Messi arrives in Rosario to attend the Christmas celebrations in his hometown

Argentine legend Lionel Messi, player of Paris Saint-Germain, arrived in Rosario to spend the Christmas holidays on his private plane.

And the Argentine media monitored the moments when Lionel Messi arrived in his country, in preparation for the Christmas celebrations.

Yesterday, Lionel Messi participated with his club Paris Saint-Germain in the Lorient match, which ended in a positive tie with a goal for each of them in the nineteenth round of the French League.

Despite the only title that his club achieved this year, the King’s Cup only, Messi’s individual numbers gave him a precious record after he broke the record of German legend Gerd Muller, nicknamed “The Torpedo”, who scored 85 goals in 1972, including 72 goals with his team Bayern Munich. And 13 with his country as an international, in a total of 60 matches.

The 25-year-old Argentine “flea” surprised the world when he broke this number that had eluded everyone for four decades, scoring 91 goals in 69 games, including 77 with Barcelona and 12 with his country.

Before that, Messi surpassed the number of the Brazilian jewel, Pele, who scored 75 goals in 1958 with his team Santos and the Seleção team.

In 2012, the Argentine star scored 59 goals in the Spanish League (in 36 games), 13 with the Tango (in 11 games), 12 in the Champions League, five in the Cup and two in the Super Cup.

Messi scored most of his goals with the left foot (81 goals), seven with the right and three with the head, according to the Catalan club on its website. He also scored 78 goals inside the area, including 14 from penalty kicks, and 13 outside the area, seven of them with direct free kicks.
