After five years with Inter, Ronaldo decided on a new challenge by becoming the latest Galactico at Real Madrid. He was one of those players that Florentino Perez had always loved and after the World Cup final how would you not get Ronaldo, especially when he scored 2 goals against Germany. Ronaldo proved himself worthy of his galactic status coming off the bench scoring twice on his debut.
But perhaps he is best remembered at the Madrid Club for his role in the destruction of Manchester United in the Champions League quarter finals at the Old Trafford. The fact that he scored a hat trick away at the Old Trafford in a huge game was just incredible. And to see Manchester United fans applause and give a standing ovation to a rival player really shows how magical Ronaldo really was. Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima a striker touched with genius, truly a Fenómeno.
