Cristiano Ronaldo thanked “players, coaches and loyal opponents” after the Juventus star scored the 750th goal of his remarkable career.
Ronaldo reached the milestone with a simple finish 57 minutes into Juve’s 3-0 win over Dynamo Kiev in their Champions League Group G clash on Wednesday.
It was his 75th across all competitions for Juventus after his 2018 move from Real Madrid – where he scored 450 goals.
The 35-year-old, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, reached that mammoth total for Madrid in just 438 matches across all competitions, following his then world-record move from Manchester United in 2009.
During his six-year stint at Old Trafford, he scored 118 times for the Red Devils.
Ronaldo, who recently surpassed the 100-goal mark for Portugal, becoming only the second male footballer to reach a century at international level after Iran’s Ali Daei. He is also Madrid’s all-time leading scorer, with 127 more goals than Los Blancos legend Raul, whose haul came from 741 appearances.
Following his landmark achievement, Ronaldo used his official Twitter account to thank not only his team-mates and coaches – he has worked under the likes of Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti and Zinedine Zidane – but also his opponents.
“750 goals, 750 happy moments, 750 smiles in the faces of our supporters,” he wrote.
