Cristiano Ronaldo’s Got Hops

Cristiano Ronaldo’s got hops: His tongue’s not out but Cristiano Ronaldo does a very good Air Jordan impression with this header. Maybe it’s all the fresh pasta he’s been eating in Italy that’s given his older legs a new life. The 34 year old Juventus star scores once again by nearly floating in the air with this header. Really, Ronaldo just loves to score goals and will do whatever it takes to reach the soccer ball first.

Ronaldo has a world of skills and talent but it’s perhaps his desire that separates from all the others except Messi. Although can Messi jump this high…? What’s Cristiano Ronaldo’s vertical leap…?

This is one wonderful cross as well by the Juventus left back Alex Sandro. Bending the ball in perfectly for Ronaldo to rise up and head home. Watch just how high Cristiano Ronaldo gets up to score with this header for Juventus. Cristiano Ronaldo’s got hops:

Here’s another video of the Ronaldo header:

“Ronaldo did something that you see in the NBA; he was up in the air for an hour and a half,” Sampdoria manger Claudio Ranieri, said, according to The Guardian. “There’s nothing you can say about it, you can only congratulate him and move on.”

Ronaldo as per The Guardian: “It was a good goal and I am glad to help the team with another three points. I had problems with my knee for a month but that has gone now and I feel good physically.”

Can you say vertical leap! Cristiano Ronaldo’s got hops and will win the header when he goes up against almost any defender in world football.

And when he scores, he jumps again. Even in his goal scoring celebration Ronaldo gets up in the air pretty high. “I started to say ‘si’, it’s like ‘yes’, when I was in Real Madrid,” Ronaldo said in an interview in 2019.
