Every time Leo Messi plays, there are headlines. On Sunday against Athletic Club the Argentine reached the figure of 500 goals for the Barça first team wearing his famous number 10 shirt. He has scored another eight goals in the 30 shirt and 34 with the number 19 shirt for FC Barcelona. 

The number 10 since 2008 

Lionel Messi inherited the number 10 shirt in 2008 from no less than Ronaldinho. Since then he has spent the last nine and a half seasons racking up goals with an average of 50 a season at the moment wearing the famous number. 

It is not Messi's first '500'. On 23 April last season, he reached the figure for goals with the first team in the Clásico in the Santiago Bernabéu against Real Madrid.
