Cristiano Ronaldo & the confusion surrounding all-time top goalscorer record

Cristiano Ronaldo has now been anointed the leading scorer in football history on three separate occasions as a result of the ongoing confusion about what number actually constitutes being the top goalscorer of all time.

After a hat-trick for Man Utd against Tottenham in the Premier League, Ronaldo has now scored 807 senior career goals.

An incredible tally, no doubt, but nobody seems to know for sure whether that is enough for the record because the goal tallies of Brazil icon Pele and Czech striker Josef Bican are so contested.

Ronaldo was firstly (and then secondly) crowned football’s record scorer back in a two-week stretch back in 2021.
