Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken about his new individual milestone of 700 club goals. The Portuguese striker reached a new benchmark when Erik ten Hag’s side faced the Toffees at Goodison Park.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal helped his side win the match after they got an equalizer from newly-signed Brazilian Winger Antony. Ronaldo’s Former Real Madrid teammate Casemiro assisted him in his peak goal.
The 37-year-old striker has scored only twice under new coach Erik ten Hag. His first goal of the season came against FC Sheriff in UEFA Europa League. And he suffered from severe criticism reading his only goal of the season being a penalty kick.
Under the new manager, the 37-year-old has got to start only once in the English Premier League. Erik ten Hag gives more chances to young players in all the departments. Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Antony are in attack, Fred and Scott McTominay in midfield while Diogo Dalot and Lisandro Martinez in the defence.
While veteran Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t getting any commendable support from the former Ajax manager. But we hope that the goal gives more strength and form to the former Real Madrid striker.
What does Cristiano Ronaldo tweet after the milestone?
“𝟕𝟎𝟎 𝐜𝐥𝐮𝐛 𝐠𝐨𝐚𝐥𝐬. What a beautiful number we’ve achieved together! Thank you to all my teammates, coaches, clubs, family & friends and of course my fans. United we continue!” Cristiano Ronaldo tweeted.
