Thus, see him beating all the records no longer surprises too much, not even if we take into account the numbers that is achieving season after season. Now already it has 32 years and does more than a decade that keeps in the Olimpo of the football, but his performance no only no decrece, but even it recycles season after season to keep on being the number one.

However, his evolution has carried him to practise a much more collective game that still is more beneficial for the team. Of course, all this does not prevent that have the goal between eyebrow and eyebrow and, the records, to shot.
