Topscorer 2013/2014: Luis Suarez (Liverpool), Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)


THE GOLDEN SHOE European Sports Media (ESM) is the owner of the rights of the Golden Shoe. This trophee will be handed over every year to the official topscorer of Europe. The Golden Shoe has a long history with great names as winners. Since ESM took over the rights and the adminstration from Adidas the formula changed. Now scoring in the top five leagues of Europe (Spain, England, Germany, Italy and France) is twice as much worth as scoring in the lower leagues. Every goal scored in the five top leagues is ranked with two points. In the lower leagues with one point. Between we find countries/leagues where a goal is honoured with 1,5 point. The ranking of countries is based on the UEFA coefficient-list, which determines the number of clubs to be invited to act in the Champions League and the Europe league. Starting in January ESM publishes every Monday the actual ranking based on the scorers in the weekend before. On behalf of ESM Sander Behrens from ElfVoetbal is gathering and producing all results.
