Messi on Zsóri’s Puskás Victory: “Stunning Goal, Deserved Award”

Ábrahám Vass 2019.10.17.

At this year’s Golden Shoe award, where Lionel Messi was decorated with the prize for the sixth time in his career, Nemzeti Sport had the chance to ask FC Barcelona’s Argentinian star about Hungarian teenager Dániel Zsóri’s goal that topped his for the Puskás Award.

Messi told the Hungarian sports daily that “it was a stunning goal, his bicycle kick came from far and high, he absolutely deserved the award.”

The award is named after legendary footballer Ferenc Puskás of the Golden Team (Magic Magyars) and Real Madrid.

In the title’s 10 year history, Zsóri became the first Hungarian awarded by overcoming Messi and Colombian Juan Fernando Quintero in this year’s final vote.
