Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, last night, became the first player to receive the Golden Boot award four times for being the top goalscorer in Europe.
Ronaldo scored a mammoth 48 goals in 35 games to win the award last night for the top goalscorer in leagues across Europe.
The Portuguese superstar was accompanied at the awards ceremony by his mother, his son, the Real Madrid manager Rafa Ben tez, club president Florentino P rez and Portugal’s ambassador to Spain.

Ronaldo wants more
The Portuguese, however, said that he was not content with just this one record, vowing to add more individual and team awards.
“I am not satisfied, I want more. I’m the only one that has four but I want the fifth and the sixth,” he said at the ceremony in Madrid, as quoted saying by Goal.com.
“Real Madrid are the biggest club in the world and we always have to win titles.
“I want the Champions League, La Liga and the Copa del Rey.”
Tough challenge for Ronaldo for fifth Golden Boot
This was Ronaldo’s third Golden Boot with Real Madrid, with the other one coming when he was at Manchester United in the 2007-08 season — widely acclaimed as the season during which he cemented his position as one of the world’s best.
The Portuguese is also now the all-time leading goal-scorer for Spanish giants Real Madrid after overtaking the Legendary Raul Gonzalez in September, having plundered an incredible 324 goals in a total tally of games 2/3rd times less than that number.
Ronaldo, however, faces a stiff challenge from the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and usual suspects Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi to continue his winning streak this season. He has scored five so far, with Lewandowski already having bagged 12 goals.
