Henry and Forlan share Golden Boot

LONDON, May 30 (Reuters) - Arsenal striker Thierry Henry and Villarreal's Diego Forlan this season share the Golden Shoe, awarded to the top scorer in the European leagues.

Forlan scored twice on Sunday in a 4-1 defeat of Levante to join Henry on the 25-goal mark.

Henry becomes the first player to win the award two years running and the sixth to win the award twice.

Following are the leading rankings for the Golden Shoe, after the completion of the major leagues:

It's so funny that as soon as United's shit striker goes on loan he wins the European golden boot.

Maybe this is a message to young talented strikers:
