Currently confined to Funchal on the island of Madeira, Cristiano Ronaldo is experiencing the first forced break of his long and beautiful career.
Since its big debut with the pros in 2002 in the Sporting CP jersey, CR7 has never experienced such a situation. Absent from the field for a month, and Juventus’ victory against Inter in Serie A (2-0), Cristiano Ronaldo has very rarely been on the sidelines for so long in the past 15 years. Proof of flawless longevity.
Especially that everywhere he went, whether at Manchester United (2003-2009), Real Madrid (2009-2018) or now in Turin, the Portuguese international has always made a lasting impression by scoring a lot of goals and winning many trophies.
Despite all this, the 35-year-old player is not completely unanimous with his former teammates, including the Red Devils.
Indeed, according to Ryan Giggs, Cristiano Ronaldois not one of the eleven legends of Manchester United. Since for the current Wales coach, players like David Beckham, Wayne Rooney or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deserve their place on the standard team in the history of Manchester United more than CR7.
An opinion that will not necessarily be shared in England, where Cristiano has still scored 118 goals in 292 games, with successes in the Premier League (2007, 2008, 2009) or in the Champions League (2008).
