Calendar of FC Barcelona

Although Leo Messi abandoned the FC Barcelona, his name will follow written of first in the books of history of the club, because probably anybody will be able to surpass all his registers. The Argentinian commissioned , in 17 seasons defending the elastic Barcelona, to surpass all the marks and records, even putting his name by in front of big historical legends of the Barça and of the world-wide football like Johan Cruyff, Diego Armando Maradona, Rivaldo or Ronaldinho.

The four above-mentioned legends are, without place to doubts, the big historical references of the club 'pre-Messi'. However, all his numbers remain totally opacados if they are compared with the ones of the Argentinian in the Camp Nou... Even if they joint the ones of the four. For example, between them jugadoron 17 seasons in total, the same that played Messi only from his debut in front of the Albacete.

With the parties the difference is abysmal. If we add all the parties in which Cruyff, Maradona, Rivaldo or Ronaldinho defended the elastic Barcelona, the sum would be 680 official clashes, by the 778 crashes in which Messi played with the Barça. The same it happens with the goals. Cruyff Marked 60, Maradona 38, Rivaldo 130 and Ronaldinho other 94. In total, 322, less than the half of the ones of 'The Flea' (670 targets).

A 'magnet' for the titles

If in question of parties and goals gave them a 'dance', with the titles is exactly the same, and even more evident the big difference of the Argentinian regarding all the trophies that celebrated with the Barça. Beginning with the Leagues (Messi won 10, of 17 possible), the double that Cruyff (1), Maradona, Rivaldo (2) and Ronaldinho (2).

It won, besides, four Champions League. Only Ronaldinho had won a (the one of Paris, in which Messi was not by injury), the rest remained in zero; orn factor that speaks of the big impact that had 'The Flea' in the history of the Barça and that his name, by more than in occasions will look for to leave it (therefore of the Messi dependency and of all what lost in defence with him), will be impossible to surpass or replace.
