Ronaldo’s fame disappeared when he left Real Madrid (Part 2)

The battle between Ronaldo and Messi has also been pushed up a new ladder during this time. Both broke a series of new steps in football history. From the number of goals, to the collective title and finally to the number of Golden Balls.

Ronaldo has it all at Real, from fame, to the number one star in football, to an unending battle with Messi, the perfect catalyst for the hyperbole of the Portuguese superstar.

What is Ronaldo at Juventus? It is the leadership of the leadership, the respect of the fans and the respect of both opponents. Juve or Italy too “good” with Ronaldo. That backfired on this big ego star.

Ronaldo does not lack money, but he lacks an opponent that will compare with him every day to push himself beyond the limits. Messi and Barca have always done that for nearly 10 years of the peak of Ronaldo’s career at Real Madrid.

Juventus with a unique position in Serie A does not have that. The defeat in the Champions League quarter-final of 2018/19 against Ajax is a testament to Ronaldo’s inability to drag the rest of the army to Juve’s aspiration to the peak of Europe.

They need a real counterweight in the domestic arena to motivate themselves, and push Ronaldo to create miracles, just like Messi and Barca have done.

Can Ronaldo get up after failure?

Without Ronaldo, Real Madrid lost to Barca 1-5 in the first El Clasico match of last season, fired two coaches after only nine months, went blank in all competitions and had to ask for help from Zinedine Zidane.

But similar to the story of the cup, Ronaldo himself was heavily influenced by leaving Real Madrid. He is no longer backed by the utopia of Los Blancos and accepts the pervasive Italians, thereby losing the edge in flashy races like the Golden Ball.

16 months after apart, Ronaldo and Real Madrid have ever realized that they both need each other to oppose Barca with Lionel Messi? That question will permanently have no answer. In football, few people like to talk about the past if they want to rise.

With Ronaldo’s personality, today’s defeat to Messi could be the stepping stone for a race to the Golden Ball 2020 starting tomorrow. The fondness of that CR7 has always helped him overcome difficulties from being a small boy to Lisbon to study football to the days of consecutive defeat against Messi and Barca at Real.

Ronaldo’s fame disappeared when he left Real Madrid (Part 1)

Cristiano Ronaldo lost, even humbly lost at the 2019 European Golden Ball award gala when only ranked third, after Lionel Messi and Virgil van Dijk.

This defeat was actually heralded after CR7 spent the Champions League elimination season in the quarter-finals with poor results at the awards ceremony of “UEFA Best Player of the Year” and FIFA The Best.

But the complete failure of Ronaldo against Messi still makes everyone forced to ask the question: Since when has Ronaldo fallen too deeply compared to Barca’s No. 10?

Lost the launch pad of Real Madrid fame

Is it random or not that the results of the first season did not play completely for Real Madrid that Ronaldo was knocked out of the Top 2 European Golden Ball? The answer is no if you look back at Real Madrid and compare it to Ronaldo’s new stop, Juventus.

In nine years with Real Madrid, Ronaldo only once jumped out of the Top 2. It is the story of 2010, when CR7 fell to 6th place in the golden race after the failure season with Real (eliminated from 1/8 Champions League) and Portugal (eliminated from 1/8 World Cup).

After the start of the season, the years Ronalso compared Messi fiercely with consecutive records were destroyed. It was also the time when Real got up to confront Barca on and off the pitch.

Ronaldo won 4 out of 5 Golden Balls during his time at Real Madrid.

Before Ronaldo went to Real, Los Blancos spent a long time weaker than Barca not only on the pitch but also at the commercial value. Barca with Ronaldinho, Deco, Eto’o or later Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry is an attractive image destination, instead of Realized by the Netherlands at the hands of Ramon Calderon.

Real needs more than one symbol to confront Barca with Messi. And Ronaldo was brought back from MU, Kaka also appeared from AC Milan. Real bought both European Golden Balles for the Bernabeu in an attempt to knock Messi down. But only Ronaldo shines. And that is how CR7 was chosen to become because of the number one stars of Los Blancos.

For nearly 10 years, Ronaldo has received the full support of Real Madrid to become the number one symbol of the team in terms of images from both on and off the pitch. The reputation of the team with the highest commercial value in the world is the perfect tool when combined with the talent and reputation of CR7.
