out of the Champions League and “goodbye” to an impressive brand

Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United were left empty-handed in this first part of the year. Following their elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Atlético Madrid on Tuesday, the Red Devils confirmed that they will not win titles in the 2021/22 season: out on the road for Orejona, their chances are impossible in the Premier League and they have already been left out of the FA Cup and EFL Cup. A real disappointment…

For CR7, who despite being the top scorer in the European Championship could not turn around with the Portugal team, it means “goodbye” to an impressive brand. It is that in the last 12 years, the Portuguese had not spent a single season without lifting at least one trophy. The last precedent had been in 2009/10, when he scored 33 goals in 35 games, but also lost La Liga -Barsa was champion-, Champions and Copa del Rey with Manuel Pellegrini’s Real Madrid.

Since that time, always speaking at the club level, the 37-year-old striker turned around with Merengue and also with Juventus uninterruptedly, although in this season, just the one that marked his return to Manchester United, nothing will be the same. And the outlook for him could worsen: although the World Cup in Qatar is played next semester, in the current one it could be left out of the World Cup event if Portugal does not get its ticket in the playoff of the UEFA Qualifiers -with chances of facing Italy in the final-.

The last history of CR7 without Olympic laps dates back to when he played for Real Madrid.
