Jew, can you specify your time
frame? Personally, I think Ronaldo never really backed up what people felt he was all about. Except maybe in the 2002 World Cup, but that cup was the worst cup ever, and of course, if the ref didn?t blow the whistle on that phantom call in the Belgium goal while it was still 0x0, then I think no one would ever call this guy greatest of anything.
on par with pele and maradona.
It's not simple to say what if's in terms of his career. What if he didn't have a nervous breakdown in 98 before the finals due to the brutal pressure? He had a crazy WC up to that point but he was too young to handle the whole thing. What if he didn't miss two years at Inter due to horrific injuries on his knee? His resume still speaks for itself
42 goals in 46 games for PSV
34 goals in 37 games for barca
25 goals in 32 games for Inter his first season
68 goals in 97 games for Real his first three season after two years off
player of the decade in Serie A 1996-2006 among other personal accomplishments.
played at the four of the best teams in his career and has been successful in each one (not so much at Milan but he still helped us win the CL by providing relief in Serie A for Inzaghi, Gilardino and Kaka to focus on the tournament)
