Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid to join Juventus after a trophy-laden spell at the Bernabeu
The 33-year-old won almost everything during his time with Real Madrid. Most notable ones include the Ballon d’Or 4 times and Champions league as many times. Not only that Cristiano Ronaldo is also the Los Blancos’ all-time top-scorer with 450 goals in just 438 games. Earlier this summer, Ronaldo decided to take on a new challenge as he joined Juventus in a deal worth 105 million pounds. And Ronaldo seems to be back to his best after a slightly sluggish start by his standards.
He has already scored 7 goals and set up another 6 in 13 appearances for Juventus. Manchester United starlet Marcus Rashford is flabbergasted by the former United No. 7. “The thing that is a massive eye-opener for me now is I remember when he first came his talent was arguably one of the biggest talents that we’ve seen at United for a long time; to have him and Wayne [Rooney] in the same team was amazing when you look back. But the way he’s sustained his career and even improved year on year is just amazing,” Rashford told Manchester United’s official website.
“People don’t do that at his age, people are usually heading towards the end of their career and their level starts going down a little bit, but he’s just gone up and up and up.
For me, there is no bigger inspiration in football. I could speak for a lot of young players and United fans that watched the team when he was here and the majority of us have followed him as he’s moved on in his career and that’s what’s special about United. Once you play for this club you become part of this family even if you move on. There is always something that remains in your heart, you could see that when he returned [to Old Trafford] from our fans.
When you play against a player like that you have to respect his qualities but at the same time you have to play your game and you can’t show fear to that type of player.”
Cristiano Ronaldo is an absolute machine and we have all known it for quite some time now. He is still breaking and setting records at an age where most forwards seek alternate occupations.
