5 Champions League winners for World Cup? Interpretation of the century problem: Will Ronaldo be changed?
Ronaldo accepted the lie detector challenge and was asked if he would like to exchange all the Champions League trophies for the World Cup winner Hercules Cup", he pondered and raised the corners of his mouth slightly, but the trailer ended here, and there was no answer. So if you are Ronaldo, will you exchange?
5 Champions Leagues, making Ronaldo the king of the Champions League
One of the proudest achievements of Cristiano Ronaldo's career is to win the Champions League five times, becoming the player who has won the most titles since the restructuring of the Champions League, including Real Madrid's 4 titles in 5 years and 3 consecutive titles, which is a great feat that is difficult to replicate in contemporary football.
Although the record of 5 titles was equaled by Benzema and others last summer, Ronaldo is still the all-time goalscorer king of the Champions League, the all-time assist king, etc., so he is a veritable "king of the Champions League".
It can be said that Cristiano Ronaldo's inclusion in the GOAT discussion is largely due to his great achievements in the Champions League. And in terms of the number of big ear cups, the president has one more than Messi.
Missed the World Cup, missed GOAT
However, Ronaldo eventually lost the PK with Messi, and what was missing was a World Cup title. Messi only became the recognized GOAT in football after lifting the Hercules Cup last summer, and even if he won the Ballon d'Or seven times, he was not recognized by many people.
Pele won the World Cup three times, and Maradona directed the World Cup alone in 1986, so he can also be called the king. Cruyff is great enough, right? It is known as the ball saint, but because there is no World Cup, the overall status of football is slightly inferior to the top two.
In fact, before the start of the World Cup, Ronaldo said that if he could win the championship, he would retire 100% in place. After the World Cup exit, he was completely discouraged and left Europe, which means giving up the Champions League and not defending the status of the "king of the Champions League".
Recently, Ronaldo was interviewed again, saying that he would not return to Europe to play, but he did not retire from the national team, the meaning is obvious: he wants to play in the World Cup again to fight for the last chance.
What's more, Portugal has never won the World Cup, which is the highest honor of the country, in order to reflect the big pattern, it is estimated that Ronaldo will also be willing to exchange the Champions League for the World Cup champion.
