Lionel Messi broke Pele’s record of 634 goals for a single club during his side’s 3-0 win over Real Valladolid on Tuesday.
Messi has been the kingpin of Barcelona for 19 years but during the offseason was linked with a move away from the Catalan giants. After agreeing to stay for one more season, the rumours have not died down prompting Ronald Koeman to try calm the fears of his club’s fans..
“I’ve said it a lot,” Barca head coach Koeman said.
“I see Leo happy here. He’s very important for us with his creativity. You can see that when there are good players alongside him.”
Fifth-placed Barcelona are now eight points off the pace of La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid.
Barcelona host struggling Eibar on 29 December.
