Peter Crouch Writes Hilarious Message About Alan Shearer's Goal Record

Peter Crouch Writes Hilarious Message About Alan Shearer's Goal Record

Peter Crouch never fails to deliver on social media and his latest Tweet could quite possibly be his best yet.

The Stoke City striker, 36, was asked by a fan on Twitter about how more seasons it will take him to break Alan Shearer's Premier League goalscoring record.

The former Newcastle and Blackburn man is far and away in the goalscoring ranks on 260, and it's a regular debate down the pub about whether it will ever be beaten.

Crouch has amassed 103 top flight goals in his time playing for Aston Villa, Southampton, Liverpool, Portsmouth, Tottenham and Stoke, and celebrated joining the one-hundred club by performing his signature 'robot' move after scoring against Everton in February.

But the former England international reckons he might have to play until 65 if he is to be in with a shout of ousting Shearer.

Fans on Twitter were loving another slice of the 6 foot 7 striker's banter:

The good news for Crouchy, but maybe not the rest of the UK in his age frame, is that people of his birth year will have to work until they are 68 before they retire because of a government change.

That means he's got a few more years to knock Shearer of his perch. But the reality is, of course, that big Pete will most likely call it quits in the next couple of seasons.

Whenever he chooses to pack football in though, he will have broken one record previously held by Shearer as he has scored the most headed goals in Premier League history.
