Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney are two of the most celebrated football players of their generation. While both have enjoyed tremendous success on the pitch, a recent statistic has shed light on just how prolific Ronaldo has been in his later years.
It has been revealed that Ronaldo, who is currently 36 years old, has scored an impressive 376 goals after turning 30. This is a staggering achievement and highlights his ability to continue performing at the highest level well into his thirties.
What makes this statistic even more impressive is that Ronaldo’s post-30 goal tally is higher than the total number of goals Rooney scored in his entire career. Rooney, who retired in January 2021 at the age of 35, scored 366 goals across his club and international career.
This comparison showcases Ronaldo’s longevity, dedication, and consistency, as he continues to break records. The Portuguese star has played for some of the biggest clubs in the world, including Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus, and has scored at an incredible rate throughout his career.
