Van Nistelrooy enjoyed successful spells at PSV, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Hamburg

Ruud Van Nistelrooy is one of the best goalscorers to have ever played. The prolific Dutchman has played for some of the world’s biggest clubs such as PSV, Machester United and Real Madrid. 

Van Nistelrooy has scored an astonishing 347 goals in 589 appearances winning some major honours along the way. The Dutch striker has won the league title in Netherlands, England and Spain making him one of the very few players to win the league in three different countries.

Although Van Nistelrooy has an amazing goalscoring record, he was sometimes dropped by Alex Ferguson at Manchester United because the legendary manager felt that he did not contribute enough in the other areas of the pitch,

Whatever the reasons, no one can argue with Nistelrooy’s positioning sense and finishing skills which made him one of the most lethal finishers in the game.
