Bayer 04 Leverkusen winger Karim Bellarabi has revealed he is delighted to have scored the 50,000th goal in the Bundesliga's history since it began in 1963.
Bellarabi bagged the landmark strike in a 3-1 win over FC Augsburg this past weekend in the league. It is the second honour that the attacking player has achieved in his career – in 2014 he struck the quickest goal in the division's history after nine seconds against Borussia Dortmund (since matched by Kevin Volland).
The 26-year-old has explained why it is an honour for him to have achieved the milestone. He told the Bundesliga's official website: "To be honest, I didn't really expect it. I heard this week that there would be a record, but I didn't really think about it during the game.
"I didn't know at half-time, either and only really realised after the game. Of course, though, I'm really happy about it; it's very special."
