Diego Maradona: Barcelona Star Lionel Messi Deserves European Golden Boot & Can Win Many More

Former Argentina boss Diego Maradona has declared that Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi fully deserves the European Golden Boot and could win many more in his career.

Still just 23-year-old, Messi will collect the accolade on Thursday for the most domestic league goals scored in Europe last season. The Argentinean netted 34 goals for Barca in just 35 appearances and although Luis Suarez scored 35 league goals for Ajax, Messi finished higher as the Primera Liga holds a greater weighting than the Eredivisie.

The story is too old to be commented.
