- Lionel Messi is now set to become only player to top La Liga goal-scoring charts
- The Argentine will also break big record if he should win EPL and Champions League this term
- Barcelona are currently topping the Spanish La Liga standings
Lionel Messi is now on the verge of recording his name in another history books as far as football is concerned this season in the Spanish La Liga.
This comes after Barcelona announced that their captain stands a chance to become the only player to top the Spanish La Liga goal-scoring charts the most times.
Lionel Messi could also set a new world record for goals with a single club this season in the Spanish La Liga.
The Argentine has never played for any other club in his career than Barcelona where Lionel Messi has won every trophies any player can think of.
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is the only player with most titles with a single club and Lionel Messi can equal that record this season.
Messi will equal Ryan Giggs' record if the Argentine should steer Barcelona to win the Spanish La Liga title this season and also the Champions League.
Already, Barcelona are having the edge to retain their La Liga crown even though they will face serious competition from rivals Real Madrid.
“Messi is on course to top the Spanish goal charts for the seventh time which would move him one ahead of Athletic Bilbao legend, Telmo Zarra, with whom he is currently matched on six.
“Messi needs just 16 more goals to match Brazilian legend Pelé’s 643 goals for Santos, the most goals ever scored by a player for a single club,'' Barcelona explained.
The Brazilian and his younger brother ran into trouble at the airport in Paraguay where they were caught with fake passports and was jailed for 32 days.
Efforts made by his lawyers to get him released while in prison was abortive as the judge in charge of Ronaldinho's case failed to grant the bail.
And while inside the jail, Ronaldinho met many inmates and also played football and snapped pictures with them before his arrest was turned to house.
Since then, the World Cup winner has been staying at Hotel Palmaroga de Asuncion which is being owned by Barcelona where he is being taken care of.
While speaking with Mundo Deportivo, Ronaldinho admitted that although he is getting the best treatment stressing that lack of freedom is his major concern.
