The Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo put his name in the history of La Liga. In the last La Liga jornada of the 2010-2011 Season, Ronaldo broke the record of La Liga goal numbers in a single season.
There were not only one but two goals that are contributed by that most expensive player in the world to help Los Merengues destroys Almeria with 8-1 at Stadio Santiago Bernabeu, Saturday (21/5).
With the goals, Ronaldo broke the previous goal records from the legendary Madrid striker Hugo Sanchez for the season 1989-1990 and the legendary Athletic Bilbao striker Telmo Zarra who booked the record for the season 1959-1960.
Ronaldo’s first goal also opened the Madrid’s victory when the first half was only 4 minutes. He easily finished a heading assist from Sergio Ramos. Ronaldo scored his second goal in 77 minutes which was created through individual action before a finish with flat shot which is out of the Almeria’s goal keeper Suarez Esteban.
Ronaldo have a total of 40 goals to put his name as the el pichichi this season, hence setting aside Barcelona’s Lionel Messi who scored 31 goals. CR7 has two more goals that the previous goals by Hugo Sanchez and Telmo Zarra. If totaled with the goals from the other leagues, Ronaldo has 53 goals this season.
