Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest footballers the world has ever seen. The Portuguese star turns 37 on 5th Feb 2022 and he has had one of the most illustrious and successful careers in world football. Ronaldo has thousands of goal-scoring, team, and individual records to his name.
Recently Cristiano Ronaldo broke the world record for most goals in international football with a brace against the Republic of Ireland on 1 September 2021. The brace took his tally up to 115 international goals. The legendary forward recently also received FIFA’s Special Best award, for becoming the all-time record scorer in men’s international football, But at 37, Ronaldo still looks on top of his game and can certainly break a few more records in the next few years.
Ronaldo eyeing for 100 Premier League
The forward recorded 84 Premier League goals during his first spell with Manchester United. He has recorded eight league goals after his second homecoming taking his tally up to 92 Premier League goals. He has also recorded 311 goals in the LaLiga. The striker is just eight Premier League goals away from becoming the first player to record 100 Premier League and 100 LaLiga goals.
Oldest Premier League golden boot winner
Ronaldo won the Premier League golden boot in the 2008-2009 season. Jamie Vardy currently holds the record for the oldest Premier League golden boot winner. He won the golden boot as a 33-year-old. But Ronaldo looks to have set his eyes on breaking the record held by the English striker.
Oldest Premier League hat-trick
The legendary striker only recorded one hattrick during his first spell with the Premier League outfit. But the striker could break the record and become the oldest player to record a hattrick in the Premier League. The record is currently held by Manchester United legend Teddy Sheringham who, aged 37 years and 146 days, scored a hat-trick in the Premier League.
Ronaldo with most Champions League title record
The Portuguese goal machine currently holds the record for the most Champions League titles. He has lifted five Champions League titles across his career. But he would certainly like to extend his record at the top and take his tally up to six. He lifted his first Champions League trophy during his first spell with Manchester United.
First Manchester United player to lift the Premier League under two different managers
A Premier League title this term seems quite unrealistic. But the United faithful will be hoping to see their club lift the title next term. That would mean that Ronaldo alongside David de Gea and Phil Jones would be the first-ever United players to lift the league title under two different managers.
