Cristiano Ronaldo has netted 7 goals in his first 10 league games since Juventus 60 years – a feat no Juve player has achieved since John Charles. Tévez, Inzaghi and Higuaín managed 6.
Cristiano Ronaldo is taking no time at all to register historic figures with Juventus. Ronaldo was on target twice in the 1-2 win at Empoli at the weekend to take his overall tally to seven goals in 10 Serie A outings – a feat which no Juve player has achived since the great John Charles. Welsh striker Charles, who ended the 1957-Eight season as the top scorer in the division with 28 goals also scored seven goals in his first 10 games.
The record which Cristiano shares with John Charles is much more spectacular when put into context in comparision with the other great forwards who’ve played for Juventus. Three Juve players hit six goals in the first 10 Serie A fixtures – Gonzalo Higuaín (2013-14, ending the season on 24), Carlos Tévez (2013-14, ending the season on 19) and Filippo Inzaghi (1997-8, ending the season on 18). Alessandro Del Piero, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Trezeguet managed to score 5 goals in the opening 10 league games, ending the campaign with Juventus on 21, 16 and 14 goals respectively.
