Barcelona forward Lionel Messi picked up a record-extending sixth - and third consecutive - European Golden Shoe award Wednesday following his outstanding individual 2018-19 domestic campaign.

The award is presented to the top goalscorer in league football across Europe, with the Argentine finding the net 36 times last season as Barca retained their La Liga title.

Messi was three ahead of nearest rival Kylian Mbappe, who scored 33 times for Paris Saint Germain as they won France's Ligue 1.

The forward, who won his first Golden Shoe in 2010, admitted he was disappointed to have missed out on Champions League glory again after Barca blew a 3-0 first leg lead to Liverpool at the semi-final stage.

However, he said he was conscious that the league should be the club's priority.

Barca have endured a difficult start to the season, losing twice in their first eight league games. 

They have won their last three matches to pull themselves into second place on 16 points, two behind leader Real Madrid.
