Barcelona star Lionel Messi has been revealed as the player who has played the most minutes for any one club in La Liga over the past decade.
A weekly post from the CIES Football Observatory has revealed that the Argentine superstar has played a total of 340 league matches for the Blaugrana over the course of the past decade – averaging out at 34 matches per season.
That equates to a total of 28,267 minutes on the pitch – more than any other player in the Spanish top flight for any one club, the fifth highest in the world and the second most in Europe – behind only Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke Resurrección is next on the list with a total of 330 matches for the club in the league in that timeframe.
The Spain international has featured in 26,223 minutes in that decade at Atleti.
