10 Football Facts That Sound Fake But Are Real

Football over the past years has produced some incredible facts and stats, both incredible and worse. Each season, there’s a new record to be broken or to be set. Here’s a list of just ten records that sound fake but are real;


1.Tom Starke has more trophies than games played at Bayern. He played only 12 games and won 15 trophies.

2.Peter Crouch has more Premier League assists than Paul Scholes. Well, you can say one was a striker and the other was a deep lying midfielder but fact is fact.

3.Neymar won the LaLiga POTM award before Messi. Explained; LaLiga introduced the POTM Award in the 2013/14 season and Neymar won it before Messi did. Reasonable right?

4.Jose Mourinho didn’t lose a home game for nine(9) years. Yes! 9 years! Well, not consecutively but all teams managed in that period.

5.Aston Villa has a bigger stadium capacity than Juventus; by around 1,250. Suprised?

6.James Milner has the record for the most assists in a single UCL Season. He got 9 in the 2017/18 season. Not bad.

7.Chelsea rejected Mbappe when he was 13. Reason? “He Couldn’t Defend”

8.Adam Johnson has more Premier League POTM Awards than Didier Drogba.

9.John Terry has more goals for Chelsea than Iniesta has for Barca. Terry bagged 41 goals while Iniesta managed 35.

10.Messi has a bigger feet than Ronaldo despite being 6 inches shorter.
