Has Cristiano Ronaldo ever played in the Europa League?

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates the Champions League 5

Cristiano Ronaldo is widely regarded as one of the best, if not the best, footballers in the history of world football.

The Portuguese striker is the international player with the most goals scored ever, with 115 goals in 186 appearances for his country, while scoring nearly 700 goals during his career at Manchester United, Real Madrid, Sporting Lisbon and Juventus.

He is also the holder of 5 Ballon D’or awards, the second most in the award’s history (behind Lionel Messi), as well as 5 Champions League titles, the most by any player ever.

Having broken in at Sporting Lisbon in the 2002/03 season, Ronaldo has played in every Champions League season since then, scoring 140 goals and 181 appearances, both tournament records.

As a result, it probably comes as no surprise to learn that the iconic figure has never appeared in the Europa League or the European League of Conferences, the two rankings that fall under major European competition.

First time for everything?

That could change, however, if the Portuguese veteran remains a Manchester United player in the summer.

Currently, the Red Devils are sitting outside the Champions League qualification spots via the Premier League, while they cannot qualify for the first European Championship by any other means after being expelled from the Champions League by Atletico Madrid.

This could leave Ronaldo staring at the barrel of the season in the Europa League, something he would almost certainly be keen to avoid. Now he’s 37, and he knows he doesn’t have many campaigns among Europe’s left-handed elite.
