Gary Lineker has heaped huge praise on Lionel messi Lionel Messi after he broke Cristiano Ronaldo’s record.

Barcelona legend Gary Lineker has heaped huge praise on Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward Lionel Messi after he broke Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of non-penalty goals scored.

The legendary Argentine found the net in PSG’s 1-0 win over Olympique Lyonnais on September 18.

PSG winger Neymar glided past several Lyon defenders before finding Lionel Messi who curled a delightful effort past goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.

It was the former Barca forward’s sixth goal in 11 appearances so far this season and he is wowing fans with captivating performances.

Ex-Blaugrana striker Lineker was impressed by Messi’s goal, which has now taken the Argentine above long-time rival Cristiano Ronaldo for non-penalty goals scored.

Lineker tweeted:

“With 672 non penalty goals Messi sneaks ahead of Ronaldo having played 150 games fewer. The numbers these two post are nuts.”

It has been a magnificent start to the 2022-23 campaign for the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner following an unconvincing debut season at the Parc des Princes.

Messi failed to recapture the incredible form that had preceded him at Barcelona.

He managed 38 goals and 14 assists in his final campaign at the Nou Camp.

The Argentinian found the net on 11 occasions last season for PSG whilst contributing 15 assists.

However, Messi is back to his best in Paris colors and is outshining Cristiano Ronaldo, who is having a difficult spell at Manchester United.

The Portuguese forward bagged 24 goals in 38 appearances last season. Ronaldo has managed just one goal in eight appearances thus far this campaign.
