The figure of Brazilian legend Pele, a former Santos star who has lasted for forty-six years, was seriously threatened during the new year because of Lionel Messi, the legend of Barcelona and Argentina, who managed to achieve many unique records throughout his career.
Pele has spent the past 50 years and is sure that no player in history can achieve his unique goal-scoring achievement with one club, but Lionel Messi has become a source of concern for the Black Jewel and is close to breaking his unique number.
Pele kept his distinguished scoring record since 1974, where he scored 643 goals for Santos for 17 years, accompanied by the senior Brazilian club since 1956, and also made unique achievements with the Brazilian national team.
After Messi scored a goal against Alaves in his LaLiga match on Saturday, Argentine flea had 618 official goals, and they are only 25 goals from Pele’s goal equalizer with Santos.
Looking at the average Argentine player each year, we find that Messi has succeeded in scoring 50 goals and more in the last nine years, a new challenge that awaits him in the new year as it is expected that he will surpass Pele’s number with Santos much unless he is stopped by anything emergency such as a strong injury or anything else.
Messi is also expected to achieve three times what was achieved by the second historic club scorer in the Catalan club, Cesar Rodriguez, who ended his career with 232 goals.
Messi scored 432 goals for Barcelona in La Liga, he scored 114 goals in the Catalan shirt in the Champions League, 51 goals in the King’s Cup, 18 in the Spanish Super, 5 in the Club World Cup and 3 in the European Super Championship, for a total of 618 goals.
Messi has also achieved many other unique accomplishments throughout his career, the most important of which are individual awards, where he won the Golden Ball six times, the golden shoe six times, and the Champions League 4 times and the Spanish League 10 times and can add more and more in the new year.
