Juventus president Andrea Agnelli present Cristiano Ronaldo with a special commemorative shirt for breaking Brazil legend Pele’s official goalscoring record of 767 goals.
It comes after Ronaldo was named the Serie A player of the year on Friday for the second consecutive time. There’s no player in the world who hasn’t been raised listening to stories about his games, his goals and his achievements, and I’m no exception.
Before the Old Lady’s Serie A fixture with Benevento on Sunday March 21, which they lost 1 – 0 at home, Ronaldo was handed a shirt with ‘G.O.A.T 770’ on the back, claiming that the Portuguese forward is the ‘Greatest Of All Time’.
Ronaldo has 118 Manchester United goals to his name and has netted 95 goals for Juve.The five-time Ballon d’Or winner also has five career goals for Sporting CP not to mention 102 goals for Portugal.
He also scored 50 for Real Madrid. Though FIFA does not keep an official record of football’s all-time leading scorers, but Ronaldo claimed the title himself.
He’s closing in on Ali Daei’s record of 109 goals – the most ever in men’s international football.
