Ronaldo targeting Raul`s Real Madrid record
Madrid: Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed his ambition to surpass Raul as los Blancos` all-time record goalscorer.
The 28-year-old equalled Paco Gento`s record of 182 goals with his hat-trick over Sevilla on Saturday, to become the club`s sixth most prolific player.
However, the Portugal international has a significant job on his hands in order to emulate Raul`s haul of 323 Real Madrid goals, not that he is at all fazed by the size of the task.
Speaking to AS, Ronaldo said: "I`ve always said that records are there to be beaten, I don`t mean just by me but by the next generation of players who come along.
"I feel happy to have made history and I am delighted to have registered these figures. What I would like is to continue as I have until now and one day, be the first."
Ronaldo entered Madrid`s list of top 10 greatest goalscorers this season and has steadily surpassed Amancio (155) Emilio Butragueno (171) and Pirri (172).
Speaking to Real Madrid.com, Butragueno reflected on Ronaldo`s achievements and noted his importance to the club.
"We are all immensely proud that Cristiano Ronaldo is a Real Madrid player. I hope he remains here for many more years because he is such an important player for us," said Butragueno.
