Let me take you back to 1996-97. Barcelona were being managed by Bobby Robson and Ronaldo was in the form of his life. 47 goals in 49 games, 34 in 37 league appearances. Four hat-tricks. Seven braces.
He not only scored goals bet made memories scoring goals like this against Compostela.
Marcus Speller thought he was like a wild beast
That goal Ronaldo scored for Barcelona against Compostela where he bursts past about 4 or 5 men like he’s a wild beast leaving Bobby Robson in sheer awe on the sidelines.
He was the best Rupert Fryer had ever seen
For reasons more personal and emotive, Ronaldo’s 1996–1997 La Liga season for Barcelona. I’d never seen anything like him before, and haven’t since. He remains the best I’ve ever seen. He was just remarkable. He was so good it felt unfair that he was even allowed to play. It was like at lunch-break when that kid from the four years ahead inexplicably joins your game and nobody can get the ball off him.
Ron did it wearing the 1996-97 Barcelona shirt by Kappa. The away shirt was Aqua Marine colour with Barca and the Kappa logo imprinted on the body of the shirt. The green and purple design is absolutely banging.
