FIFA Refuses To Recognize Messi as Record Holder for Most Goals in a Year


When the little man finally broke the record, scoring his 86th goal on Dec. 9, the football community was left in awe of the accomplishment, knowing they had seen something that had never happened before.

Over the past few days, though, that last part has been called into question. (Barcelona, FIFA, Industry, Lionel Andrés Messi, Spanish Primera Division)

So basically, according to FIFA, nobody holds the record. I can't wait to hear someone tell me that Chitalu holds the "unofficial" record. -_-

Who care though Nes_Daze? Messi has the most goals in a calendar year in the best continent for football. He's done it at the highest level. Don't think it'll bother him too much. He'd rather win a Champions League final again or a World Cup. Probably pinch a 4th Ballon d'Or as well.
