Ciro Immobile-Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Ciro Immobile Are Winners of the European Golden Shoe.
The Lazio striker Ciro Immobile rounded off the season with another goal in Lazio’s 2-0 win over Brescia that will be going on relegation. On Saturday he was crowned this season’s Golden Shoe winner.
Immobile scored for the 36th time in Serie A, equalling the league’s best alongside Gonzalo Higuain for Napoli in the 2015/16 season.
The Italy striker, 30, joins some illustrious winners of the European Golden Shoe, awarded to the player who finishes the season as the leading league scorer of all of Europe’s top divisions, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The weightings are determined by the league’s ranking on the Uefa coefficients, which in turn depend on the results of each league’s clubs in European competition over the previous five seasons.
Goals scored in the top five leagues according to the Uefa coefficients list are multiplied by a factor of two, goals scored in the leagues ranked six to 21 are multiplied by a factor of 1.5, and goals scored in leagues ranked 22 and below are multiplied by a factor of 1. Thus, goals scored in higher ranked leagues will count for more than those scored in weaker leagues
