What's the story?

Barcelona ace Lionel Messi has scored an insane amount of goals in his career but even then the Argentine was able to recall some of his favourite goals for the Catalan giants.

In case you didn't know...

Messi has scored a staggering 586 goals in his career for his club and 65 goals for his country so far and has only recently become the first player to have scored 400 goals in the history of La Liga. 

This record makes Messi only the second player to have reached the 400-goal milestone in Europe's top five leagues, with the first being Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo. 

The Argentine maestro, however, scored his 400th goal in 63 games fewer than his Portuguese counterpart.

The heart of the matter

Messi has now revealed that his favourite goal so far in his career was the his first ever goal he scored for the club.


Speaking to Mundo Deportivo, the 33-year-old said, "The first against Albacete from Ronnie's [Ronaldinho] pass I will never forget."

"The goals of the Clasicos are always special and against hard opponents that are usually up like Atlético, Valencia, Sevilla..."

"Those that I have had the luck to score against our fans here in the Camp Nou they are always nice, and they are also special that I scored as a visitor because of the difficulty of playing away."

The Argentine talisman further said that the most attractive goals don't necessarily have to be the most important goals, adding that those which serve a team purpose are far more important.  

"In the end the most important goals are not the most spectacular, but those that serve us as a team to win."

What's next?

Barcelona, who are presently at the top of the Spanish league table, will shift their focus to the Copa del Rey where they will face Levante later tonight.
