|At Juventus Cristiano Ronaldo may have finally found the home he's longed for
| sbo168 A world-record 80,000 spectators turned up at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2009 to witness Cristiano Ronaldo‘s unveiling as a Real Madrid player. The audience surpassed that which greeted Diego Maradona upon his arrival at Napoli 25 years earlier.
In many ways, it was the highlight of Ronaldo’s complicated relationship with the Bernabeu faithful. He was the latest recipient of the prestigious Ballon d’Or, recognising him as the world’s best player and making him all the more appealing to the Madridistas.
Having watched as Pep Guardiola assembled an unstoppable force at Barcelona, Madrid needed to respond and following his exploits at Manchester United, including a Champions League triumph, Ronaldo fitted the bill. Above all though, he was meant to be their answer to Lionel Messi.
The bar was set impossibly high from the outset but Ronaldo consistently met expectations with his output, sbo168 pushing the envelope even further and smashing numerous records along the way. But the Bernabeu is an unforgiving arena and its demanding occupants will tolerate no less than complete domination over every opponent which enters their lair.
If you had to engineer the perfect modern day forward, Ronaldo would be the closest thing, but despite his incredible ability and phenomenal returns, sbo168 he was not immune to the fans’ – often irrational – discontent. He won four more Ballon d’Or titles during his nine-year stay at Madrid, yet endured many more occasions when his own supporters turned against him.
