Ronaldo Out Earned Three Countries In 2015

Cristiano Ronaldo has just revealed his 2015 earnings in response to tax-fraud allegations. And, while we knew his net worth made him the richest footballer in the world, we didn't know just how much money Ronaldo makes. It's shocking, to say the least.

In 2015, Cristiano’s earnings (after tax) made him the highest paid athlete in the world. So, exactly how much did Cristiano Ronaldo earn in 2015?

He Grew Up Alongside Messi And Debuted With Him, But Even Oriol Riera Cannot Explain His Greatness

Oriol Riera, in all good sense, has had a very good professional career. He’s achieved success in the lower divisions of Spain with clubs like Cultural Leonesa and Alcorcon, and he’s secured his role as a grafting, workmanlike forward in La Liga with stints at Osasuna, his current club, and Deportivo La Coruna.

However, history will always remember Riera best as the answer to an obscure piece of pub trivia, for Riera made his senior Barca debut alongside a 16-year-old who was making his own premiere, one Lionel Messi.

Liverpool Keeper Loris Karius Shows He’s The Man For The Job By Roasting Gary Neville

No goalkeeper is immune to the vast amount of criticism that will inevitably come their way. Whether being rounded on for a costly howler, unavoidable inexperience or just a perceived general lack of command, a keeper's life is an incessant trial by fire.

A 20-year-old David de Gea making consistent Premier League appearances for Manchester United during his first season in England was a “dodgy keeper” that needed “to grow into his kit”. 

Adorable Little Mascot Ruthlessly Dabs On Opposing Goalkeeper

Oh no.

Heidenheim goalkeeper Kevin Muller has been roasted, burned to a crisp by a young mascot. Before Heidenheim played Hannover in the German 2. Bundesliga last Friday, Muller was dabbed on.

Muller just wanted a handshake. Instead he got the dab. This is what you get for trying to be polite. Kids these days. No respect.

To add injury to insult, Muller ended up leaving the game with a cut on his neck. It wasn't as bad as it looked, but Muller ended up with 13 stitches and some very wounded pride.

Marco Reus Would Be A Ballon D’Or Finalist If He Could Stay Healthy

A torn ankle ligament, adductor problems, a toe injury, hamstring injuries, osteitis pubis and muscular problems: all have conspired to give us less Marco Reus in our lives than we should ever be happy with. The 27-year-old doesn’t even have 30 caps for Germany yet, which is an offense to the footballing gods.

FC Barcelona Invite Chapecoense To Play In A Preseason Friendly

Neymar And Ronaldo Are The Two Most Business Savvy Players In The Game

Are you a Neymar fan? Are you an even bigger Cristiano Ronaldo fan? Is it your dream to get something signed by your favorite star? Well, it can certainly happen...for a price. The Spanish newspaper El Confidential revealed that Neymar and Ronaldo recently signed several stickers for their fans. But did you know they are making a small fortune on every single autograph they sign?

Cristiano Ronaldo May Or May Not Have Cheated On His Taxes

Cristiano Ronaldo just has to try to outdo Lionel Messi in everything, doesn't he?

The Real Madrid star is now under investigation for cheating on his taxes and could even face jail time. Like Messi, though, even if Ronaldo is convicted he will probably have his sentence suspended, as he would be a first-time offender.

Real Madrid vs. Borussia Dortmund Was A Game Both Teams Deserved To Win

What the hell, let's just run it back!

Just play if over again tomorrow. Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are uniquely constructed to bring the best out of each other, for whatever reason, and Wednesday's Champions League tie was no different.

Real Madrid went up 2-0 via Karim Benzema scoring on great passes from Dani Carvajal and James Rodriguez, respectively.
