Cristiano Ronaldo Sets Record in Saudi Arabia with Highest Number of Goals Scored in a Season


Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has once again put his name on the pages of history books with a new record.

The former Manchester United player now holds the record for most goals scored in a Saudi Arabian Pro League Season.

The striker’s brace yesterday took his tally up to 35 in Al Nassr’s shirt, surpassing the previous record of 34.

Moroccan striker, Abderrazak Hamdallah, the previous holder achieved this feat in 2019 and had enjoyed five glory years before yesterday.

However, judging by merit and how impressive his successor had performed all season, the handover is well-deserved.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Impressive Performance

Al Ittihad comparable to EPL’s Citizens is no small team in the Pro League, so defeating them requires individual brilliance.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo showed why he remains one of the best in the sport by putting two past them.

The 39-year-old first started with a goal at the first-half mark and a second in the 69th minute.

The second was a powerful header to stabilize his team’s lead over Al Ittihad before full-time results ended at 4-2.

More significantly, the goal placed him as the latest holder of the most goals scored in a league season.

At his age, an achievement like this is extremely amazing and deserving of accolades.

This shows consistency and why a lot of youngsters look up to him as a role model.

On his Twitter account, the star tweeted, “I don’t follow the records, the records follow me.” attracting millions of views.

His confidence radiates all over this statement, and according to most of his followers, he backs it up with actions.

The Portuguese Impact on His Team

Although Al Nassr finished the season 14 points behind Al Hilal, the league winners, they did well throughout the campaign.

With Ronaldo leading their frontline, the team’s performance has constantly improved, especially in goal scoring.

Going back to when he first arrived, his start wasn’t explosive, but it didn’t delay before he found his balance.

Since then, his contributions have been applauded, and at a rate like this, retirement for the 39-year-old is still uncertain.

Ronaldo was recently called upon for his 11th international tournament, the Euro 2024 in Germany.

This selection would prolong his record as the most-capped (206) in men’s football alongside the most international goals scored (128).

These achievements are not common among players his age, proving why Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the greatest of all time.
