Alan Shearer makes top 10 of greatest ever European club goalscorers

6 years ago

Alan Shearer makes the top ten of greatest goalscorers of all time in the major European leagues.

Taking the English, Spanish, German, French and  Italian leagues, Shearer has scored the eighth highest number of league goals for his clubs (Newcastle, Southampton, Blackburn).

The Newcastle legend was in seventh position with his 283 goals, only for Cristiano Ronaldo to recently ease past him.

However, Shearer is still a few ahead of Lionel Messi who currently lags 26 goals behind the Geordie striker.

Some great names are in this list but in the modern era, it is only really greats like Ronaldo, Raul and Messi who are in the same company.

Thanks to the excellent @MisterChiping Twitter account for the stats.
