Lionel Messi became the top scorer in a single club, surpassing Pele's old record. After scoring a new goal with FC Barcelona and giving his team victory, Lionel Messi made his joy public but at the same time generated a great controversy for having humiliated Pele on social networks.
In addition to posting that he set Pele's record, Lionel Messi admitted that he never believed he could break a record when he was little. After many years of proving that he is one of the best strikers in the world, Lionel Messi continues to break records with FC Barcelona, the club that saw him born.
Lionel Messi thanked all the people who supported him throughout his career and who caused him to surpass Pele with this record achieved at FC Barcelona. Furthermore, Lionel Messi gave FC Barcelona fans hope that he could stay in the Liga BBVA for one more season.
Pele and Lionel Messi are two of the few players who spent their entire careers in the same club and who managed to succeed in the team that raised them as footballers. Lionel Messi became the player with the most goals for the same club and it will be almost impossible for another player to beat him. This record of Lionel Messi is one of the most incredible in history.
