Messi Receives Awards for Top Scorer, Best Player in La Liga

BARCELONA – FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi received on Monday La Liga’s top scorer and best player awards for the 2016-2017 season.

The Argentine striker scored 37 goals in league action last season to earn his fourth Pichichi award for most goals in La Liga and his fifth Alfredo Di Stefano trophy for best player.

“As I always say, if the individual awards come, they are welcome, but my main goal is to fight for all of the titles,” Messi said during the Marca soccer awards ceremony in Barcelona.

“As I said in the (European) Golden Shoe ceremony award, I would like to dedicate (these trophies) to the locker room,” Messi said.

The ceremony comes days before the highly anticipated match between leader Barça and defending champion Real Madrid on Dec. 23.

“It is a special match because of what it means, because it is against Real Madrid and at their stadium. If we win, we will have a big advantage (14 points),” Messi said.

Although he downplayed the game’s importance in the fight for the title, Messi said it would be nice if the team ended the year in an auspicious fashion.
