London, Mar 25(ANI): Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has set a new record after he became the fastest player to reach 100 goals in the Spanish league.
The record comes only after three days of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi becoming their all time highest scorer, The Daily Mail reports.
Ronaldo surpassed former record-holder and Madrid great Ferenc Puskas on Saturday when he scored a brace in Madrid’s 5-1 thrashing of Real Sociedad at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
He has now taken his tally to 101 goals in 92 league matches, whereas Puskas had taken 105 matches to score his first 100 goals.
The former Manchester United player Ronaldo is primed to have his best season ever for Madrid with 45 goals in all competitions so far.
After an 80 million pound move from Manchester United to Madrid in the summer of 2009, Ronaldo scored 26 league goals in his first season. (ANI)
