A player of Cristiano Ronaldo’s calibre can never be replaced.
Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the greatest player to step onto the football pitch. He has won almost everything on the individual and club level. His scoring records are inhumane.
Real Madrid can never replace a player who scored 451 goals in just 438 games for them. Cristiano Ronaldo is from another planet and his Real Madrid stats rightly prove so.
Players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are born once in a century who take the football pitch by storm. The two are way above the level of all the other footballers. No one comes near to their goalscoring stats.
Real Madrid have signed Eden Hazard, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Luca Jovic since the departure of Ronaldo. All the newcomers along with veterans Benzema and Bale have been unable to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo when he left for Juventus in the summer of 2018.
According to GiveMeSport, between 2009 and 2018, the Spanish club played 519 games and scored in all but 46 of them – failing to find the net in just 8.86% of matches.
Yet since Ronaldo left for Juventus, Madrid have played 71 times and failed to score in 17 – which is 23.94% of their matches.
Such is the impact of Ronaldo on a team that the other star players can’t fill the void left by him. And it’s also not fair to expect others to fill in his shoes because Cristiano Ronaldo is a phenomenon.
Real Madrid quickly need to find a way to score goals because goals win you matches and this is what Real Madrid are lacking now.
