Kylian Mbappe fires a warning to Lionel Messi over European Golden Shoe race

20 May 2019, 07:30

With just four goals separating him from Lionel Messi in the European Golden Boot race, Paris Saint Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe is confident he can close the gap between him and the Barcelona ace.

Lionel Messi scored a brace in two minutes as Barcelona faced Eibar in the last day of LaLiga's regular season. With the two goals, he secured 36 league goals and the league's Pichichi trophy. However, while Messi's league campaign is over, Mbappe has a game left to overtake his rival, with PSG away to Reims in their final Ligue 1 clash on Friday.

Speaking at the Union Nationale des Footballeurs Professionnels awards (the French PFA awards), Mbappe noted that he could still have a say in the Golden Boot race, "Yes I'm aiming for the golden shoe this year. This afternoon I took a break in my nap to see Messi's match - after his two goals I went back to bed! I still have 90 mins, I have nothing to lose!"

Although Messi has scored four more goals than Mbappe, the Golden Shoe's points system based on UEFA coefficients puts the Argentine six points ahead, according to Transfermarkt.
