Ronaldo joined Everton from Real Madrid and became a hit in the Premier League. He scored 3 goals in 5 games and completed 3 assists, which also made him the favorite player of Everton fans in the 2020-21 season. In addition, Ronaldo has played 422 minutes in the Premier League this season, while Zidane only gave him 419 minutes last season. This season, Ronaldo has created 15 scoring opportunities, tied with Salah for first place in the Premier League.
Under Ancelotti, Ronaldo scored 21 goals in 50 games and sent 23 assists. Some of Real Madrid's senior management expressed disappointment with Zidane's use of the Colombian midfielder.
"Aspen" pointed out that Ronaldo’s start of his Premier League career was a wake-up call for Real Madrid. Some information shows that Real Madrid did not even charge Ronaldo's transfer fee. Ronaldo reminded Bernabéu’s office of his outstanding performance time and time again that some important figures in the club have said that he has always been an excellent player.
Just over 30 days after the transfer, the Colombian player has proven that everyone who doubts him is wrong. He has been selected as the best signing of the summer several times. He is the best player against Tottenham, West Bromwich Albion, Crystal Palace and Brighton, and was nominated as the player of the month in September.
Ronaldo’s goal added pressure to Zidane, who failed to give the Colombian the best performance.
