Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro. What can we say?

From playing for Sporting Lisbon as skinny 16-year in 2002 to lifting 28 trophies which includes six league titles, five UEFA Champions League titles and one UEFA European Championship while dominating goal-scoring charts by 2019, Ronaldo is undoubtedly one of the best players to have ever graced planet Earth.

His individual achievements alone come second to none, having recently guided Juventus to securing an eighth consecutive Serie A title – becoming the first ever professional football player to win Europe’s top three leagues.
