With the level of commitment Christiano Ronaldo shows at Real Madrid, it is quite disheartening that they ended up such a brilliant season for him; empty handed. If the truth is to be said, Ronaldo’s brilliance on the pitch deserved much reward than Real Madrid got him. It is difficult to imagine that in a season where he broke so many records and was the top goal scorer in almost every competition he played in, he has no medal to show for it. He has developed into a complete player who creates chances, assists and scores goals but his career at Real Madrid is not so trophy laden. Lionel Messi, the only player who can be compared to him enjoys a better spell in terms of winners medals at Barcelona than Ronaldo at Real Madrid. They however have almost the same number of career accolades.

I am not however suggesting that he should leave Real Madrid. No! What I think has to be done is that Real Madrid should develop a philosophy of football they want to follow and hire coaches and buy players who fit into that philosophy. They have to help arguably the greatest player in football history to get the accolades he deserves. Ronaldo is a hard worker and he has to be rewarded for his hard work. He is in truth Madrid’s best legend and he will need more trophies to go with that. There is work to be done before he begins to feel his age and the summer is certainly the time to begin that.

  1. Ronaldo’s problem is that he pretty much preys on the weak teams (Granada, Getafe, etc) and vanishes when Real plays the big teams (Atletico, Bayern, etc), therefore he has hundreds of goals but little collective trophies.

  2. He scores lots of goals, and does very little else. He is NEVER compared to Maradona or Pele. Do you not ask yourself why..??

  3. I can’t remember a game against Barcelona where Ronaldo hasn’t scored and he led the league, just after Messi in assists this year, that’s doing nothing but scoring goals?

  4. “He has developed into a complete player who creates chances, assists and scores goals but his career at Real Madrid is not so trophy laden. Lionel Messi, the only player who can be compared to him”
    hmmm some like to write bullshit I guess

  5. Problem is the philosophy of Real Madrid, well documented by the author of this article who allows his love for the team and the player concerned to cloud his judgement, it is very clear that the entire Real Madrid game-plan is, for the rest of the team to play for Ronaldo, hence the reason huge amount of goals but very little silverware. Football is a team sport, if Ronaldo was a tennis player he probably would have been one of the best ever but the fact that football applies a lot of technical and tactical dynamics which Ronaldo and Real Madrid fall too short on, the problems will persist until a whole shift in Real Madrid’s philosophy is drastically re-adjusted ,to allow the club to play as a team and for Ronaldo to play for the team and not for himself.

  6. Come back home cr7 be part of that team that helped you be the player you are today and never be a 1 man team anymore come back prodigal son !!!!
