With the goodbye to Leo Messi, confirmed this Thursday for the club, Barça loses the best player in his story. Your statistics confirm it without any doubt. And that, by the ranks of the club, passed players from the size of Johan Cruyff, Diego Armando Maradona or Ladislao Kubala. The Argentine scorer palmarés, who turned 33 on June 24, is tremendously forceful. With him in the template, the entity has won four of its five cups of Europe. He could not be on the grass or the bench in the second, the accomplished before the arsenal in Paris in 2006, by injury, but was decisive in the following three, the two achieved before the United in 2009 and 2011, and the conquered Before Juventus, in 2015, with his friends Luis Suárez and Neymar next.
This 2020 is celebrated 17 years of its long layout with the first team at the hand of Frank Rijkaard. It was on 16 November 2003, before the Porto, in Dragao, that he forced himself to juggle him to see him on television. The duel ended with a blue-haired defeat by 2-0, but saw the debut of the Argentine in the second part, with the 14th, a dorsal with a lot of symbolism in the entity (was the favorite of Cruyff) on his back.
Its official premiere, however, would not occur until almost a year later, in a derby against Espanyol played on October 16, 2004 and ended 0-1 for Barça. The first of 633 as many of him as Barcelona, absolute record of the club, would arrive on May 1, 2015, before the Albacete. And in fact, he scored him twice. The first, practically a trace that would go up to the scoreboard, was nullified out of the game.
With Rijkaard was gaining importance, but the technician who gave him the definitive backwardness so that his legend began to step forward was Pep Guardiola. The society that he formed with Dani Alves on the right wing during the first compasses of the 2008-09 season was already lethal, but the danger of him was multiplied when the Santpedor bet of situating him as false front center. Real Madrid would suffer him in his meats in a party that would end with a win at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium for 2-6. With the current CITY technician on the bench, the Argentine would also earn the first of the six golden balls that look at him palmarés. Another absolute record that, right now, only Christian Ronaldo, with five in his credit, can threaten himself.
The duels with the Portuguese during the stage where he remained in the ranks of Real Madrid were absolutely climbing. Even when the two teams did not measure on the lawn. A struggle that served him not to lose ambition. In the 2008-09 campaign, Messi achieved the first of his seven pichichis, with a total of 34 goals that would also be the first of his six gold boots. Cristiano Ronaldo would beat him the following year with 40. An affront than the Argentine He was marking 50 and 46 so many in 2011-12 and 2012-13, respectively.
The league, precisely, is the title that has most managed to conquer as Barcelona: it has done it by 10 occasions. The supercopy of Spain, with eight trophies, the Copa del Rey, with six, the Champions, with four titles, and the supercopy of Europe and the World Club, each with three trophies.
Champions, on the other hand, is his great nailed spine. At the level of the World Cup, which is resisting with Argentina. Four years followed by Varapales in Europe, with the High 2-8 of Bayern as a colophon, have been at the end too much.Date Of Update: 05 August 2021, 14:38
