—Former Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti, on Cristiano Ronaldo June 2016

2015-16 season

After coach Ancelotti was sacked, Real appointed Rafael Benitez to the hot seat. But Ronaldo did not like the Spaniard. He even swore at Benitez during pre-season training because he didn't like his coaching methods. Once, Benitez sent one of his assistants to meet Ronaldo and brought with him a USB drive with videos and photos that he said CR7 could learn to improve. But Ronaldo responded by refusing to accept the USB drive and reminding his teacher: "Tell Benitez I will send him a USB drive with my goals for him to study."

He respects and works well with Ancelotti no different from his former teacher Sir Alex Ferguson. When sitting on the hot seat at the Bernabeu, Benitez even went to the center of Wales to find Gareth Bale to talk privately. The press said that Benitez wanted to build a play around Bale.

Later, coach Benitez once reluctantly praised Ronaldo as "the best player he ever coached" to correct the mistake. But this action seems to backfire. The only response was Ronaldo's indifference. On the training ground, he always tried to avoid facing his teacher.

In his seventh season at Real Madrid, the 2015-16 season, Ronaldo reached the milestone of becoming the club's all-time top scorer. His goal in a 6–0 win over Espanyol on 12 September took his La Liga tally to 230 in 203 games, second only to the legendary Raúl.

Later that year, he finished second in the race to win the 2015 FIFA Ballon d'Or, behind Messi.

He scored 14 goals against only 2 teams Espanyol and Malmo and was completely missing in matches with Barcelona, ​​Paris Saint-Germain or Atletico. In the 0-4 defeat to Barca at home, CR7 had dozens of delicious opportunities to turn the game around, but he missed it all. This defeat was part of the reason why Benitez was sacked in January 2016 and replaced by Zinédine Zidane.

In the Copa del Rey, because the previous coach Benitez used illegal players in the match against Cadiz in the round of 32 teams, Real was defeated by the BTC and was eliminated early.

Ronaldo was the captain of the Portuguese team at the 2010 World Cup.[163] On June 15, 2010, in the opening match (which ended in a goalless draw) of Group G of the 2010 FIFA World Cup between Portugal and Ivory Coast, Ronaldo was beaten by the right-back on the right side. A foul on the opposing side by Guy Demel resulted in both getting angry and both getting yellow cards.[164] The next day, Portugal spoke to FIFA to remove Ronaldo's absurd yellow card because he had done nothing wrong but the appeal was dismissed.

Ronaldo failed to make a big impression at the World Cup, having gone without a goal in qualifying.[165] His only goal of the tournament came in a 7-0 win over the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on June 21, which was also his first international goal in 16 months without a match. national team jersey.[166] Finally, Portugal was eliminated by Spain in the round of 16 with a score of 1-0.

Euro 2012

Ronaldo scored his first goal in the Euro 2012 qualifiers with a strike that sealed a 3-1 win over Denmark on 8 October 2012. During the qualifying round, he scored a total of 7 goals. On 14 May 2012, he was officially named in the list of 23 Portuguese players participating in Euro 2012.

At the Euro 2012 group stage, the Portuguese team fell into Group B, the group dubbed the "Group of death".[169] In his first match against Germany, he was disappointed by lackluster performance and Portugal lost 0-1.[170] By the second game against Denmark, Ronaldo had missed many scoring opportunities including two opportunities to face goalkeeper Stephan Andersen. However, Portugal still won the final 3-2.[171] In this match, every time Ronaldo touches the ball or finishes, the Danish fans chant Lionel Messi's name to put pressure on him. In the following press conference, Ronaldo reacted very harshly to this action:

Do you know where Lionel Messi was at this time last year? He played really badly and got Argentina out of the Copa America quarterfinals in his own country. I don't think there's anything worse than that

However, in the final match of the group stage against the Netherlands, Ronaldo scored a brace, thereby helping Portugal win 2-1 and win tickets to the quarterfinals, Ronaldo also became the best player. match.[173] This double also helped him go down in Portuguese football history when he became the first player in the country to score in all five major tournaments in a row.[174] In the quarter-final against the Czech Republic, Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game in the 80th minute[175] and for the second time in a row was voted the best player by the fans and the UEFA expert jury. 1st match.[176]

World Cup 2014

After passing the play-off round against Sweden, Portugal is in Group G with Germany, the United States and Ghana. In the opening leg, Portugal lost heavily to Germany 0-4, this match Pepe received a red card in the 37th minute leading to the home team breaking the match. The next round, Portugal also did not play well and was fortunate to get a 2-2 draw against the United States, Ronaldo had 1 assist in this match; In the last match, although Ronaldo scored the first goal in the tournament to help the home team beat Ghana 2-1, with Germany only winning 1-0 against the United States, this result was not enough for Ronaldo and his teammates to be in the knockout round -out due to being inferior to the United States on goal difference.

