The year 2018 is already part of the past for the Portuguese ace who may have a memorable year in 2019.
The Portuguese ace has already solidified the status at Juventus and looks to the new year with the same ambition as always: to win titles and break records.
Although he has already stressed that the individual titles do not tell him much, Ronaldo knows that to be the best in history will have to achieve what nobody has so far.
For that reason, the Spaniards of the AS have set some goals that Ronaldo can meet this year and that will give him an even more important place in the history of football.
First, the Portuguese striker could become the first player to be top scorer in three of the top five European leagues (Serie A, Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Ligue 1). Already the king of the goal in the Premier League and La Liga and this season is well launched to validate the status in Serie A. He is currently leading the scorers in Italy with 14 goals scored, followed by striking Piatek, Polish forward Genoa.
So far, Ronaldo has shared the status of a scorer in two championships with a limited number of incontrovertible figures: Cavani, Ibrahimovic, Dzeko, Toni, Vieri, and Luis Suárez. But remember, no one has ever managed to be three. For Ronaldo is missing half season.
But there is more. If Juventus can revalidate the title of national champion, Ronaldo could become the first player in Serie A history to be champion and scorer of the race in his debut season. In addition, he will also be able to win the title of champion in three of the top five European leagues.
Last but not least, there is the Champions League, a competition for which Cristiano Ronaldo does not hide his admiration. If he can win the event, he will rise to six times as he has managed to lift the trophy and match Paco Gento as the most European Cup / Champions League player to win in history. And, of course, he would enter a restricted batch of players, consisting only of Seedorf and Eto’o, who managed to win the Champions League for three different teams.
