And finally… Messi breaks Barca record

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

He’s not a bad little player is he? On Tuesday Lionel Messi broke Barcelona’s 60-year-old scoring record after grabbing a hat-trick against Granada at the Nou Camp. The little Argentine’s third goal was his 234th for the club and saw him break Cesar Rodriguez’s record set in the 50s. It was also Messi’s 54th goal in all competitions this season. Wow.
