Record-breaker Messi to receive LFP tribute on Jan 11th



Javier Tebes has confirmed that the LFP will pay tribute to
La Liga’s all-time leading goalscorer, Lionel Messi, at
Barcelona’s meeting with Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou on
January 11.
The Argentina international broke Telmo Zarra’s record of
251 goals by netting a hat-trick in his club’s 5-1 rout of
Sevilla on November 22.
Messi’s achievement was set to be recognised at Barca’s
meeting with Eibar on December 20 but the LFP decided
against doing so out of respect to the Deportivo fan who
died as a result of injuries sustained during violent clashes
among fans in Madrid earlier in the day.
However, Tebes stated on Saturday that the LFP will now
celebrate Messi becoming Liga’s most prolific marksman
at a special ceremony at Barca’s next home league game,
against Atletico.
Messi, who made his Blaugrana debut in 2004, has since
taken his Primera Division tally to 258 goals.
