Cristiano Ronaldo and recent criticism:
This year Cristiano Ronaldo started the season in his usual style of excellent performance and numerous goals. But towards the end of the season somehow he went a bit off form and his team Real Madrid suffered.
Real Madrid won Super Cup and Club World Cup in 2014-15. But last season Madrid could not show any magic. Till December Ronaldo was in excellent form then somehow he was seen dull in the first two months of this year.
Some fans feel it is his personal problems that affected his form and performance. Ronaldo went through a bitter break up with his long term girlfriend Russian model Irina Shayk, who accused him for infidelity.
Though from March his performance improved his team could not shine like before. In his defense we can say he did everything possible to save the situation but Real Madrid turn out to be a one man army. Many injured players add to the worries, though he unfortunately got most of the criticism.
The worst part of being a hero is his larger than life existence. At times we forget to realize the fact that he is just a human being like us with flesh and blood.
Apart from the unnecessary criticism he faced, the individual performance of the man is still intact. Another feather added to the crown when Cristiano Ronaldo Ended Season with 66 Goals.
