Messi is only 50 goals behind Pele’s unique record
Barcelona’s top scorer, Lionel Messi, is not far from Pele’s top achievement, which has been intact for almost half a century. The Argentinian master is 50 goals from the King of the Football record for the most goals for a club. Since 2004, Leo reports 593 hits. In November last year, La Pulga surpassed Gerd Müller’s second-highest player, 565 for Bayern Munich. Considering that the “tenth” of the Catalunya for the tenth consecutive season marks 40 goals and more, it is predicted that Messi will back Pele in 2020.
