BARCELONA (SPAIN) Lionel Messi has won 34 trophies with the Barcelona shirt, among them 4 Champions League and 10 Liga, or the Spanish soccer championship, in the last 15 years. Yesterday Messi received the sixth Golden Shoe of his prestigious career. The Argentine striker won this award for 3 consecutive seasons. After receiving the Golden Shoe, he was interviewed by Filippo Maria Ricci for La gazzetta dello Sport. Here are his statements.
Messi said he was different from Cristiano Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic, compared to them, he has no star attitude and is very shy off the field: "Cristiano Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic are stars and make them talk about them even off the field. I prefer that others talk about me. I know what I am, what I did and what I can still give, but I keep it for myself. If anything, I thank the makers of many of my goals, like Suarez and Jordi Alba ”.
"I dream of continuing to win trophies with my teams, I'm more interested in individual prizes. And then I dream of winning the Champions League again. This is the big challenge: to put another Champions on the bulletin board also because it is something that then brings with it individual recognition. But then again, winning The Best, the Golden Ball or the Puskas is not part of my goals: if it happens, better, but if they don't come it's not a problem ”.
"Wonder if I was surprised by Inter? No, because we had been following her for a while and we knew what we were going to face. I had seen her in the championship, where she started very well, in which she is fighting on a par with Juventus, which is neither easy nor obvious. We knew that Conte's is a very neat team, that he plays by heart, that he already has his automatisms clear and that he would have created difficulties for us. And so it was ”.