Euro 2016

Ronaldo was the captain of the Portuguese team during the Euro 2016 season. He had an unimpressive start to the tournament, even being described as "bad". Falling into a rather light group with Iceland, Austria and Hungary, Portugal struggled again. Ronaldo himself also played poorly. After losing the match in the 1-1 draw with Iceland, he missed a penalty kick in the match against Austria, putting the home team in a dangerous position when it had to win the top team Hungary to be sure of the ticket to continue. That was the time when Ronaldo was heavily criticized by public opinion, so much so that he could no longer keep his composure when he snatched the reporter's microphone and threw it into the pond when asked to give an interview. However, in the midst of media pressure, Ronaldo shone when he scored a brace and an assist to help Portugal draw 3-3 with Hungary and go on as the best 3rd place team.

Portugal entered the knockout round with the contempt of most opponents, after what they showed in the group stage. However, Ronaldo and his teammates with pragmatic play and stubbornness and bravery still overcame many obstacles to reach the semi-finals. In the semi-final against Wales, Ronaldo scored a goal to help Portugal win the final 2-0 to reach the final. But in the final against France, Ronaldo had just played for more than 7 minutes when he was fouled by French player Dimitri Payet and had to leave the field from the 25th minute and could not continue playing. But the final result Portugal beat France with a score of 1-0 and won Euro 2016. It can be said that helping Portugal win Euro 2016 is a big mark in CR7's career that he gave up. missed this chance at Euro 2004 in the final Portugal vs Greece.

Confederation Cup 2017

In Portugal's opening match of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup against Mexico on 17 June, Cristiano Ronaldo assisted Ricardo Quaresma's opening goal in a 2-2 draw. Three days later, he scored in a 1–0 win over hosts Russia. On 24 June, he scored from a penalty in a 4–0 win over New Zealand, which saw Portugal top the group and progress to the semi-finals of the tournament. With his 75th goal, Ronaldo also surpassed Sándor Kocsis as Europe's second international goalscorer of all time, behind only Ferenc Puskás. He was voted the best player in all three of Portugal's group stage matches. After Ronaldo left the tournament early after Chile beat Portugal 3–0 on penalties in the semi-finals, he was allowed to return home to care for his newborn children. As a result, he missed Portugal's third place match as Portugal beat Mexico 2–1 in extra time.

World Cup 2018

Portugal fell into a fairly easy group in the World Cup in Russia when only meeting a single strong team, Spain, the other two teams being Morocco and Iran. On 15 June 2018, Ronaldo became the oldest player to score a hat-trick at a World Cup when scoring all three goals to help Portugal draw Spain 3-3 in the opening match.. He also became the first Portuguese player to score goal in four different World Cups, and one of only four in history to do so.[180] His third goal of that game was a stunning free-kick from 30 yards with two minutes to go[181] This hat-trick also equalized  Ferenc's record Puskás as the European player with the most international goals with 84 goals.[182] In the second match of the group stage, Ronaldo scored the only goal to help Portugal beat Morocco 1-0, and also broke the record of  Puskás.[183] In the group stage final match against  Iran on June 25, Ronaldo unfortunately missed a penalty, leaving Portugal drawn 1-1 and accepted to finish the group stage in second place behind West Africa. Spain.[184] On June 30, Portugal lost 1-2 to  Uruguay in the round of 16 and officially left the World Cup playing field, this was a match where Ronaldo played poorly.

As a winger, Ronaldo possesses the qualities usually found in a natural striker. He can finish well with both feet, excelling in dead ball situations such as direct free kicks or penalties and individual handling situations before finishing.[186] He is also capable of headshot marksmanship thanks to his ideal height and physique (1m86).[186] As a result, in recent years he has been played more in the forward line by coaches. Ronaldo is not the type of player to sacrifice for the team, he often plays independently, receiving a lot of support from his teammates. This is evident when Wayne Rooney, Ronaldo's attacking partner at Manchester United, regularly scores in his absence.[186] Three-time Ballon d'Or winner Johan Cruyff commented that:

With his talent, I believe Ronaldo will continue to improve and win many individual and club titles. The only weakness in Ronaldo's way of playing is probably that he has few assists for his teammates

Ronaldo has very good individual technique with quick and skillful feet. As a result, he is often the target of fouls by opposing players.[189][190] However, he only really promoted his ability to handle the ball when there were gaps, and in narrow spaces, he was not appreciated. He has a running speed like a "supercar", his average speed is 33.6 km/h and ranks first in the Top 5 fastest players in world football by the German sports weekly. Der Spige. World record holder in the 100m track, Usain Bolt commented that Ronaldo has many qualities to become an excellent athlete in this subject. Bolt also once likened that:

If Cristiano Ronaldo had done athletics instead of football, he would have run faster than me!

Ronaldo also has a very good physical foundation, as evidenced by the 6 years playing at Manchester United, he played an average of 49 matches per season.[186] Here, he has had two thigh strains, one hip injury, two knee injuries and three ankle sprains, but never has he had to miss more than 15 days. His longest break (2 months) was after ankle surgery in early July 2008. When he moved to Real Madrid, he had only been sick once and had stretched his ankle ligaments,[103] but This did not stop Ronaldo from being out for more than a week. On May 9, 2016, Ronaldo was awarded the title of "Real Madrid's strongest player" by insurance company Satinas based on the number of 48 matches he played in the 2015-16 season. At that time, after 7 seasons with Real Madrid, only the first season Ronaldo played less than 40 matches. That year, he played only 35 matches for the royal team, but also scored 33 goals.

