Real Madrid v Juventus - UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Second Leg
The King of Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo is a name that divides opinions like few others. For some, he is overrated and overhyped; for others, he is one of the best players in the history of mankind.

Whatever be the case, the one thing that can’t be denied that the Portuguese international is one of the most hated stars in the world. There is not a stadium in Europe where he hasn’t been booed or whistled at.

The hate for him is perhaps at an unreal level, but he doesn’t deserve it – and here are 7 reasons why.

#7 Unparalleled consistency

When you talk about Cristiano Ronaldo, you are automatically talking about consistency. It is not even funny how consistent this man is. Over the last two years, he has only had two proper bad patches.

The first one was in the first half of the 2016-17 season – and he ended that season with a Champions League, La Liga, and Ballon d’Or title. The second one was at the beginning of this season – and look at him now with 41 goals from 38 games in all competitions.

Since 2007-08, he has only had two seasons where he couldn’t score 40 or more goals – one of which was an injury-ridden one right after joining Real Madrid. If that isn’t consistency, then nothing could ever be.
