Petr Cech congratulates Cristiano Ronaldo on Twitter for scoring 500th goal

Published Add your comment

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech personally congratulated Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo on Twitter after the latter scored the 500th goal of his professional career against Malmo last night.

Embedding a tweet from @OptaJoe, stating that Ronaldo had reached another remarkable milestone, Cech sent a message to the three-time Ballon d’Or winner saying: “@Cristiano congratulations! 5⃣⚽️⚽️”.

Short and sweet but to the point. However, it’s safe to say that Cech shouldn’t hang around for a reply: Ronaldo clearly doesn’t manage his own Twitter account; he’s far too busy scoring goals for that.

It was the prolific former Manchester United star who scored both goals in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Swedish outfit Malmo.

The Portugal international now has 10 goals in his first eight appearances of the season for Los Blancos, leaving the 30-year-old on track to score in excess of 50 goals for the sixth consecutive campaign.

Wenger under fire after resting Cech again

It’s been a less happy week for Cech, who watched on from the sidelines as Arsenal crumbled to a shock 3-2 home defeat to Olympiakos on Tuesday.

Arsene Wenger made the decision to rest the former Chelsea star for Sunday’s crunch Premier League fixture against Manchester United, and subsequently deployed David Ospina instead - but it backfired on the Gunners’ boss.

Wenger paid the price for making the same decision in the first round of Champions League matches against Dinamo Zagreb.

With qualification for the Champions League knockout rounds now looking unlikely, only a win over the Red Devils this weekend will satisfy the immensely frustrated Arsenal faithful.

Can Arsenal still progress to the knockout rounds of the Champions League? Is Cristiano Ronaldo still the world’s best player? Have your say on both these talking points in the comments below!
