Ronaldo Continues To Make History

Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo received his record fourth Golden Boot award on Tuesday for being the leading goalscorer in all of Europe's domestic leagues last season.

He netted 48 goals in 35 games to reach his third golden boot with Los Blancos, after winning one with Manchester United in 2007-08.
 
The 30-year-old who became Madrid’s all-time leading scorer in September with 324 goals, overtaking Raúl, said: "This is another great moment in my career. Receiving the fourth Golden Shoe is a great honour and a privilege. But without my team-mates, I would not be able to win individual awards. I always want to win more. I want five, six or seven Golden Shoes if possible. Real Madrid are the biggest club in the world and we always have to win titles. I want the Champions League, La Liga and the Copa del Rey."
 
Ronaldo was accompanied at the awards ceremony by his mother, his son, the Madrid coach Rafa Benítez, club president Florentino Pérez and the Portuguese ambassador to Spain.
 
The Real Madrid star's previous three Golden Shoe successes came in 2008, 2011 and 2014. His first was at Manchester United after an astonishing tally of 31 Premier League goals. That was followed by a staggering 40-goal return in 2011 before dropping to 31 in 2014.
