Messi becomes best player ever for FC Barcelona
New World Record for Messi
Barcelona is a city of many wonders, one of which is undoubtedly Lionel Messi. The star football player of FC Barcelona is nothing if not a legend. In fact, he officially made football history a few days ago when he broke the more than 50 years old record of goals under FC Barcelona ownership.
In 1954, when previous record holder, Cesar Rodriguez, left the Barça with his 235 goals (estimated now at 232 since Tuesday), the world was fairly confident that the record would remain untouched. And it has! For 58 years that is, until the 24 years old Argentinean football God, Lionel Messi, happily skipped over and crushed Cesar's records like one crushes an ant. With a smile, at that!
Messi is the king of Football
By far the best player FC Barcelona has ever seen, Messi's accomplishments are praised daily, and not only in Barcelona: the sports newspaper Marca, traditionally supporters of the deadly rivals of FC Barcelona, Real Madrid CF, claimed that Messi was the only football player in the world capable of just deciding the score of a game by himself. National newspaper El País explains that "Messi is not an athlete", but rather a naturally talented player who simply enjoys playing and has fun doing his job; his native country itself, historically passionate about football and who gave birth to many legendary football players, even started wondering whether the young Messi was actually human!
His coach Josep Guardiola, considered as one of the best football coaches in the world, is proud to announce that his team effectively owns the best player in the world, (perhaps in the history of football!), and such for 12 euros it cost the team to get Messi to play for them - instead of the several millions it sometimes costs to buy a player from another team.
A lifetime of accomplishments at only 24 years old
Three time consecutive winner of the FIFA Ballon d'Or (FIFA Golden Ball, French award given to the best European football player of the year), as well as best scorer in the 2011
Champions League, most amazing goal in Liga BBVA, and recipient of the 2008 Olympic gold medal (among many, many other awards), the football player never ceases to impress and amaze his friends, fans, and teammates. So much so that the Spanish sports newspaper El Deportivo portayed each FC Barcelona players wearing Messi's football uniform as a tribute to his talent, in an article titled "FC Barcelona gives in to Messi".
At only 24 years old and a career that is just beginning, who knows what surprises await in the feet of the oh-so-talented Barça player.
