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.
