There was a buzz surrounding Real Madrid’s arrival in Mallorca, and in particular, Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival. And Mr. Ronaldo didn’t disappoint his fans, at least if you’re looking at it from a Real Madrid fan’s perspective, as he scored a hat trick to keep Madrid in the hunt with Barcelona for the La Liga title.
Real Madrid beat Mallorca 4-1 due to Ronaldo’s relentless desire to score and desire to secure the win for his team – something I’m guessing he learned from Ferguson and playing at Manchester United. He’s scored a ton of goals these past few weeks, putting Madrid on his back so to speak. If there’s one player who deserves all the money he’s making, it just might be Cristiano. Well, Messi too.
