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.
