Cristiano Ronaldo becomes first player to score 50 Premier League, La Liga and Serie A goals

Christiano Ronaldo- Sport news in Nigeria

After making history on Monday, the Portuguese superstar discussed his latest achievement

Cristiano Ronaldo insisted that while records are nice, the most important thing is for defending champions Juventus to succeed following his historic outing in Serie A.

Ronaldo became the fastest player to score 50 Serie A goals as league leaders Juve defeated slumping Lazio 2-1 in Turin on Monday.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner – who reached half a century of Serie A goals in just 61 matches – scored twice in the space of three second-half minutes to put Juve on the cusp of their ninth successive Scudetto.

Ronaldo also became the first player to score 50 or more goals in Serie A, La Liga and the Premier League but the former Real Madrid and Manchester United superstar attempted to shrug off his personal achievement.

“Records are always important, but the important thing is that the team wins,” Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia post-game.

“We are a phenomenal team and we showed that again today, although we always want to improve and raise the bar.

“These things are nice, but the Capocannoniere title is a natural process that comes as a consequence of scoring to win games for the team.”
