- Ferenc Puskas is the second player with 514 goals. He played in Hungry and Spain. He played for two clubs – Budapest Honved and Real Madrid.
- Scotland’s Jimmy McGrory is the next player with 410 league goals. He only played for Celtic. He scored 50 league goals in a season (1935/36).
- Uwe Seeler is the 4th player(till now) with 406 league goals. Like Jimmy McGrory he also played in only one team, Hamburger SV.
Cristiano Ronaldo, currently the 5th player on the list, can easily surpass Jimmy McGrory and Uwe Seeler in this season.
