Lionel Messi on Rodaldo Departure

Lionel Messi Reveals What Real Madrid Lost With the Departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. Argentina star Lionel Messi has stated that​ Real Madrid lost 50 goals a season when Cristiano Ronaldo left the spanish giant to join ​Juventus in Italy.

The Portuguese superstar left the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer of 2018 after 9 incredible seasons with the Merengues.And left so much records that may be hard to be brocken by anyone that will ever wear the number 7 jearsy in realmadrid.

Indeed, the Portugal captain ended up as the highest goal-scorer in the history of the Los Blancos with 450 goals from just 438 matches. Immediately after his departure, the Galacticos endured a terrible campaign where they won no trophies and had to sack two managers before bringing Zinedine Zidane back.

Meanwhile, Messi has reflected upon the former Sporting star’s departure from the Santiago Bernabeu, claiming that the Galacticos immediately lost a source of 50 goals a season when Ronaldo joined the Old Lady.

Have Real Madrid lost a great deal with Cristiano’s departure?

“They have lost a great source of goals. That’s something obvious but he did offer plenty of other aspects but when a side loses a source of 50 goals a season, you’re going to notice that. Madrid do have fine players but Cristiano was a guarantee to bag 50 goals per campaign.

Messi’s analysis is on point as the Merengues have found it very difficult to find the net in the absence of their former number 7 – especially last season. This season, a lot of the goals have come from defence and midfield but their attackers are far away from coming close to Ronaldo’s numbers.
