At 32 years old, Cristiano Ronaldo has one of the most impressive collections of collective and individual titles in football’s history:
1 UEFA Euro Cup 3 UEFA Champions League titles 3 Premier League titles 1 La Liga title 3 FIFA Club World Cup titles 2 Copas del Rey 1 FA Cup 2 English League Cups 2 UEFA Supercups 1 Spanish Supercup 2 English Supercups
4 Ballon D’ors 4 Golden Boots 2 UEFA Player of the Year awards 1 FIFA Player of the Year award 1 FIFA The Best men’s football player award 1 FIFA Puskás award 1 UEFA Best player award 1 UEFA Forward of the year award Elected player of the Century by the Portuguese Football Federation
Even more impressive than the list above is the fact that the portuguese is the only football player in HISTORY to have ever won every major collective and individual title in TWO different clubs from TWO different leagues.

- my translation -
“It was a dream year”
“Madre mia, this was a match with a lot of suffering. We didn’t expect them to play that well. But we also played well, we suffered a bit - but finals are like that, you have to suffer.
“This is a trophy we wanted to win and we wanted to end the year in the best possible way. We are very happy.
“It was a dream year for me, and I didn’t expect to end it like this, winning the final, scoring three goals, helping Real Madrid. Yes. I’m very happy.
“People always expect more from Cristiano. I’m always trying to give my best, and if I don’t it’s because I can’t.
“I’m really very happy, it was a week full of joy: after winning the Ballon D'Or now the Club World Cup. This is a perfect end of the year for me and my teammates. In want to thank my teammmates once again, because without them Cristiano can’t win individual and team trophies. Again, I say thank you to them.”
