Ruud Van Nistlerooy is a certified Champions League legend. In his five years at Manchester United, he was the competition’s top scorer three times, after that he moved to Real Madrid where he continued to bang them in. By the time he retired, in 2012, he had scored enough to be the 4th highest scorer in the competition’s history, behind only Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi and Raul.

We spent some time with Ruud on the first two legs of the UEFA Champions League Trophy Tour presented by Heineken, in Jamaica and Panama City, to talk about some of football’s biggest questions and some of his career highlights.
