Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo suggests UEFA rename the Champions League after him

Posted: 28 May 2018 Time: 17:46

Cristiano Ronaldo has suggested that UEFA name the Champions League trophy after him due to his incredible exploits in the competition after setting an eighth major record.

After scoring 15 goals en route to their third successive UEFA Champions League title, Ronaldo now holds eight incredible records in the competition.

Despite not scoring in the final against Liverpool, the 33-year-old added a record fifth title, along with a seventh top scorer award for his 15 strikes this season.

After being quizzed whether he was disappointed by not scoring against the Reds, the Real club-record scorer responded in typical Ronaldo fashion.

"Who's disappointed," he told reporters, as quoted by Sky Sports. "Perhaps they need to change the name of the Champions League to the CR7 Champions League.

"Who has the most titles and who has the most goals?"

Ronaldo UCL records:

  • Most titles: 5
  • Most wins: 97
  • Most goals: 120
  • Most finals scored in: 3
  • Most goals in a single season: 17
  • Most goals in a calender year: 19
  • Most consecutive games scored: 11
  • Most seasons finished as top scorer: 7
