Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane Zidane who was satisfied with his side’s resounding win against Celta praised Cristiano Ronaldo who surpassed Zarra’s 251 La Liga goals with his double brace on Saturday night.
Cristiano Ronaldo adds to his tally and keeps going. The Portuguese player overcomes almost every challenge. With the four goals against Celta, the leading scorer in the history of Real Madrid surpassed the tally of 350 official goals with the Whites. His goalscoring average is impressive: more than a goal per game in his 335 appearances for Real Madrid (1.05).
Zidane in his assessment of his side’s improvement in the game said:
“We discussed something during the break. In the first half there was an opponent playing, a good side that also had something to show. We came out really strongly in the second half, very switched on in attack and with more pressure. When you score a goal things are easier.
“I will take away Cristiano’s performance. People whistling from time to time is a part of football, not only at Cristiano. The fans are demanding while also knowing the players well and wanting more from them. That is good in order to improve and do more. We always need to do more. You know about Cristiano, he is capable of scoring four goals, and few players can do that. Therefore he is unique.
“It is unique. I maybe hit the ball well from closer in. I never scored four goals. Few players can have that feeling. He is at Madrid, he is strong, good, and capable of scoring four goals in 35 minutes. I am delighted when I see him scoring.”
Ronaldo was presented with a shirt commemorating the fact he has surpassed 350 goals by Florentino Pérez. The Portuguese player, also has 253 goals in La Liga and becomes the second leading scorer in the history of the competition after moving beyond the 251 scored by Telmo Zarra.
