Barcelona's Lionel Messi Dons Another Dodgy Jacket

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi picked up another award in another dodgy jacket on Wednesday.

The Argentinian collect the Golden Boot award in a jacket which looks like it was rejected by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen for a wallpaper design.

He doesn't look convinced either, does he?

Messi suffered a fashion-faux pas at the beginning of the year when he wore a polka dot dinner jacket to collect his fourth consecutive Ballon d'Or award.

It compounds a mixed week for the injured Messi, who has effectively lost his world player of the year status to the relentless Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, his 46 La Liga goals for Barça last season which earned him the golden shoe will go some way to consoling him.

"I dedicate this award to my family, to the people who are there in the toughest times, and my teammates," he said after receiving the award from Barcelona legend Hristo Stoichkov.

"I want to thank them because without them I wouldn't have achieved anything. It's a prize for the squad."
