Lionel Messi receives Marca’s award for Best Player in LaLiga
Barcelona forward, Lionel Messi, has accepted Marca’s award for the Best Player in LaLiga in 2016/2017.
Messi attended Marca’s awards gala on Monday at the Contemporary Art Museum in Barcelona, where he was given a fifth career Alfredo Di Stefano Award.
The Argentina captain netted 37 goals and provided nine assists during the 2016/2017 LaLiga season.
“I want to thank my teammates and I share this special award with them,” Messi said at ceremony.
“My main aim is not to win individual awards but rather trophies with my team and we hope we can compete for La Liga. If individual trophies come after that, all the better.”
He also took home the Pichichi award for finishing as top scorer in La Liga.
