Cristiano Ronaldo sent message by Man Utd team-mates Antony and Alejandro Garnacho after scoring 700th league goal


MANCHESTER UNITED new-boy Antony and academy star Alejandro Garnacho have congratulated team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo on reaching 700 club goals.

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo, 37, scored only his second goal of the season on Sunday.

But it happened to be a very important one as he reached 700 career club goals.

Ronaldo netted in the first half of United’s 2-1 away win against Everton.

His team-mates celebrated the milestone with him in the changing room, posing for a big group photo as well as having giant gold balloons in the background.

And team-mate Antony, who scored the equaliser for the Red Devils at Goodison Park, took to social media to congratulate Ronaldo.

The big-money Brazilian signing said: “What an honor for me!! Congratulations, @Cristiano!!

“Another great brand in a career full of achievements and achievements!! May we enjoy this even more together!!”

Gushing youth star Garnacho, who has got up close with both Ronaldo and international team-mate Lionel Messi, congratulated his “idol”.

Re-sharing the group photo, Garnacho said: “Breaking record after record, congrats idol @cristiano.”

The Argentine has played just 21 minutes of first-team football this season, with just one of those minutes coming in the Premier League.

Ronaldo thanked fans after reaching the “beautiful” milestone.

He said on Instagram: “What a beautiful number we’ve achieved together!

“Thank you to all my team-mates, coaches, clubs, family & friends and of course my fans. United we continue!”

Ronaldo could find himself being handed more minutes by new boss Erik ten Hag going forward, with in-form Anthony Martial injured.

The Frenchman picked up a knock in the win over Everton.

And the severity of the injury is still unknown, according to Ten Hag.

The Dutchman said: “I have to see.

“I cannot tell what it is, how serious it is, let’s wait the first 24 hours [to see] how serious it is and then I can give an answer.

“Everyone has to take responsibility and Martial also took his responsibility by giving the assist on the first goal.”
