Why Barcelona star Lionel Messi could yet win major Champions League award this season

He’s also shown his generosity on the pitch by supplying three goals for his team-mates.

The Barca attacker has taken 44 shots in the tournament, far more than any other player.

Cristiano Ronaldo, whose Juventus side was eliminated by Ajax in the quarter-final, is second in that category with six goals from 35 attempts.

Rumours of Messi’s retirement from international football after last summer’s failed World Cup campaign appear to have been wide of the mark.

It has been confirmed that he will lead Argentina’s squad at the Copa America this summer, with Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero back in the side for the first time since the 2018 World Cup.

Meanwhile, Messi is set to launch an apparel collection in conjunction with MGO, whose chief creative officer is Tommy Hilfiger’s sister, Ginny.

The premium lifestyle brand with “a sporty edge” will be primarily men’s wear but will include a few women’s tops as well, according to Hilfiger.

Hilfiger said there will also be some items in the mix that will be autographed by Messi “so the lucky customer will get a signed Leo piece,” she said.
