Footbal stats – the most goals in top5 European leagues

Footbal stats – the most goals in top5 European leagues

In 2017 I decided to check who’s the best goal scoring machine in European football.

I know that some players like Lionel Messi (Spanish La Liga), Alan Shearer (English Premier League), Gerd Müller (German Bundesliga), Francesco Totti (Italian Serie A) and Delio Onnis (French Ligue 1) are best goalscorers in those leagues’ history. But are they really the best one? They are kings of only one specific league. They didn’t confront their skills in diffrent league.

It is completely natural situation for best strikers that when you are effective in the penalty area in one good league (IT, DE, ES, EN, FR), you need more challenges. That’s why you take the risk and leave the team, where you are treated like a king. You change the league to improve your skills. When you adapt easily to new different conditions and still score goals it means your shooting instinct has passed the exam. It’s the only way to shut the critics’ mouths.

In my opinion the players who keep scoring goals with such frequency at least in 2 from TOP 5 European leagues should be considered as the best strikers in football history. Scoring so many goals in the most difficult European leagues is extremely hard, that’s why it needs media and fans’ respect.

You can find below the list of all football playes who scored 100+ goals in at least 2 from 5 best European leagues
