    There is an irony watching this when you realise it was bierhoff one of the greatest headers of all time who outscored R9 in Serie A 1997/98

    Afforded a big chance like this bierhoff would have put it away with his eyes shut.
    R9 on the other hand demonstrating his usual ineptitude in the air

    most of his headers the vast majority in fact were not in Europe’s top 5 leagues nor the champions league
    @Trachta10 can confirm this?

    ......... I think so ... that Ronaldo Nazario was really superbly overrated about his quality finishing accuracy .... he didn't .. none goal of overhead kicks ... classical volleys ...... 0 . 67 % average of goals in his whole career .... ..Por example .... C. Ronaldo ... Mbappe .... Van Basten ... Puskas .... Kocsis ... Gerd Muller .... Pelé ... Romário .... Messi .... Haaland ... Lewa .... etc ..... so many many players has average of goals .... extremelly better than him ( Ronaldo Nazario ) . !

    Part 6 extended



    Below are probably the two most famous examples of R9 dribbling past multiple players in his inter Milan career

    As far as I know they are also the only two times he dribbled past 3 players while at inter Milan(definitely at least in 1997/98)

    the end part of each dribble is literally never shown on those fanboy compilations nor is the level of opponent

    the first ‘iconic’ dribble was against Brescia on his Serie A debut


    5:12

    Brescia were relegated in Serie A 1997/98

    and the other was against FC Neuchâtel xamax in the UEFA cup

    11:10


    IMG_2660.gif

    Xamax were relegated from the Switzerland first division in 1997/98

    Is this meant to make him better than Erling Haaland?

    not saying he wasn’t by the way

    but if he was it surely shouldn’t have anything to do with him playing hero ball before being dispossessed by completely sub standard defences.

    https://www.planetfootball.com/nostalgia/tribute-luc-nilis-loved-ronaldo-best-striker-villa-never#:~:text=The great Ronaldo once said,had reason to feel excited.

    Rijkaard was on his last legs in 1994/95
    You can only imagine how R9 would be perceived playing in the same division at the same time as a prime version of Riijkard,Gullit,Maradona,Mancini,Baggio,matthaus,Baresi etc


    He would not even make the top 10

    the mythology of the untouchable prime is something that needs to be put to bed once and for all
