"FIFA" shocks Ronaldo in the title of "best goalscorer in history"
The Spanish newspaper "AS" said that the staggering number that Cristiano Ronaldo scored with 760 goals, after his goal against Napoli yesterday during the Italian Super Cup 2-0 victory, raised some doubts about Ronaldo's eligibility for the title of the best goalscorer in football history.
She stated that the official FIFA website shocked the player by doubting his eligibility for the title.
Ronaldo had surpassed the previous record registered in the name of the historical Czech international Joseph Pekan with 759 goals, but FIFA believes that Pecan, who played for Austria and Czechoslovakia (formerly) between 1933 and 1949, scored 805 goals in 530 games, not just 759 goals.
She said that officials in charge of statistics in "FIFA" believe that Ronaldo is not the best goal scorer in history, although they are not sure of the true number of goals Pecan.
Ronaldo scored 760 goals, including 311 in the "LaLiga" and 134 goals in the European Champions, 84 in the English League, as well as 102 international goals with Portugal, and his goals remain with the biggest Real, 450 in nine years.
As for Juventus, he scored 32 goals in his last 32 matches, at the age of 35.
