Cristiano Ronaldo's Career

Cristiano Ronaldo’s career and achievements are described as unmatched by many authorities. Ronaldo has won 29 trophies so far, including 6 league cups, 5 Champions League cups, 1 European Cup, and 1 Nations League. The star player, who started his career in Portugal’s Sporting Lisbon club, the country where he was born, managed to attract the attention of big clubs in a short time. Accordingly, in 2003, he added the English giant Manchester United to his staff. The Portuguese star, who had a successful performance here for many years, made his way to the Spanish giant Real Madrid in 2009.

Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Records

Cristiano Ronaldo did not leave an unbroken record in Real Madrid, to which he transferred in 2009. Some of these Ronaldo’s Real Madrid records can be listed as follows:

  • Top scorer in Madrid derbies (21 goals)
  • Fastest hat-trick in the UEFA Champions League (11 minutes) for Real Madrid
  • Top scorer in Real Madrid history (523 goals)
  • The first player to score 50 and 100 goals for Real Madrid
  • The first player to score 50 goals or more for Real Madrid in six consecutive seasons

It seems very difficult to equalize the records that Ronaldo broke in his club career.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Style of Play

Great football players have their own style of play. In this respect, it is necessary to talk about Cristiano Ronaldo’s style of play. Starting his career as a winger, Ronaldo excelled at speed and easily overtook his opponents. Some time after starting his career, he developed a unique free-kick technique.

Later in his career, Ronaldo began acting as a striker rather than a winger. His head goals and magnificent reverse shots, which he scored by jumping very high, showed that he is a good football player in the truest sense of the word.
