Why Cristiano Ronaldo is a Real Madrid Failure
- Written by Darren Douglas
Let's start with the elephant in the room, and immediately address the incredible goal-scoring record of Ronaldo at Real Madrid. I scoured various sources for the official statistics and found it difficult to find 2 exact matches, but the eventual consensus was that in 344 appearances, Ronaldo has scored 360 goals! Needless to say this is a phenomenal record, one that puts him above any other player in the history of the club, and you have to imagine that without him in the team, Los Merengues would never have matched that volume of goals over the last 7 years. Yet despite this achievement, I think it's fair to say that, so far, Ronaldo's time at Real Madrid has been a failure.
