Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has received his fourth Golden Boot after topping the La Liga goalscoring charts in the 2014/15 season.

The Portuguese amassed an incredible 48 goals in 35 appearances for Los Blancos, pipping arch rival Lionel Messi to the title.

And the accolades do not stop there. As a result of Ronaldo's achievement, he becomes the first player to ever win the illustrious prize four times.

Following the presentation of his award, according to Sky Sports, he said: "I never planned on winning four times. Maybe one or two yes but never four.

"I always want more. I know I am the only one to have four but I want more. That implies winning trophies with the world's greatest club.

"This year will be no different and we want to win La Liga, the Cup and the Champions League. I hope we see each other again next year."

Madrid take on Levante this weekend at the Bernabeu in a fixture that could see Ronaldo make further history and overtake Raul as the club's all-time top goalscorer - the record currently stands 323, which the Portugal international has equalled.

It would appear, though, that should Ronaldo fail to score and claim the record this weekend, he will have plenty of time to do so.

The mercurial winger has spoken of his intentions to play until he is 40 and wants to end his career with Madrid.

According to the Mirror, he said: "Logically, I have a contract until I am 33 and - as I have said a number of times - my dream is to finish here with Real Madrid.

“If you take care of yourself you can play until you are 40. I want to keep going for another five or six years.

"I am settled here, I'm useful here and I want to continue at the club. I want to win and I am at the best club in the world."
