Messi makes another La Liga history

Josep Maria Bartomeu

El Clasico could not have been timed worse for Real Madrid.

Messi, who made his Blaugrana debut in in 2004, has won nine league titles with Barcelona and the insane stat from Miguel Delaney further underlines what he has achieved with the club.

The Argentinian wizard's speed of thought and feet around the box helped him to yet another hat-trick - the 46th of his career.

"We have been a competitive, compact team and we have overcome many difficulties, and in moments I know it has lacked brilliance".

The three goals on Sunday allowed Messi to take the lead in the Golden Boot race, surpassing the 31 goals scored by Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah in the Premier League.

Syria war: 'Iranian personnel among dozens dead' in missile attacks
Israel has cited Iran's hostile rhetoric, support for anti-Israel militant groups and development of long-range missiles. The Tasnim news agency quoted an unnamed Iranian informed official in its report but did not elaborate on the denial.

The Leo Messi-inspired Catalan giants sealed the Spanish title with a 4-2 win over Deportivo last night, condemning the hosts to relegation at the Riazor.

"It was a very special title for all of us because we are yet to lose any matches".

The former Athletic Bilbao coach said: "I have not invented anything, in the end these players have already won titles and leagues with other coaches".

La Liga's top scorer praised his side for remaining unbeaten in the league although he lamented the one black mark of their campaign, their shock elimination from the Champions League after losing a quarter-final second leg 3-0 to AS Roma.

It was the ninth league title for Messi, allowing him to surpass the record he shared with Xavi Hernandez. "He's managed the dressing room perfectly".

'Confused' Wenger to take a month off after Arsenal exit
Both Mourinho and Ferguson also recognize what Wenger has done for the Premier League, and for English football as a whole. Old Trafford has been the bane of Arsene Wenger's existence for much of his 22 years at the helm of Arsenal Football Club.

The jubilant side took to the Catalonia streets on Monday to enjoy their incredible achievement, as well as honor their outgoing captain Andres Iniesta, who has confirmed that this season will be his last with La Blaugrana.

This wasn't Barca's only big win of the season, but it may well have been their most impressive.

Barcelona is celebrating yet another Spanish league title to cap a almost ideal season. The fans have launched songs to remember their arch rival Real Madrid who is competing in the Champions League.

Suarez struck twice to set Barca on course for the win and Messi's free-kick made the result safe five minutes from time, as the visitors moved 19 points ahead of Real Madrid and nine clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid.
