Real Madrid legend Hugo Sanchez says Cristiano Ronaldo will continue break goalscoring records, despite some critics suggesting he his past his best.
Ronaldo has netted 30 goals in 29 appearances in all competitions for Madrid this season, but has been criticised on more than one occasion for failing to produce in big games.
The 31-year-old was quiet throughout Madrid’s 2-1 win over Granada on Sunday and some have suggested he is now past his best.
However, Sanchez is adamant Ronaldo remains the club’s main man and has backed him to keep making the difference.
“Ronaldo is a very competitive player and this is why he will continue to break records,” Sanchez was quoted as saying by Marca.
“I don’t mind that he broke my record, because he is a Madridista.
“Cristiano is still the main man in Madrid’s attack.”
Earlier this season, Ronaldo broke Sanchez’s goalscoring record at Madrid before later surpassing Raul as the club’s all-time top scorer.
