For the past number of years, one of the football players who has been large and in charge, won laurels, broken records and scored unimaginable goals on the planet is Barcelona’s forward Lionel Messi. It’s another year and this young man who makes football playing look simple is set on breaking another record by surpassing the most noteworthy recently recorded level in football that Pelé has set for such a long time. Pelé who is probably the best player ever to have lived, scored 643 goals for his Brazilian club, Santos somewhere in the range of 1956 and 1974.
These goals denoted the record number of goals scored by a player for a solitary club. Interestingly, this amazing and incredible record has nearly remained unbroken for 50 strong years. Barcelona’s poster boy, Lionel Messi is presently 25 short of that record and is ravenous to break that tall ‘pillar’ down despite the fact that it will be quite difficult.
Already, Messi has hit the back of the net multiple times in the 2019/2020 season in 20 appearances for Barcelona. In the event that Messi proceeds with his goalscoring ability, it should take him very nearly 32 games to secure this record. Particularly when there are around 18 matches to be played in the Spanish LA Liga. Moreover, there are more Champions League games to be played with Messi extremely certain to score in each game to beat Pelé’s record.
If Messi is able to accomplish this record, it will be worthwhile to Messi as the best soccer player ever in light of the fact that Pelé played most of his vocation in the inside forward position, whereas Messi plays as a right-winger. This would make the accomplishment substantially more huge for Messi.
