Lionel Messi just added his name to this list of legends who have scored over 500 goals for a single club. This did not happen in any match but in an El clasico. Messi scored a brace which saw FC Barcelona beat Real Madrid 2-3 in the Bernabeu. But since this post is not about Messi lets dive in and see the other legends who scored over 500 goals for one club.
#8 Uwe Seeler (Harmburg) – 507 goals
#7 Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona) – 507 goals
Messi has had an incredible performance in FC Barcelona, having 583 appearances, 194 assists and 507 goals. Messi has also equaled Uwe Seeler and any goal will see him surpass
#6 Jimmy Jones (Glenavon) – 517 goals
#5 Jimmy McGory (Celtic) – 522 goals
#4 Josef Bican (Slavia Prague) – 534 goals
#3 Fernando Peyroteo(Sporting) scored 544 goals
#2 Gerd Muller (Bayern Munich) scored 566 goals
#1 Abedi Pele (Santos) scored over 500 goals- 643 goals scored
At Lionel Messi’s current age and given that he is rarely out of form, it is very possible that if he stays at FC Barcelona he will beat even Abedi Pele’s record. Just this season he scored over 50 goals. imagine he plays like this or better for the next two seasons…drop your comments and let us know what you think about this list.
