Former Brazil star Ronaldo wishes he had scored his incredible solo-goal against Compostela for Real Madrid, rather than rivals Barcelona.
In 1996, the future World Cup winner netted a sensational strike for Bobby Robson’s Barca, running from inside his own half, past a number of defenders and finishing low into the net.
Despite his incredible career, it is a goal Ronaldo is widely associated with – but he has now admitted he would rather have netted a goal of that quality for Madrid, who he later joined in 2002 after a spell with Inter.
“It was a lovely goal, but the truth is I would have preferred to score it with Real Madrid,” he told Movistar.
“The only pity is that I was not at Madrid when I scored it.”
Ronaldo had just one season with Barca, firing 47 goals in 49 games in all competitions.
