Is Cristiano Ronaldo as good as he used to be?
Most of my friends like football and when it comes to football most of us have a favourite team and player. I wanted to find out more about which teams and player students at Midhurst Rother College liked best.
Ironically many teams have united in their name, but football often divides friends based on what teams and players they like. I decided to look into Cristiano Ronaldo and see what people think about him and if he is becoming too old to play.
Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the best footballer in the world or even ever. He was just named again the Ballon d'Or for the 5th time. But is he still improving or has he already hit his peak? What do the statistic say?
So far this season, Ronaldo has scored 33 goals. He scored 18 of the goals in the Laliga while the others were scored in cup games such as the champions, where he has scored 12. He has also assisted 5 goals.
While this season isn’t over, his results from his 2014/2015 looked different. In that season, he scored a total of 61 goals with 48 of them in Laliga and 10 in the champion’s league. He was also responsible for 22 assists.
Dylan, an MRC student, says “Ronaldo is getting old but is getting worse mentally not physically.” But another Bradley disagrees and says “Ronaldo is still the best footballer in the world, he may be getting worse but he is still a great.’
The only thing that is consistent is that we remain divided in our opinions.
