Brazilian club Santos have disputed recent claims that Barcelona super star, Lionel Messi has surpassed Pele’s record of goals scored by a player for a single club after he scored his 644th for Barcelona about a fortnight ago.

 

 

Pele's total for Santos, recognized by many as 643, was considered the most by any player at a single club until Messi scored his 644th for Barca during a 3-0 win over Real Valladolid in La Liga.

 

Three-time World Cup winner Pele even congratulated Messi, but Santos claimed in an Instagram post that goals by their former player in prestigious friendlies should count towards his overall total.

"In the last few days, there has been a lot of talk in the media and on social media about how many goals Pele scored in a Santos shirt," a post reads on Santos’ Instagram page on Monday.

"According to some statistics, the Argentine Lionel Messi (Barcelona) became the player with the most goals for a single club, when he scored 644 for the Catalans, excluding friendlies -- which some call official goals.

"Pele has already congratulated Barcelona's No. 10: 'Stories like ours, of love for the same clubs for so long, sadly, will keep becoming rarer in football,' O Rei [The King] wrote on social media

"However, part of the media report the total, while excluding the best record of all: the total number of goals for the clubs. Pele scored 1,091 for Santos.

"In the expert press accounts, O Rei scored 643 in competitive matches and the 448 goals scored in friendly matches and tournaments were ostracized as if they hold less value.

"The 448 goals which today they try to disqualify, were scored against the best teams of the time. Club America (Mexico) and Colo Colo (Chile) each conceded nine goals against Pele.

 

“Inter Milan, one of the great European sides in the 1960s, conceded eight from O Rei. The list is immense and includes huge names: River Plates, Racing, Boca Juniors, Juventus, Lazio, Napoli and Benfica, to name just a few.

 

"Even Barcelona, where Messi plays, was one of Pele's victims. He scored four goals in four games [against them]."

These claims are yet to be attacked, admitted or dissected by relevant bodies, making the next few days rather interesting for observers and followers of football across the globe.
