For the last three seasons, Messi is winning the Golden Shoe. But it might be changed this time.
Considering the current critical situation when Coronavirus is spreading and most of the leagues in Europe have been closed already. If the Golden Shoe will be given considering the current statistics, no big player will win the trophy.
