Leo Messi, highest goalscorer of the 2009/10 season, has won his second Pichichi award.
Here are Barça's other Pichichi winners: Martín, César, Ré, Rexach, Krankl, Quini, Romário and Ronaldo.
Leo Messi closed out his La Liga campaign with 4 goals over Cristiano Ronaldo and 27 goals over Falcão, second and third, respectively. This is the player’s second Pichichi Award. This first time the Argentine won the trophy was in the 2009/10 season, when he scored 34 goals in 35 matches.
Before Messi, nine FC Barcelona players finished the season as the Liga’s top scorers: Mariano Martín (1942/43, 32 goals), César Rodríguez (1948/49, 28 goals), Cayetano Ré (1964/65, 25 goals), Carles Rexach (1970/71, 17 goals), Johan Krankl (1978 / 79, 29 goals), Quini (1980/81 y 1981/82, 20 and 26 goals, respectively), Romario (1993/94, 30 goals) and Ronaldo (1996/97, 34 goals).
It’s worth noting that Samuel Eto’o also won the Pichichi award in the 2004/05 season, level with Diego Forlán (25 goals apiece), but the daily Marca, entity that awards the prize since the 1952/53 season, stated that Eto’o had scored 24 goals, the 25th goal, scored against Mallorca, was given to Deco.
