Juventus Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo Ranks Only Third In Greatest Goalscorers In Club Football History

The Czech FA has argued that Ronaldo has not broken Bican's record, saying that "Josef Bican scored 821 goals in official matches."

Football legend Pele has also claimed that he has scored over 1,000 goals, with Brazilian club Santos echoing his bold statement.

According to the IFFHS, Ronaldo was named the third-most prolific goalscorer when his goals for Portugal were removed.

That means the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is 28 goals shy from equalling the top goalscorer.

IFFHS named Brazilian legend Romario top of the pile, saying that the former PSV Eindhoven star scored 689 goals.
