Leo Messi received the European Golden Shoe on Tuesday for the fifth time in his career after scoring 34 league goals in 2017-18. 

The Argentine was given the prize at an event in Barcelona, with Josep Maria Bartomeu, Eric Abidal and Sergio Busquets, among those present. 

Afterwards, he answered a few questions... 

-Golden Shoe:

"I didn't expect all this when I started, my dream was to be a professional. I never imagined so much... It's the fruit of the work, the effort and above all my teammates. I am in the best team in the world and that makes everything easier."

-Form:

"Thanks to God I feel really good, physically and mentally. The years keep passing, and I am trying to take care of myself, like I have done during my whole career, but now even more, because more demanding games, less time to rest. I am working hard to continue in same manner."

-Lyon in Europe 

"It is a difficult draw. In name, maybe they're not one of the strongest teams, but looking at them obviously we know it's going to be complicated. In a very difficult group, they went toe to toe with Manchester City, one of best team's in the world. It's a while away, between now and February a lot of things will happen, but we know it's going to be a complicated tie."
