Cristiano Ronaldo: Footage of his debut season at Juventus has gone viral

In the eyes of many, Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest player in history.

The amount of records the Portugal international has broken is quite scary and he’s still going strong with Manchester United at the age of 37.

Ronaldo is the leading scorer in men’s professional football, while no player has scored more goals than him in the Champions League or on the international stage.

And one thing Ronaldo has over eternal rival Lionel Messi is his ability to effortlessly adapt to a new league.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has smashed it in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A.

His spell at Juventus after leaving Real Madrid is actually seriously underrated in the present day, with much of that down to the fact that the team were unable to deliver the Champions League trophy.

But from an individual perspective, Ronaldo’s stint in Turin was magnificent.

In 134 games for the Italian outfit, he scored 101 goals, including 81 in just 98 Serie A outings.

That’s a record befitting of an all-time great and his debut season at Juventus was nothing short of world-class.

A viral video compilation on Twitter illustrates that point perfectly.

Goals, assists and dribbles that a very young Ronaldo would be proud of, he really was an absolute beast in 2018/19.

Ronaldo finished 2018/19 with 28 goals and 11 assists to his name from 43 appearances, which is ridiculous for a player well into their 30s in a debut campaign.

The most followed man on Instagram was decisive in so many big games as well.

He found the back of the net against Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, Ajax, AC Milan, Lazio and Inter Milan throughout the course of the season.

Ronaldo was deservedly named Serie A Footballer of the Year in 2019, an award he then retained in 2020.
