The 33-year-old GOAT set another milestone in his extraordinary career and can continue to set the standard overcoming seasons.


Barcelona captain has now scored more goals than any other legends for a single club on this planet.


The mighty Barca showed their great playing style to thrash Real Valladolid 3-0 away in La Liga on Tuesday night as the Argentine little magician,Leo Messi scored a 65th minute goal to surpass the Brazil legend Pele and become the all time leading goal scorer for a single club.Messi achieved the peak with a marvellous strike,assisted by the 18-year old Pedri.The back-hill pass from the young sensation was result into a great success by Messi’s touch.


On this achievement Messi wrote on his instagram,``When I started playing football I never thought I’d break any record , especially not the one I achieved today that Pele held,I can only give thanks to everyone who helped me during these years,my teammates,my family,my friends,and everyone who supports me everyday’’


The record stood for 46 years.Pele scored 643 goals for Santos between 1956 to 1974 in 757 matches.On saturday,when Messi equalized Pele’s 643 goals,Pele congratulated him on instagram,’`congratulation on your historic record,Lionel.But,above all,congratulations on your beautiful career at Barcelona.Stories like ours,of loving same club for so long,unfortunately will be increasingly rear in football.I admire you very much,Leo Messi.’’


Comparison:

Sports don't allow us to compare two legends of different time.Pele was most appropriately a central striker and Messi is more like a Right-wing forward or a Playmaker or Number10.

The Brazil legend,Pele,80,made his debut in 1956 at Santos at the age of 15.The Argentine maestro Messi made his debut at Barcelona at the age of 17.Pele scored 77 goals for international level in 92 appearances while Messi scored 71 for Argentina in 142 matches till now.Pele lifted three times the great world cup for Brazil and Messi finished as runners-up with Argentina in 2014. 


Gerd Muller came closest to matching this record.The former german international netted 565 goals for Bayern Munich.The next two record holders in top five for a single club are Fernando Peyroteo with 544 goals and Josep Bican with 534 goals respectively.Cristiano Ronaldo is in rank 10 with 450 goals for Real madrid.


The Journey to 644 goals:

The phenomenal journey of Messi started from 2004,October 16.It is a magical date for Braca fans.Leo Messi made his debut for FC Barcelona against RCD Espanyol with the jersey number 30 before switching to 19.In May 1,2005,barca-Albaceta match, a 17 year old Messi scored his first goal.In the 91st minute Ronaldinho scooped a pass as ludicrous as the last and Messi lifted it gently in.

Since then Messi has been doing the same thing for one club again and again for decades.Messi is keeping the pace and winning everything possible for Barca and winning 6 ballon-d'ors and Fifa The Best awards.

Messi has an incredible stats in both goals and assists section for Braca.Messi is doing the same thing for Braca for years after years.


The world’s reaction on Messi’s achievement:

The Argentine scored 458 goals in La Liga,118 in the Champions League,53 in Copa del rey,14 in Supercopa,3 in UEFA Super cup and 5 in Club World cup.He has won La LIga 10 times,Spanish Super cup 8 times,Copa del rey 6 times,UCL 4 times,FIFA world cup 3 times and UEFA Super cup 3 times.

World football  always acknowledges his success.Gary Lineker tweeted``To beat Messi’s 644 goals someone will have to score an average of 43 goals a season for 15 years…..for one club’’

The former Barca captain,Carles Puyol said``Lionel Messi is capable of playing at the highest level for another 4 or 5 years.He is now 33 years old and takes care of himself.he is motivated and eager,and I think he has 3 or 4 years to go at this level if he is lucky enough to not have any major injuries and if he continues playing with the same desire to improve and keep winning,with that motivation.’’

Puyol added``He is not the same player today as he was when he started.He has been adding records and improving , he is a very complete player who can set the rhythm of the game,score free kicks,goals, give assists. He does practically everything!’’


When asked if Puyol thought messi was going to be the `best of the best’,Puyol replied:``You quickly realised that he is a different player,that he makes a difference and that he can win a game by himself,but as the years go by,and you see that he continues to improve and add records in his game,well,he ends up where he is today.


For me , he is the best player in history. He has shown it for many years and that is not easy.

I don’t know how many years he has already been at this level,maybe 13 or 14,and that is very difficult to do”  


Budweiser marked Messi's occasion by gifting the beer bottles to the goal-keepers who had conceded from Messi at the ground.Budweiser celebrated the occasion with 644 special beer-bottles.Among the keepers,the special selection were Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak,Chelse’s Kepa and Juventus’s Gianluigi Buffon.


The little magician is proving himself continuously and marking the words of Ronaldinho once said,``This kid[Messi] is better than me’’.Hope the world will be able to see the extraordinary show-off from Messi the GOAT in the next couple of years.
