Lionel Messi’s Goal Collection in the Next 10 Years
Have you ever wonder how much goal Messi will score in the next 10 years of his football career ? With his perfect condition, no doubt Messi will be able to play at least until he is 35 years of age.
Let’s see …. So far, Messi already collects 252 goals in total of 327 performance with Barcelona in all competition. With his national team Argentina, Messi has collected 22 goals in 68 games.
Of course, when it comes to goal collection, Pep Guardiola was the man behind his success in the last 4 years. During the Guardiola era, Messi has scored 210 goals alone in 216 matches. This season, Messi’s performance even considered phenomenal.
In the first year with Pep, Messi’s goal statistic only 0,75 goal per match, compare to this season 1,24 goal per match.
However, since Pep is now out of the picture, and replaced by Tito Vilanova, Messi’s goal is predicted to be stagnant of 50 goals per season. To sum up, in the next 10 years, Messi could reach an extra 500 goals, (more or less) or 776 goals in total. If it happens, then Messi can finally surpasses Pele’s goal record.
Until now, Pele did have scored around 1000 goals in all his football career, but he only collected 760 max in an official matches.
