Last June, just arrived on the bench of Real Madrid, Rafael Benitez was planning to replace Cristiano Ronaldo at the forefront of the attack of the Merengue. Since then, the idea was locked in a drawer. But a statistic proves that CR7 really has his place at the end of the BBC Trident.
Cristiano Ronaldo at the center post, it’s getting Benzema out of the axis, rethinking the role of Gareth Bale, and rebuilding everything around. And yes, it’s not just a change in FIFA that Rafael Benitez thought by submitting the idea of a CR7 as a new striker of Real Madrid, in the month of June. But the Spanish technician did not go further in the project, since he left the Portuguese on his left side. He nevertheless tried to give Gareth Bale the keys to the position of the game leader, without uping the talents of the Welshman.
In order to help Benitez to make the right decision for his training, the journalists of the daily Marca were interested in how Cristiano Ronaldo had scored his 61 goals with the Casa Blanca, during the past season (all competitions combined). Balance of their search: 92% of the pawns were planted in the Portuguese was in the opposing surface. And for those who still doubt the trumps of the Lusitanian killers, know that 38 of these achievements were born on a touch of bullet.
