Messi Makes LaLiga History

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi made history in LaLiga on Sunday by breaking a record previously held by one of his former teammates.

Click through the gallery to see the foreign players with the most appearances in LaLiga, according to Transfermrkt.

The Argentine made his 423rd appearance in the Spanish top flight as Barca drew 2-2 with neighbours Girona.

In doing so, Messi has now become the foreign player with the most appearances in Spain's top division.

The 31-year-old surpassed his former teammate Dani Alves, who racked up 422 appearances for Sevilla and Barca.

 
Messi made his LaLiga debut on October 16 in 2004, coming on as a substitute against Espanyol, and since then has racked up 387 goals and 166 assists.
