Recently, in Qatar, Lionel Messi has reached the top of glory and won the title he has been waiting for – the World Cup. Looking further, this superstar has pocketed 10 La Liga championships, 4 times Champions League, Copa America and even a gold medal at the 2008 Olympics.
However, there is a title that Messi has never been awarded – “Golden Foot”. The “Golden Feet” can be understood as an award to honor the senior players of the football village. Players are only accepted once and must be over 28 years old.
Previous winners include Zlatan Ibrahimovic (2012), Mohamed Salah (2021), Cristiano Ronaldo (2020) and most recently Robert Lewandowski.
“I’m very happy, I’m very proud,” the Polish striker shared when accepting the award in 2022.
“For me, it’s an honor to win this award because I know how hard I had to work to get it and now I can be proud of myself.”
“If you see the names on the list of candidates who have won this award, that makes me even more proud.” Lewandowski closed.
