[/caption]The public has been talking about Lionel Messi and Wayne Rooneyâ€™s performances for their respective team as fabulous, but football star Cristiano Ronaldo is one player that the public might wrongly look upon with less admiration.
Ronaldo missed up to two month of action for Real Madrid in the early stages of the 2009/2010 season through injury. He also had to seat out a few number of games through suspension.
Still, Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s goal statistics for the Spanish giants is nothing but impressive.
Since match-day 1 in La Liga, CR9 has featured 13 times for Real Madrid and last Saturday, he scored his 10th and 11th goal for Los Blancos in the league.
In the Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo played 4 games out of the 6 in the group stages but he already tops the goal scoring charts with 6 goals.
Calculating quickly, the worldâ€™s most expensive football star has scored 17 goals so far in 17 appearances. This makes an average of one goal per match.
Who knows if Cristiano Ronaldo will not pip out La Ligaâ€™s current top scorer Lionel Messi for the Pichichi honor?
Should he maintain this record and should Real Madrid go far in the UEFA Champions League, then Cristiano Ronaldo will surely scoop Europeâ€™s Golden Boot just like he did two seasons ago after scoring 42 goals for Manchester United.
