Lionel Messi wears Paulino Alcantara’s vintage Barcelona shirt as mark of respect after beating scoring record

Last Saturday, Lionel Messi achieved yet another career milestone, in what is now essentially a weekly habit.

Against Osasuna, he surpassed the previous holder of Barcelona’s all-time goalscoring record, Paulino Alcantara, who had 369.

Messi surpassed the Filipino-Spaniard to make it 371, courtesy of a hat-trick, and to mark the passing of the record, Messi donned a replica shirt from Alcantara’s era (1920s), replete with battered old ball and laced collar.
