Ahotor FM Sports Update- Messi Wins Pichichi Trophy

Lionel Messi has regained the Pichichi Trophy for the first time since 2012-13 by finishing as La Liga’s highest scorer.

 The Argentine netted 37 times for Barcelona this season, claiming the award for a fourth time and finishing eight goals ahead of last term’s leading marksman Luis Suarez.

 

Cristiano Ronaldo, who has fallen behind his great rival in terms of the number of Pichichi titles he has won, came third, having struck 25 times.

 Messi’s haul means that the winner of the prize has scored on average more than one goal per game in each of the last seven seasons, and his tally will likely be enough to also claim the European Golden Boot.

 It is an award that he and Ronaldo have dominated for the best part of a decade, with Suarez last term the first player since Diego Forlan in 2008-09 to break the pair’s duopoly.
