Cristiano has dominated the Champions League and made it his own, winning the competition five times. However, the same cannot be said for his namesake – the original, Brazilian Ronaldo – who surprisingly didn’t even play in a Champions League final.
The legendary striker turned out for some of the biggest teams in the world. After his one-year stint at Barcelona in 1996-97, he then spent five years at Inter Milan before returning to Spain and spending five years at Real Madrid. His final club in Europe was AC Milan before heading back to his native Brazil.
When looking at that list of former teams, as well as taking into account he was awarded the Ballon d’Or and named the best player in the world in 1998 and 2002, it is incredible that he never got his hands on Europe’s biggest club competition.
