Lionel Messi scored his 643rd goal for Barcelona on Saturday to equal Pele�s record of goals for a single club as the Spanish giants were held 2-2 by Valencia.
Messi, 33, headed in from Jordi Alba�s cross after his first-half penalty was saved to equal the mark set by the Brazilian great for Santos.
�These figures are impressive, we will never have a player so effective at this club,� admitted coach Ronald Koeman.
�That�s why he is the No.1. What he�s done for this club, it is impressive.�
But Messi was eventually left frustrated on Saturday as a dogged Valencia forced a draw to leave Barcelona eight points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, who beat Elche 3-1 earlier in the day.
�There were times tonight with good football, we had total control of the match, especially after leading 2-1 where we tried to get the third, but there were also times when we lost the ball in the danger zones,� added Koeman.
�What worries me is that sometimes the team doesn�t know what the game is about.
�We know we�re a team that always likes to attack and score goals, but there are also times when you have to defend and control the game.
