Cristiano Ronaldo becomes first player to win Golden Boot in Premier League, LaLiga and Serie A
CRISTIANO RONALDO has made history again – becoming the first player to ever win the Golden Boot in England, Spain and Italy.
The Portuguese’s side endured a difficult campaign, only coming fourth in Serie A after previously winning nine Scudettos in a row.
Despite for the crucial 4-0 final day victory over Bologna, CR7 still finished comfortably above nearest challengers Romelu Lukaku and Luis Muriel.
The Belgian and Colombian scored 24 and 22 respectively.
This season marks the fifth time that Ronaldo, 36, has won his league’s Golden Boot trophy.
He first got his hands on one in England, when he scored 31 Premier League goals during the 2007-08 season, also winning the title, Champions League and Ballon d’Or that year.
His move to Real Madrid started the annual competition with Spain’s Golden Boot.
The two took prolific goalscoring to new levels, with Ronaldo managing to win Spain’s ‘Pichichi’ trophy in 2011, 2014 and 2015.
It took 40 goals to win that first one in 2011, and tallies in the next seasons of 46 and 34 weren’t even enough to beat Messi.
In 2014 he reclaimed his crown with 31, then retained the Pichichi the next year with an eyewatering 48.
After being beaten by Luis Suarez and Messi again, Ronaldo moved to Italy in 2018.
