Benitez Salutes History Making Ronaldo

Real Madrid coach Rafael Benitez piled the praise on Crisitiano Ronaldo after the Portuguese striker became his club’s all-time top scorer in the BBVA primera Liga after scoring five goals against a hapless Espanyol on Saturday.

Ronaldo’s quintet means he as now scored 230 league goals, taking him past the previous record of 228, which was held by Raul Gonzalez and Ronaldo has achieved that feat in just 204 games. “The numbers speak for themselves and someone who scores so many goals has a place in the history books,” said Benitez, who expects more to come, from the striker who caused worries after looking out of sorts and failing to score in his first two games of the season.

“I hope that he can continue to add to his goalscoring account for his own benefit and the team,” added the Real Madrid coach.
