Ronaldo, the controversial Instagram post

Did Cristiano Ronaldo become the top scorer in football history on Sunday? For the Portuguese, it is yes.

Still so physically sharp at 36, Cristiano Ronaldo will continue to play at the high level for a few more years, at the Juventus or in another big European club. He still has plenty of time to become the top scorer in all-time history, even though he considers that he has become ” the World’s Top Scorer in football history “, In a post on Instagram, this Sunday, after his hat-trick with the Bianconeri against Cagliari (1-3).

“CR7″ is thus pleased to have reached the 770 official goals, whereas he had equaled King Pelé last week: ” My first words go directly to Pelé. There is no player in the world who has not grown up listening to Pelé’s stories, his goals and his successes. I am no exception. For this reason, I am filled with joy and I am honored after this goal which puts me at the top of the list of the best scorers, above Pelé’s record, something that I never dreamed of when I grew up as a child from Madeira “. The Brazilian legend congratulated him on having broken his record for goals “in official matches”.

Still far from Josef Bican?

The concern for Ronaldo is that his status as the top scorer in history is probably not valid. If we take into account the count from the Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistics Foundation (RSSSF), Cristiano Ronaldo remains 3rd behind Romario (772 goals) and especially the current number 1, Josef Bican (805 goals). In recent years, the data of this independent body, concerning the top scorers in history, have been valid.

If Ronaldo has suddenly taken the lead, according to him and his admirers, it is probably the fault of a count made by a Spanish twitto, MisterChip, last summer. Some believe that 46 goals from Bican, the Austro-Hungarian scorer of the 1930s and 1940s, were scored in D2 or youth and therefore should not be counted. MisterChip took this information and, obviously, Cristiano Ronaldo too.
