The Portuguese has enjoyed unparalleled success in his almost two-decade-long career so far, winning almost everything there is to win.

From winning the Champions League multiple times to winning the Ballon d’Or multiple times – Cristiano Ronaldo is no stranger to success both at individual and club level.

Ronaldo has been a winner from the very beginning. His first of silverware dates all the way back to 2002 when he helped Sporting CP lift the Supertaca Candido de Oliveira as a 16-year-old.

After acquiring a taste for glory, CR7 moved to Manchester United in search of greater challenges. It was a Man United that he proved grandest at the biggest of stages by guiding Sir Alex Ferguson’s side to multiple titles including the Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.

A move to Real Madrid then followed where he established himself not only as one of the best in the world but also as one of the greatest of all time.

35-year-old Ronaldo continues to enhance his legacy at Juventus, having added made a new addition to his glittering trophy collection in the shape of Supercoppa Italiana recently.

“A great example. It is the highest testimony of how thanks to work and passion it is possible to achieve unthinkable goals on paper,” former AC Milan striker, now president of Liberia, George Weah told in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, via Goal.

“Ronaldo’s story tells you that if you believe you can do something, you can do it.

“He’s not the best in the world, but he trained incredibly to become one. I’m a fan of his, because he didn’t lose humility and earned everything he has, he fought meter by meter to get to where he is now. “
