Cristiano Ronaldo

The Evergreen Icon, a gem from Portugal who was made in England and became a legend in Spain. We are talking about the one and only Cristiano Ronaldo. He has done enough already to enter in the debate of the GOATS of the game.

Ronaldo broke many records during his career defining moments at Real Madrid. And one of those achievements came in the name of 3 Pichichis (Golden Boots). It was not at all easy because he had his eternal rival in that same league too, the Argentine genius Lionel Messi.

However, CR7 scored plenty of goals during his 9 years at the Spanish Capital and his number of goals were more than the number of matches he has played which in itself speaks about his goal scoring prowess.

4. Ferenck Puskas – 4

The Argentine maestro, Lionel Messi holds the record of most Pichichis by any player in the history of La Liga. Just another reason for him to be considered a strong applicant in the GOAT debate.

Lionel Messi is so much more than a Goal Scorer, he is a team player that links up play and helps the team in the build up by dropping deep into the midfield. Messi’s 8 Pichichis( Golden Boots) are just astonishing in itself.

His legacy is much more than that, He is arguably the greatest greatest player in the history of Spanish Football and probably in World Football too. Lionel Messi just like his eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo are clearly two of the greatest players to ever kick the ball.
