Delio Onnis is Ligue 1’s all-time top scorer with a staggering 299 goals in 449 games for AS Monaco, Reims, Tours and Toulon between 1972 and 1986, averaging 0.67 goals per game.
Despite of this, Onnis never made an international appearance for the country of his birth, Italy, or his native Argentina, as the national manager preferred players from the Argentinian domestic leagues such as Mario Kempes.
Onnis started his Ligue 1 career at Reims, scoring 39 in 65 matches, before transferring to AS Monaco, firing in 187 in 232 matches, with 30 of these coming in 32 Division 2 matches during the 1976/77 season as they earned promotion back to Division One following relegation. Monaco would then win Division One the following year as Onnis scored 29 in 35.
The only other trophy that Onnis won in France came in 1979/80 in the shape of the Coupe de France, of which he also achieved this in his last season at Monaco before transferring to Tours, where he would go on to fire in 64 goals in 110, leaving them when they were relegated in 1982/83.
Onnis would spend the final three years of his career with Toulon in Division One, adding a further 39 goals to his tally in 74 games, ending a remarkable career.
