Cristiano Ronaldo can become first player ever to achieve historic record with Liverpool icon close behind


Ronaldo can do something that no other football player has ever managed.

Cristiano Ronaldo can do something no other player in the history of football has done by the end of this season.

Ronaldo is currently in the midst of his second season with Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr, having joined them as a free agent last January.

He has 26 goals to his name in the league this season, including a hat-trick during a 5-1 thrashing of Al Taee on Saturday.

Ronaldo currently leads the race for the Saudi Pro League Golden Boot, and he is four goals ahead of Al Hilal’s Aleksandar Mitrovic.

But the Serbian suffered a muscle injury in his most recent match which has been described as ‘heavy‘ by local media – potentially allowing Ronaldo to pull further clear.

And according to Twitter account Twitugal, he could become the first player in football history to win a Golden Boot in four different top divisions, excluding state championships.

Ronaldo top scored in the Premier League with Manchester United, La Liga with Real Madrid and Serie A with Juventus.

The Guardian wrote in 2016 that Brazil icon Romario won the Golden Boot in the top divisions of Spain, Netherlands and Brazil, while he also did so in the Campeonato Carioca – a state championship in Brazil.

A host of world football stars have also won Golden Boots in three different countries, including Alfredo Di Stefano, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Robert Lewandowski.

Another player to have done so is Luis Suarez, who top scored in the Eredivisie with Ajax, La Liga with Barcelona and the Premier League with Liverpool.

Now at MLS side Inter Miami, the Uruguayan already has five goals in seven league appearances for his new club.

However, as the MLS regular season ends in October, Ronaldo will become the first player to reach the sensational landmark if he can do so at the end of this season.
