Telmo Sarah would be happy if Messi beat his record

Sarah has 251 goals between 1940 and 1955 with the team of the Basque club, but there is a break because of World War II. Messi now has 249 and it seems that soon will surpass half a century of achievement of the legend.

Even names like Alfredo di Stefano, Raul Gonzalez, Hugo Sanchez and other great stars, played in La Liga could not reach Sarah, but according to his daughter Carmen, he would have been happy exactly the Argentinian to beat him.

"In our family, we are all huge fans of Athletic and this love is of several generations. Nevertheless, I am sure that if he was alive, my father would be very pleased if Messi exactly improve his record."

"Leo is a great guy, great personality. He has great football skills and his behavior off the field is exemplary. Everyone would love exactly such person to improve his record," said Carmen Sarah to "Catalunya Radio."

If he keeps scoring at the same pace, no wonder Messi to beat Sarah by the end of the month, and certainly "the cherry" for him would be to do it in the derby against Real Madrid in the last weekend of October.
