoring goals, but without my team-mates I couldn't have scored them,'' he told reporters.

"I remember goals not because of their beauty, but because of their importance.

"I am happy to win my second Golden Shoe. Although individual trophies are not what I compete for, I play to win team trophies." 

"I'm grateful to Barcelona for what they've done for me. My dream is to end my career at the club, before returning to Argentina," Messi added.

Barca manager, Tito Vilanova,  commented on his player's achievement.

"Messi Golden Shoe? I don't think we'll ever see another player like Leo. Mainly because of the way he understands the game."
