Lionel Messi’s father has said his son intends to spend his entire career at Barcelona career and almost nothing could get him to wear the shirt of another team.

Jorge Messi was talking to radio station Cadena COPE when he insisted the star of the Camp Nou intended to retire wearing the shirt of the Catalan club.

“It is impossible to think about him (leaving). There would have to be a huge accident in the world for Leo to leave Barcelona,” he said.

Messi recently stated his desire to end his playing days with Barcelona, but this contradicted comments he made at the beginning of the year where he claimed he wanted to one day play in his native country.

It is not exactly a surprise for Lionel Messi to hit the headlines, but he did so in historic fashion last weekend by scoring his 85th and 86th goal of the year, surpassing the record held by Germany great Gerd Muller set in 1972.

However, this record has come under fire after recent claims by the Zambian FA that striker Godfrey Chitalu scored 107 goals in 1972 for Kabwe Warriors.

The goals were not recognised by FIFA but the Zambian FA have said they are in the process of compiling the necessary data and sending it on to world football’s governing body.
