Pele Sends Message To Messi After Equalling Record

Brazil legend Pele has sent a message to FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, who equalled his impressive record on Saturday.

Read: Messi Equals Pele's Incredible Record

While Barcelona endured a tough night against Valencia at the Camp Nou, Messi still had one reason to smile after netting his 643rd goal for the club.

The first-half goal saw the Argentine talisman move level with Pele as the player with the most goals scored for a single club.

While Messi is likely to break the record in the coming weeks, Pele took to instagram to congratulate the Barcelona captain.

The post read:

"When your heart overflows with love, it is difficult to change your path," the 80-year-old former forward wrote on Instagram.

"Like you, I know what it's like to love wearing the same shirt every day. Like you, I know that there is nothing better than the place we feel at home.

"Congratulations on your historic record, Lionel. But above all, congratulations on your beautiful career at Barcelona.

"Stories like ours, of loving the same club for so long, unfortunately will be increasingly rare in football. I admire you very much, @leomessi."
