Portugal and Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo is widely considered as one of the best players in the history of the sport, with the striker winning numerous professional and individual honours, including five Ballon d'Or awards.

Ronaldo finished the 2020/21 campaign with 29 goals to his name, the most by any player in the Serie A this season. This has ensured that the 36-year-old has become the only player in the history of the sport to achieve the feat in Premier League, LaLiga and Serie A.

This is the first time in his three seasons in Italy, that Ronaldo has won the Capocannoniere or Golden Boot, after having scored 21 in 2018-19, which was five behind, Fabio Quagliarella and 31 in the following campaign, again finishing behind European Golden Shoe winner, Ciro Immobile.

Ronaldo won the Golden Boot in the Premier League back in 2007-08, where he scored 31 goals for Manchester United while winning the LaLiga Pichichi award on three occasions during his time with Real Madrid.

In total, the 36-year-old has scored 81 goals in 97 appearances for Juventus in the league, winning back-to-back Serie A Footballer of the Year awards in 2019 and 2020, though his future has come into question following their disappointing performance both domestically and in Europe this season.
