Real has a new name to add to its historic list of top-scorers. Gento, Pirri, Butragueño and Amancio welcome their best student: Cristiano Ronaldo. Which they have, at a place that’s full of mystique: the Real Madrid dressing room. The Portuguese player is the latest member of the club to become a legend is his own time, making the list of the top ten players who have scored the most goals for the Whites. He’s reached this record like only a forward can, with ambition and the predatory instinct to break all possible records. In fact, Cristiano Ronaldo is the player with the best numbers on the over 110-year old ranking; the bar is set so high that almost half a century has passed before a player with this kind of talent has been seen on the pitch at the Santiago Bernabéu. Only Puskas, who scored 242 goals in 261 matches (an average of 0.93 goals per game), has come even close to the Portuguese international’s numbers.
Cristiano Ronaldo knows that this is a unique, inimitable experience. The Portuguese player has never hidden the passion he’s had for Real since he was a child and he now finds himself on the same list as four historical Real Madrid idols. The smile that never left his face gave him away: “It’s an honor to be one of these legendary scorers and to be one of the top-scorers. To make this list in the short time I’ve been with the club, to see my name associated with these players is a reason to be proud, motivated and happy”. Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t miss any details, checking out the lockers of his “new teammates” and even joked with Gento when he took a look at the ball he used to play in his “La Galerna del Cantábrico” matches. “I scored 300 goals with this ball”, he said. Gento gave a good comeback: “But when it was wet it weighed 100 kilos”!
