Though he was not able to deliver a European Cup in his first season with the Old Lady.

But was the only player to score for them in the knockout stage with 5 goals and ended with 6 goals in nine Champions League games.

And then went on to win the Nations League with Portugal, adding another trophy to his haul.

While Ronaldo was finding success in Italy, his old club were struggling without him.

They went through three different managers and also had fans turned against them mid-way through the season.
