‘What a beautiful number’: Ronaldo’s special message after 700th club goal of his career

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the 700th club goal of his career after coming on as a substitute for Manchester United against Everton in the Premier League on Sunday.

The 37-year-old Portugal striker latched onto a through-ball from Casemiro and slotted a finish under Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the 44th minute for what proved to be the decisive goal in United’s 2-1 win.

It was his 144th goal for United across two spells at the club. He also netted 450 for Real Madrid, 101 for Juventus and five for Sporting.

A day after breaking the record, the Portuegeues forward shared a special message to his fans on social media.

“700 club goals. What a beautiful number we’ve achieved together! Thank you to all my teammates, coaches, clubs, family & friends and of course my fans. United we continue!,” Ronaldo said in his post.

Ronaldo came on as a substitute for Anthony Martial at Goodison Park after again starting on the bench.
