Scorers of 3000th, 4000th and 5000th goals meet up


Camp Nou saw an exceptional meeting of Quini, Amor and Messi who scored Barça’s 3000th, 4000th and 5000th League goals respectively.

Quini’s presence as delegate and manager for the day of Sporting Gijon meant it was the ideal chance to arrange for the three players to meet up.

Ideal situation

The event was arranged by Barça TV and www.fcbarcelona.cat as, whether by luck or fate, Messi had scored the 5000th goal just before Sporting came to call after ten years in the Second Division.

The legendary strikers

Three generations of players

The three come from different generations – Quini is 59, Amor 41 and Messi 21 – but still had lots to talk about because in spite of their age difference, they share the same passion and history of football and goals for Barça.

Shared goal

Messi’s goal is the only one to have been ‘shared’, as when Quini made it 3000 Messi hadn’t been born and Amor at 14 was just starting out and could hardly imagine he’d do the same as Quini fourteen years after 1982. And when Amor scored number 4000 Messi was still in Argentina with little thought of becoming a Barça player.

Warm welcome for Quini
The reception began in the tunnel before the match when Xavi and Carles Puyol warmly welcomed Quini.

Then out on the Camp Nou pitch Guardiola was quick to greet his opposite number for the day and Quini waved to the crowd as the fans gave him a rousing ovation.
