You know this statement can only come from a legend. Any other (young) footballer who tries this will face the wrath of football pundits. Retired Italian footballer, Filippo Inzaghi while speaking with sport Journalists has claimed that no one, not even world best footballers, C Ronaldo or Lionel Messi can match his goalscoring record in cup finals. 

The 40-year-old who retired last year July after spending 21-years in the world of the round leather isn't babbling, he has some facts to back his claim up. ""Five goals in three finals, which were three of the most important finals and we won all of them. Not even Messi or Ronaldo will achieve that. It's a record I will hang on to." He asserted. 

Inzaghi netted eight goals in the finals throughout his career at Juventus and the Rossoneri. He now trains young footballers at AC Milan, he also wants to retire there. "Carlo Ancelotti was uncertain whether or not to play me or Alberto Gilardino in the Athens final, but I played and scored twice, then I scored in the Super Cup final win over Sevilla and another two against Boca Juniors." He recalled.
