EPL: Gary Lineker reacts as Cristiano Ronaldo makes history

Former Barcelona and England striker, Gary Lineker has hailed Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo for his record-breaking 700th career club goal against Everton at the weekend.

Ronaldo was once again named on the bench for Man United’s Premier League away clash against Frank Lampard’s side on Sunday.

Man United manager, Erik ten Hag opted to start Antony, Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford in attack for his team.

However, Martial sustained an injury early in the first half and Ronaldo came in as a replacement with the score being tied at 1-1.

Casemiro fed Ronaldo through after winning the ball back inside his own half, and the former Real Madrid attacker made no mistake in smashing the ball past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with his weaker left foot just before the half-time whistle.

His goal against Everton means he became the first-ever player to score 700 goals in club football.

Reacting, Lineker was left fascinated by Ronaldo’s incredible achievement as he tweeted after the game: “700 club goals for the incredible @cristiano. That’s 35 goals a season for 20 years. Ridiculous!”
