Debunking the Myth that Ron was never a midfielder

Likes and retweets are all appreciated😍
Actually, this wouldn't be something we debate on provided your birth wasn't delayed😭 but it is what it is and am going to enlighten you newbies.😁
Take a seat and watch cox I won't be repeating myself after this, so I need your full attention. You can pause the p*rn for now😉
Back in 2003 when Ron was signed by united, Beckham had just been sold and left a berth on the right side of the mid. Ron came and took over his position as well as his shirt(the famous No 7). He was a kid with dazzling skills and swept fans off their feet with his play on debut
In his first season, he won united player of the year while scoring only 6goals in 40appearances 😭(can you explain to me how a forward can win by scoring this few) and he won this as a midfielder(still the only outfield player to win the award most times)
In his second year at United(2004), Ronaldo was named in UEFA TOTY as a Right midfielder, this time winning it without scoring a goal in the UCL(i mean how can a supposed forward make it to UEFA Toty without scoring a goal) yes, you were thinking right😉 he was built different😁
Also won the Bravo award in 2004 which is given to most outstanding young players (while scoring 9goals in 50games). Now to the point, if you know SAF well and watched his united era then you will know his most used formation is 4-4-2 which means a 4man midfield
In 4-4-2, There are RM/LM whose jobs is to operate from the flanks, run towards the defense with pace and dribbling to create chances and make crosses. Ron partnered with giggs in this position (RM/LM). And yes, RM/LM are also called wingers cox they operate from the wing(flanks)
His primary role wasn't to score but to provide crosses and create chances while also terrorizing the defense, also until 2006..the only bad part of Ronaldo ball was his end product(finishing). He was just a teenager who wanted to enjoy his dribbling & showboating, not scoring
Here is a video of SAF talking about Ronaldo who was close to breaking Lampard record of goals as a midfielder(he went on to break it)
In 2011, Epl reached a landmark of 20,000 goals. @goal Made an article to celebrate it by stating out the most goals scored in each position in epl last 2decades. This was in 2011 before Goal hired dumb admins I think 😁
Ronaldo broke George Best records of most goals in a season for United(scoring 42) officially still playing as a midfielder. Although, at this time..he was already getting used as a forward in many matches(this doesn't change anything, kdb featured as a striker yesterday too)
In 2018, Man united officially released a list of their all time greatest epl XI
Ronaldo was voted as best Right midfielder in the club's history.…
In 2019, Cristiano was named the best foreign midfielder in epl history by Allan shearer, Gullit, Sutton and Rory Smith but obviously Ganesh on FT knows better because he's a 12yrs old kid…
In 2014, BR football published an article on 5 best midfielders in SAF era
As we all know, BR are hardcore Ron haters...there's no way you can tell me he was sneaked in 😂…
BR football in 2012 released a top 10 list of best midfielders in United history And Top 7 playmakers in their history (…)

Here u go…
Now let's talk about how barca fans comes with his united profile to prove he was a forward 😂
Firstly, u have to know your last position for a club is always updated in your profile. Bale was a defender before turning forward at spur but his profile says forward
Also here is Barcelona president admitting Ronaldo was more of a wide player than Gaucho but Barça rats will tell you otherwise 😭😭
Also, I have seen many Barça fans bring his position played from tfm.
Tfm only updated his forward positions and are yet to add games he played as a midfielder, in the pic below, the total club games is 677 while Ron has played 868 club games. That's 192 midfield games left.
Also, Ronaldo has scored 657 club goals and only 594 is updated in the pic(63g left) , which means in the 192games he played for United and sporting as mainly a mid, he scored 63goals. Also be aware he played many games for Portugal as a a RM too which is not counted here at all
For context, Xavi scored 85goals in 757games for Barça as a mid

Ronaldo scored 63goals in 192games mainly as a mid(Without being switched)

Impressive right? 😌
BR football released their list of EPL greatest XI in 2011

Yet again, Ronaldo made it to the list as a RM 😭…
If you are yet to be convinced Ronaldo played as a midfielder, plz am a preacher of violence 😭 and can't afford to stress further. Blame two things
1. Your p*rent for delaying your existence
2. Your delusion

Now get back to watching your p*rn, you virgins😂
