Juventus hands Ronaldo ‘GOAT 770’ shirt

Juventus has handed Cristiano Ronaldo a special ‘GOAT 770’ shirt to mark his record breaking goal scoring achievements.

The Portuguese superstar was handed the shirt before their shock loss to Benevento.

The Juventus talisman was congratulated by Brazilian legend Pele for smashing his record after a blistering hat-trick against Cagliari last week.

Juventus commemorates Ronaldo

Ronaldo took his tally to 770 and was presented with a commemorative top by Juve president Andrea Agnelli.

However, many thought he had already surpassed all-time great Pele in January.

The 80-year-old’s official tally stands at 757.

However, Ronaldo revealed he did not celebrate overtaking the all-time great until now.

This was because the World Cup winner bagged ten extra goals that are not formally included.

But the day took a serious turn for the worse for Ronaldo and Co as a 1-0 defeat at home put a serious dent in their title aspirations.

Juventus are targeting for an incredible tenth successive Scudetto.

But defeat to struggling Benevento has left them ten points behind pace-setters Inter Milan.

Ronaldo thought he had registered goal 771 but was flagged offside with Juve also having a penalty decision for handball overturned by VAR.

Andrea Pirlo’s side are third in the table and only have 11 games left in the league season to ensure their decade of dominance continues.

Adolofo Gaich’s 69th minute winner was enough for the visiting minnows to take all three points – with their only shot on target.

Gaich took advantage of Arthur’s awful pass before slotting past former Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny.
