Cristiano Ronaldo's Sole Season As 'CR9' At Real Madrid Was Genuinely Incredible

Cristiano Ronaldo's Sole Season As 'CR9' At Real Madrid Was Genuinely Incredible

Cristiano Ronaldo spent just one season wearing the number nine of Real Madrid - but he lived up to lofty expectations.

Ronaldo completed an £80 million move to Madrid from Manchester United in 2009 but wasn't able to claim his favoured number seven.

Aged 24 and ready to take on the world, Ronaldo played with freedom and hit 33 goals in 35 games. Moderate by his standards nowadays, but what a way to introduce yourself to La Liga.


The Portuguese superstar clearly wasn't fazed by being the world's most expensive player, managing to become a key figure instantly.

Barcelona won the title and Madrid finished second, but the hierarchy were impressed by their expensive acquisition.

Fans have reacted to the compilation and they're loving what is often a 'forgotten' season in Ronaldo's career.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Wizardry Hand Trick For Real Madrid And Portugal Still Needs Explaining

published at15 days ago


Ronaldo wearing the number nine brought back memories of his namesake, Ronaldo Nazario, strutting his stuff at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Asked by Fabio Cannavaro on an Instagram Live about being called the 'Real Ronaldo' the 44-year-old said, "For CR7, it must be boring to hear that I am the real Ronaldo.

"People cannot be compared. Cristiano will remain in football history for the goals and for the continuity he has achieved. He will remain one of the best, like Messi."
