Messi breaks 59 years old La Liga record

Lionel Messi finally came to terms with winnings ways again as he broke the much anticipated Telmo Zarra's record of 251 Liga goals.

The record has been untouched for 60 years, until Saturday, 22 of November, when 3 goals from Messi struck the record in two and set yet a new one.

"When I scored this goal, I couldn't imagine I could break any record, let alone this one previously held by the great Telmo Zarra. I was only able to achieve this because of the support I have had from so many people during my time here and I would like to dedicate this achievement to you all. Thanks for always being with me. I would also like to dedicate this to the people who are no longer with us anymore. I will never forget you. Thank you everyone for standing with me!"

(He was referring to his first league goal)

With 253 goals and counting, Messi is expected to hold the record far longer than his predecessor Telmo Zarra.

    A year is enough for Messi to set another record that will take more than 60 years to be broken, even if CR7 is going to borrow from his premiership goals, he can’t catch the jet.

    Messi is your day enjoy it to the fullest, I know Ronaldo will break the record but Messi will still be the all time top scorer, even ronaldo scores messi will score too. In a self-fulfilling prophecy, with the Argentine getting the golden touch! we all know now that Messi has past Telmo Zarra to stand as the definite all-time Liga goalscorer with 253 goals, Messi is better than Ronaldo….Let that sink in!!!!
