Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 53rd goal of the year in the Saudi Pro League match between Al-Nassr and Al-Ittihad on Tuesday, making him the season’s top scorer.
In a month, Ronaldo will turn 39 years old. He has already scored more goals this year than Harry Kane, Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland. This shows that age is just a number.
Ronaldo only scored 16 goals in 2022 because he had a hard time getting regular playing time with Manchester United because their coach Erik Ten Hag didn’t like him. But the five-time Ballon d’Or winner made an amazing comeback, which is what he does best, and scored the most goals in 2023.
In 2023, Cristiano Ronaldo played in 58 games.
– 53 goals
– 15 assists
Al-Nassr beat Al-Ittihad 5-2 thanks to two goals each from Ronaldo and Sadio Mane, as well as a goal from Talisca. Luis Castro’s team kept the pressure on the league leaders, Al-Hilal.
Both Mbappe and Kane have played their last games of 2023, so they can’t pass Ronaldo. On the other hand, Ronaldo’s last game of the year will be on December 30 against Al-Taawoun.
Manchester City will play Everton on Wednesday and Sheffield United on December 30. Erling Haaland, on the other hand, is expected to play in two games this year.
In 2023, Cristiano Ronaldo scored 53 goals for both his club and his country.
52 goals from Harry Kane
Kylian Mbappe has scored 52 goals.
Erling Haaland scored 50 goals.
It’s important to remember that Ronaldo has played for some of the world’s best teams, like Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus. There, he made history and quickly became a hero.
Ronaldo played 438 games for Real Madrid and scored 450 goals, which is a record that is expected to stay unbroken. He also set up 131 goals.
During his two stints with Man United, the forward scored 145 goals and set up 64 others.
During his 21-year career, Ronaldo also won the UEFA Champions League many times and the Ballon d’Or five times, which is the top individual award in football.
