After winning 48 goals in 35 Spanish league games last season, Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo won his third Golden Boot with Real Madrid. He recently won a record fourth Golden Boot as the top scorer in Europe’s domestic leagues last season but the 30-year-old Portuguese striker has said he felt no satisfaction.
“It’s a special moment. But I’m not satisfied, I always want more. I know I’m the only one to have won four Boots but I want more, I want the fifth and sixth if possible,” he was quoted as saying.
Ronaldo won the Ballon d’Or title for the top European footballer for the past two years but Messi guided Barcelona to the triple of La Liga, Copa Del Rey and Champions league titles.
“Obviously (winning a new Golden Boot) implies also winning things collectively, trophies with the team,” said Ronaldo, whose side failed to win a major trophy last season.
“Real Madrid is a team that must win titles every year. This season it’s the same, we want to win the championship, the Champions League if possible, and the Cup.”
Two weeks ago Ronaldo scored his 500th career goal and then equalled Raul’s club record tally of 323 goals for Real Madrid.
