It has been long since any player in any of the major football leagues in Europe scored five goals in a single game. Cristiano Ronaldo scored five goals in the 9-1 thrashing of Granada in the la liga. This is the first time that Cristiano Ronaldo will score five goals in his career. This is also the first time that Real Madrid will score nine goals in la liga since 1967. This goal takes Cristiano Ronaldo goal tally this season in la liga to 36 goals and 4 goals ahead of arch rival Lionel Messi of Barcelona with 32 goals. Ronaldo is the 3rd player in Madrid to have reached the 300 goal mark in 287 appearances.
The elated coach, Carlo Ancelotti said his team was physically in top shape and the best form as the season grinds to an end. According to Ancelotti ‘Cristiano has improved as the team has improved. What more can I say. It is the first time he has scored five with Madrid, which is good for everyone, for him and for the team in next game.’
Ancelotti credited the form of Real Madrid to the return of James Rodriguez, who has been off for two months due to broken foot. He said ‘James game was very good, you did not notice that he has been out for two months. He played well, with quality, intensity and he is now used to playing in this position. He helped us, as he is a player who has ideas.
Meanwhile, team mate Karim Benzema hailed Cristiano Ronaldo as ‘phenomenon’. According to Benzema, ‘Cristiano is a phenomenon; he is always looking for goal and ways to help the team. He deserves everything he has achieved.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
