10 unbelievable records set by Cristiano Ronaldo this decade (2010-2019)
- We take a look at ten of the many phenomenal records set by Cristiano Ronaldo this decade.
#3 Only player to score 50+ goals for six consecutive seasons
Ronaldo has long cemented his status as one of football's greatest ever goalscorers with efficiency and consistency that is unmatched by any player except perhaps Messi.
The 34-year-old has proven this fact by becoming the only player in history to have scored at least 50 goals in six consecutive seasons for a club. He netted more than 50 goals in all competitions for Real Madrid between 2010 and 2016 and has since seen no competitors for the record.
The closest any player came to equalling the record was Messi who managed to score at least 50 goals in three consecutive seasons for Barcelona.
Seasons during which Ronaldo scored at least 50 goals:
2010/11: 54 appearances, 53 goals
2011/12: 55 appearances, 60 goals
2012/13: 55 appearances, 55 goals
2013/14: 47 appearances, 51 goals
2014/15: 54 appearances, 61 goals
2015/16: 48 appearances, 51 goals
#4 The first player in history to win the Premier League, La Liga, and Serie A
While Ronaldo's debut Serie A campaign has been deemed underwhelming by his standards, it could also be considered successful for a host of other reasons. Not only did he help Juventus to an eighth consecutive Scudetto but the victory made him the first player ever to win league titles in three of Europe's top five leagues.
The Portugal international won three Premier League titles during his time with Manchester United (2006-07 to 2008-09), two La Liga titles during his nine-year spell with Real Madrid (2011-12 and 2016-17) and one Serie A crown in his debut season with Juventus (2018-19).Published 28 Dec 2019, 12:36 IST
