Messi on the other hand was on a mission to break this record like it is some kinda milestone that has always been there.
PS: Messi scored 5 against Espanyol so what? He took shitload of penalties with that record on his mind which makes the whole thing plus the ridiculous media coverage about it cheap and low.
Thats because no one came even close to it
And Messi maybe cared about the record the last few weeks when he realized he was close, so yeah why not break it... his goal this year obviously wasnt to break a freaking scoring record... it was to win CL and La Liga... but he failed at both.. he said himself titles are more important for him than records and balon d'ors
And what should he do? Miss all the penalties? Not take them because some haters think it hurts his case? I mean what the hell is wrong with some people?!
