Champions League: goodbye or see you soon with Ronaldo, "Mr. Champion" - Sports

With his succession to Manchester United at the age of 37 (he will turn 38 next February) Ronaldo may have said goodbye or maybe just ‘see you soon’ to Europe’s biggest club competition after being my biggest the protagonist, along with the Argentinean Lionel Messi, almost from the beginning of the century.

You have to go back to 2002/03 to find a Champions edition without the Portuguese present, even though he played in the qualifying rounds that season while still in the service of Sporting.

It will be strange for any football fan, whether a supporter and supporter of Ronaldo or more “pro-Messi”, to start or hear for the first time this season the already legendary “Champions” anthem, knowing that Cristiano Ronaldo will not be in any of the 32 teams that will come out on the field.

In fact, there are generations of fans who are now 15, 20, 30 years old who don’t even know what it’s like to have a Champions League edition without Ronaldo on the field, which will certainly be a very strange feeling. for the millions who follow the competition every year.

There have been or are currently 183 games and 140 goals, numbers that make Ronaldo the player with the most appearances and goals in Champions history, in addition to five trophies won, four with Real Madrid and one. with Manchester United (2007/08 with the Red Devils and 2013/14, 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18 with the Spaniards).

In terms of goals, 21 for Manchester United, 105 for Real Madrid and 14 for Juventus, the team with which he failed to win his long-awaited and historic sixth “championship title”.

In total, Ronaldo has one “poker” and eight “hat-tricks” in Champions matches, and is also the only player to score in all group stage games in one season.

It all started in October 2003, at the age of 18 years and 238 days, with a 2-1 loss to Manchester United in Stuttgart, but it took almost four years and 26 games to score his first goal and then the encore. ” in the same game, in the defeat of the English against Roma (7-1) at Old Trafford.

The future is always uncertain and Ronaldo’s return to the Champions could happen before he hangs up his boots, but for now the “books” indicate that his last goal of 140 was against Villarreal on November 23, 2021 , and the last game took place. March 15 this year at Old Trafford in the match against Atlético Madrid in the 1/8 finals.
