Just stepping onto the pitch nowadays would seem to bring new records for Cristiano Ronaldo, even when he doesn’t score. The latest of his records comes after Juventus’ Coppa Italia triumph.
The Portuguese was not as involved as he would have loved to but yet adds another pair of illustrious records to his name. Cristiano was mostly ‘quiet’ as goals from Dejan Kulusevski and Federico Chiesa were enough to see off Atalanta 2-1 to win the Coppa Italia after two years.
The Coppa Italia success was the 14th cup triumph for the Old Lady and Pirlo’s first major trophy as Juve manager.
For the Italian giant, the trophy was significant in the sense that it saw them avoid a trophyless season. The season has been a difficult one for the Serie A holders such that they could be playing in the Europa League next season.
But for Cristiano Ronaldo, another triumph in Juve colors means he continues to leave his name further in the record books.
Cristiano Ronaldo Continues to Conquer All Of the Major Leagues
Firstly, the 36-year-old is now the first player in HISTORY of football to win all 3 domestic trophies in three of Europe’s top five leagues. He is exclusive in this category and it would take some feat for someone else to match this record.
Again, the Coppa Italia triumph also means Ronaldo has now won every major competition he’s played in for Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus. A stat that indicates he is a serial winner and loves to win in any territory.
Although it won’t exactly change the narrative of Juve’s poor season, it can at least help them ease the wounds of a campaign to forget.
