“Thank you very much for coming to Paris. I do not know if we will see someone who surpasses me or notbut I can only say that it is an honor to be in the history of Spanish LaLiga. It seemed crazy to be able to overtake Zarra and in the end I was able to overcome him. I am very grateful”, declared the current Paris Saint Germain striker upon receiving the trophy awarded by the director of the Marca newspaper, Juan Ignacio Gallardo.

Messi collected the award in the French capital by not being able to attend the gala held this Monday in Madrid.
