Catalan Government to award Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi to Receive Prestigious Catalan Award

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is set receive Catalonia's highest distinctions, the Creu de Sant Jordi.

The award was created in 1981 by the Catalan government to recognise individuals who have successfully contributed to the identity of the region.

Messi is widely considered to be one of the greatest players of all time all around the world, having won five Ballon d'Or trophies and enjoying spectacular success at Barca since making his debut in 2004.

He has won 34 major honours as a Barca player – more than any other player in the club's history – and is its all-time record goalscorer with 598 goals across all competitions.

And with Messi not slowing down for the time being, He looks most likely to see him break and set more records...if not receiving more awards.
