Serie A

Cristiano Ronaldo breaks new record that even Lionel Messi will never achieve in his career (PHOTOS)

For many times, there has been that salient argument about who actually is the better football player between both Cristiano Ronaldo & Lionel Messi. And interestingly, each time the debate comes up it has often been the Juventus superstar player having the edge, considering his combined stats for club & country. Though the Messi fanatics might not want to admit it in public, but in their private corners they sure know that the Portuguese legend Ronaldo is the real deal with overall achievements.

But yet again, CR7 isn't slowing down anytime soon regarding conquering new heights, as he just smashed another massive record in the Italian Serie A league!

Now with Juventus Football Club, Cristiano Ronaldo has now achieved a massive feat of scoring 50+ goals (in 60 games) in the Italian Serie A league - after his latest heroics against Lazio. In the dramatic game, the charismatic forward scored 2 goals to take his tally for the current season to an incredible 30 goals, thus becoming the top scorer in the league!

And an excited Ronaldo shares his positive feeling after the game with a congratulatory note to his teammates. He tweeted: "A very important victory! We’re almost there guys! Let’s go 💪🏼💪🏼 #FinoAllaFine #forzajuve"

It must be said, that the new goals tally now has made Cristiano Ronaldo aka CR7 the ONLY player ever to score 50+ goals in 3 different top leagues in Europe - the Italian Serie A, Spanish La Liga, and English Premier League. And observers have duly noted, that the prime feat is one that his supposed rival Lionel Messi will never achieve in his football career, simply because he is stubbornly stuck with one club, FC Barcelona.

But for Cristiano Ronaldo, even at the age of 35, the phenomenon tagged CR7 is never sowing down anytime soon in smashing of soccer records!

Looking at the goals chart currently in the Serie A, Ronaldo leads with 30 goals with less games played at this time (30). And inevitably Juventus are on their way to another league title, well deserved!

In my own candid opinion, regardless of the fact that there are still a few games to go before the end of the current Italian league campaign, there's no doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo is worthy as the Greatest Footballer of this Generation! Considering what this humble man has achieved - at the highest level of football showcase, from club to club, with the Portugal national team - there is no doubt that CR7 is the G.O.A.T of this generation.

Even in all of these, one thing that is purely certain is the undiluted desire of Cristiano Ronaldo to achieving more success on the football pitch. And in the voice of Nigerian ace comedian 'Mr Macaroni', "Even at age 35, CR7 is doing well, Oooiinn!!"
