Guillem Balague has made a shocking remark on the recent Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo after labeling the Portuguese star the ‘WORST’ striker in Europe.
Ronaldo has been thoroughly out of form this season as he has managed to score just 8 goals in 17 appearances this season in the Spanish League, as the La Liga champions currently sit fourth in the table. The 33-year-old superstar guided the Los Blancos to their second consecutive Champions League as well and relished the prospect of playing in the prestigious European competition as he has already netted 9 times in six games.
And Spanish journalist Guillem Balague has not been afraid speak the truth after blasting the winger as Madrid are struggling this campaign and their talisman is not performing to the best of his abilities in the league. His statistics are not great for the Madrid faithful after Balague has analyzed the Euro 2016 winners’ less than impressive season.
What Balague Said-
The highly respected pundit in Spain, Balague, was on Sky Sports and made these scathing comments, “In La Liga, he’s (Ronaldo) the least effective of all strikers in terms of shots on goal and goals scored, He has one of the worst conversion rates in Europe as well which is unbelievable.”
However, Balague did give Ronaldo the credit he deserves by adding, “But you can look at it in a different way. He’s scored 20 goals this season already, which is the same as last season at this stage. Eight of them in the league, certainly he should improve on that.
You start to think if he’s economizing his efforts or dedicating more in the Champions League than he is in the league. The stats prove in the Champions League that he’s still very lethal.”
Have To Agree With Balague on this one, Ronaldo does prefer the grandest of stages and the Champions League certainly bring out the best in the former Manchester United attacker. But Ronaldo must give importance to the League as well because the holders of the trophy are in danger of missing out on a Champions League spot for next season.
