Pichichi Trophy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Athletic Bilbao striker Rafael "Pichichi" Moreno is the trophy's namesake.

In Spanish football, the Trofeo Pichichi is awarded by the sports newspaper Marca to the top goalscorer of each La Liga season. Named after the Athletic Bilbao striker Rafael "Pichichi" Moreno, the trophy has been awarded annually since the 1952–53 season.[1] All top scorers who preceded the award's creation were retroactively named Pichichi winners by Marca. Since the 2014–15 season, the top scorer of the Liga Iberdrola is also awarded the Pichichi Trophy.[2]

The Pichichi is not officially recognised by the league's governing body, the Liga de Fútbol Profesional (LFP). As the award is based on Marca's subjective criteria, its data may differ from the official match delegate reports. For the top scorers in La Liga according to LFP data, see List of La Liga top scorers.