Not a famous player who plays bad, but Ronaldo has been hit with 11 red cards in his career due to his habit of eating and not being able to control himself when provoked and fouled by the opponent.[186][ 190] The number of red cards he must receive may be more than that, if not for the favor of the referees. In the 2015-16 season, there was a time when Ronaldo intentionally hit the opponent's player 5 times in just 3 months, but he was not punished even with a yellow card.

Ronaldo is often criticized for his habit of falling down to earn a penalty. In addition, he has also been criticized by coach Sir Alex Ferguson, teammates and the media as a selfish and somewhat arrogant person.

Ronaldo is also known for his strange free-kick style he invented, he often stands with his feet wide and takes a deep breath before running straight, when approaching the ball, his feet are firmly planted on the ground and keep his body. who is perpendicular to the ball before launching a straight shot as strong as a hammer. Ronaldo's free kicks often reach a speed of 100 km / h plus the flight trajectory is not comfortable at all, making goalkeepers difficult and very effective, as evidenced from the beginning of the career to Now he has 23 goals from the free kick.[195] Barcelona goalkeeper Víctor Valdés once lamented that: "If Ronaldo stands in front of a free kick, you will have to be prepared to face a ball that flies up to 32m / s". But Ronaldo's free kick requires force from very strong legs, so if it's just a little mistake when done, it will cause great danger to him. Former Manchester City manager Mark Hughes warned him: "The technique in Ronaldo's free-kick is different from anyone I've seen before. It always causes problems for goalkeepers. "[196]. In the friendly match against Bournemouth Club, Ronaldo's powerful 35m free kick broke the wrist of Charlie Silverwood (11 years old) who was present behind the goal.

However, when Ronaldo has turned 30 and his form cannot go up anymore, it will start to decline. In the 2014-15 season, Ronaldo scored 61 goals in all competitions, the best achievement of his career to date. Behind Ronaldo's brilliant achievement is a change in playing style, which shows that he is entering the slopes of his career. Opta's statistics show that of the 48 goals Ronaldo scored in La Liga in the 2014-2015 season, 41 goals (85%) were achieved with one-touch shots, 43 goals (90%) were made within 16m50. This shows that Ronaldo has gradually changed his style from a winger to a true striker. Ronaldo rarely performs situations of sloping balls and dribbling, but mainly lurks within 16m50 to match his current fitness. The impact of age makes Cristiano Ronaldo no longer have sprints at a distance of 30 meters or phases over the opponent's defender with speed. However, the Portuguese striker sees it as an opportunity to change himself. Ronaldo's goals since 2015 have mostly been from inside the box, and many of them have come from one-touch shots. It can be seen that CR7 is trying to perfect the finishing skill to become a penalty area killer. His image is reminiscent of Real legend Hugo Sanchez - who scored all his goals with a one-touch shot in the 1988-1989 season. At CR7's age, former legends like Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane are all about to retire. However, with the changes in playing style, the Portuguese superstar is showing his desire to continue to contribute in the top football environment and commit to the club.

In June 2016, in an interview with AS, Ronaldo expressed his desire to play for Real until the age of 40.

In short, Cristiano Ronaldo is a complete striker. He shoots well with both feet, good air combat, good speed, good passing, good free kick and penalty, good physical foundation, extraordinary jumping ability, leadership and special qualities. is the ability to shine when his team is in trouble.

Some comments about Ronaldo

“Ronaldo has great speed and is so skillful that it is impossible for any opponent to predict what he wants and will do. The special thing about Ronaldo is that he has equal weight on both feet when standing in front of the target. Very few players have this quality.”— tụMarcel Desailly

“Ronaldo has the technique, talent, speed and creativity that everyone loves. In addition, he has a desire to shine and always learns very quickly. In the world, I don't think there are many more excellent people to enjoy.[198]”— Bobby Charlton

“In the past, I didn't like Ronaldo because I thought he was just "playing" with the ball without the necessary efficiency. But now, when Ronaldo scores such an impressive goal, it is clear that I was wrong.[188]”—oMarcello Lippi

“In my opinion, he is better than George Best and Denis Law, two of the best and greatest players in United history.[188]”— Johan Cruyff

“The way Cristiano plays is enough to say that he will eventually become the greatest player in the history of the club.”— Denis Law

In October 2009, Ronaldo was invited to be the ambassador for Castrol lubricants globally. Explaining the reason for accepting the invitation to be this brand ambassador, he said: "I like them because they have the same passion to win and always strive with the highest performance as I do on the pitch." After that, he continued to sign an advertising contract with the sports beverage manufacturer Soccerade.

In February 2010, Ronaldo signed a contract worth 24 million euros for a period of 4 years (until 2014) with Nike.
