The 35-year-old netted his 760th career goal against Napoli on Wednesday night, overtaking the tally of previous record holder Josef Bican according to statistics experts such as Alexis Martin-Tamayo, better known as Mr Chip or Squawka.

However, the Czech Football Association have since released a statement, saying Bican did in fact score 821 and not just 759 during his career.

"The answer is - Josef Bican scored 821 goals in official matches," the statement read.

Check out the top scorers in football history below:

"Goals from matches in the first and second leagues, national cups, the Central European Cup and national team selections are included. On the contrary, friendly matches are not included in the statistics, with the exception of the national team.

"It can be stated with full seriousness that this is a number that corresponds to the current state of the possibility of verifying all data, so it is the most accurate number possible."
