Furthermore, he holds the record for number of assists with 119 in all competitions and has 44 hattricks to his name too.
How many trophies did Cristiano Ronaldo won for Real Madrid?
It’s fair to say that ‘CR7’ also won 16 trophies for Los Blancos and winning many personal accolades too.
He has won four Ballon d’Ors with Real Madrid and won the Golden Boot three times also.
All in all he has won four Champions Leagues, two La Liga titles, two Copa Del Rey titles and two Spanish Super Cups.
Real Madrid will have to find a player of enormous stature and talent to fill the void left by the great Portuguese superstar.
