Ronaldo wins record fourth Golden Boot


Goal scoring machine Cristiano Ronaldo has won a record fourth Golden Boot award after leading all scorers in Europe’s domestic leagues last season.

Real Madrid’s hitman scored 48 goals in 35 Spanish league games to pick up the accolade for a third time during his spell with the club – the other Golden Boot award was won whilst playing at Manchester United in the 2007-2008 campaign.

The Portugal international insisted he is hungry for more titles – individual and collective.

“I am not satisfied, I always want more. I know I am the only one who has four boots, but I want more, I want a fifth one and sixth one, if possible. Obviously that means winning things collectively with the team, trophies, and for me Real Madrid is the greatest club in the world and it must win titles every year. This year will obviously be no different,” said the 30-year-old, who also became Real Madrid’s all-time leading scorer last month with 324 goals, surpassing Raul’s previous mark.

Ronaldo’s tally of 48 in a season is two goals short of the all-time record set by Lionel Messi for Barcelona in 2012.
