When his team failed to bring the league honor at their camp, Messi had no charm left to bring the individual glory. So, the report says that the Argentine icon footballer Lionel Messi is ready to give up the Pichichi Trophy in exchange for the La Liga throne.
In the last season of La Liga, Barcelona failed to bring the league throne at the Camp Nou. But still, there were no players who scored more goals than the Barcelona captain Lionel Messi. Considering the goal number, Lionel Messi has been awarded the Pichichi Trophy earlier yesterday.
Pichichi Trophy is the most prestigious individual award in La Liga which used to give to the highest scorer of the league every season. And Lionel Messi has already won the highest 7th Pichichi Trophy in his professional career. Because of his last season’s goal number, he has won his 7th Pichichi earlier yesterday but still, he saw his rival team Real Madrid celebrated for winning the league title.
So, his success has brought him so much pain. He was great in the last season but failed to bring the ultimate league glory at the Nou Camp. Yes, Messi is a player who used to give his first priority to the club. So, the Argentine forward has no interest in winning the Pichichi Trophy when his team did not win the league throne.
🗣 "Eight Pichichis? I prefer to win La Liga again."
"In all honesty, I don't know nor do I think about it, it's not something that worries me or obsesses me. I'd rather win La Liga again than get another Pichichi award, we'll fight for that."
