Leo Messi is the best player of always in the FC Barcelona, in LaLiga and for many also in the history of the football in general. This type of debates always are complicated, but in what there is not doubt is in that the '10' culé is an only player and irrepetible. The one of Rosario began being a regateador of elite to the that could not stop anybody, but finish converting also in a goleador of period and in one of the best pasadores that have seen never.

In spite of not being leading centre and not having the physicist that is used to him presuppose to a goleador, the captain of the Barça is one of the greater 'killers' that have seen never. With the Barcelona, until this Tuesday, had marked 629 targets. With his selection has annotated 70, by what in total carried 699 so many and was to only one of the 700. It carried pursuing this varied goal parties and was him resisting until at last it could put it against the Athletic of Madrid.

Messi annotated the 2-1 favourable to the Barcelona of penalti marking like this the 700 of his career, a spectacular milestone that could not celebrate with victory, since the Catalans finished yielding the tie. Nevertheless, this does not subtract him merits to the forward, that goes to break all the marks when it withdraw . Witness something like this would have to be a moment special no only for the fans barcelonistas, but for all the world of the football. But the scarves and the colours notice too many times and in this case is what has occurred with this record.

The newspaper 'ACE', of tendency madridista, has gone back to put in doubt this milestone of Leo and has ensured that still it remains him a goal to arrive to the 700. In this information have remembered the famous goal that purportedly annotated Alexis Sánchez on 24 March 2012. The blaugrana won 2-0 to the Mallorca and Messi marked of fault the first. After the meeting, the Chilean commented him to the international albiceleste that had combed the ball mildly and that the target was his.

It is absurd to follow putting in doubt the record of Messi

But the referee did not see it like this and awarded him the so much to Messi, that since has he for his statistics. Eight years afterwards still there is who remembers this goal and follow wanting to remove it to the culé to snatch him momentáneamente this record of goals. "With his penalti in front of the Athletic of Madrid, Messi has 699 goals like professional: 629 in Barcelona and 70 in the Argentinian selection. An impressive quantity. Immense. So big, that gives shame argue by a goal. But the just, is just", explain in the article.

Argue so much time afterwards if Leo carries 699 or 700 is absurd and does not have any sense, but the '10' has left so many victims by the way that already at all surprises. According to the statistics, that is what explains, this so much was of the of Rosario and with his maximum penalty against the Atleti put the 700 of his life since it is professional. An authentic atrocity that will follow here all the life, him in spite of who weigh him.
