'Ronaldo Is The Best Goalscorer In History'

'Cristiano Ronaldo Is The Best Goalscorer In History'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Feb 06, 2018 05:30 PM @KurtLaduma

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been one of the most influential footballers in the world over the past decade, has now been referred to as the best goalscorer in the history of the game.

Reports: Barca Want South African Born Star

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has clarified some old quotes of his on the Portuguese international, and explained why he believes the 33-year-old is the beautiful game's most deadly finisher ever.

"I said a couple of years ago that he had peaked physically and a lot of people understood what I was trying to say as: 'He's peaked and that's it, he's about to retire.' I never meant that," Balague told Sky Sports.

"What I meant was he had peaked physically so he had to change his game.

"That's what he's done in the last couple of years. He's become a striker, a No. 9.

"Cristiano has played almost 900 games professionally and he averages 0.7 goals a game.

"For me, he's the best goalscorer in the history of the game.

"He's doing it at a time when everyone is supposed to know his strengths and how to stop him collectively, when everything is studied to the detail.

"Still, he manages to score."

Ronaldo has played 715 games at club level, scoring 544 goals and assisting a further 190 strikes.

In terms of scoring goals CR7 is really the best, he is good in scoring by both feet, by his head and he is good in positioning himself. But what helps him the most is his selfishness, and in most seasons Manchester United and Real Madrid relied a lot to him each and every break they got they look for him.

What expert are people saying they know football. From distance even a blind will see that the man knows nothing about football. A man who has 5 senses and knows Leo Messi and C.Ronaldo will never take or waste time thinking who is the best player between the two. Even a 5 year old boy knows soccer better than this expert. Can this expert walk 500 metres asking Young boys who are 5-6 years asking who the best player in the world is. Even to go ask Ronaldo himself will never lie to you guys. Lets be man enough and talk like really gentlemen
