Lionel Messi creates new record in the La Liga


XtraTime Web Desk:
Argentine genius Lionel Messi continues to add the glorious feathers on his crown. The latest one is indeed a special one for the forward.

Lionel Messi has broken the record for the most appearances in LaLiga by a non-Spanish player.
 
Messi made his 423rd La Liga appearance when he was named in the Barcelona team for Sunday’s home game against Girona.
 
The Argentina international overtakes a former Barcelona team-mate, Dani Alves, who previously occupied the record with 422 outings.
 
Messi is in a rich vein of form since taking the Barca captaincy, scoring a hat-trick in a 4-0 Champions League defeat of PSV last time out.
