Ronaldo, Lampard, Mourinho receive Guinness World Records certificates

Cristiano Ronaldo, Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho, are some of the football stars that were honoured in the new Guinness World Records book.

Former Chelsea midfielder, Lampard, was awarded for the most Premier League teams scored against, after he netted against the Blues while on loan at Manchester City. The record was previously held by Andy Cole.

“I set goals throughout my career to break records and this is one I never imagined to get. I am a big fan of the books and always read the books with my daughters before bed so to feature in it is amazing,” Lampard said.

“It was a weird feeling when I scored but it did get me the record so I am also very happy with the goal.”

His former boss, Mourinho, picked up four different awards. He was presented with certificates for:

  • The most Points in a Premier League season (95),
  • Most Champions League’s won at different clubs (two),
  • Youngest manager to reach 100 Champions League games (49 years 12 days)
  • Most games unbeaten at home in the Premier League (77).

 

The 52-year-old said afterwards: “The fact that I can hang these awards in my office is nice. It’s something fun and as a kid you could never imagine that one day you would be in Guinness World Records Book. I’m now more focused on winning the next game than on what I’ve done in the last 10 or 15 years.”

 

Ronaldo was awarded for the most hat-tricks in La Liga and is also the most followed athlete and person on both Facebook (over 100 million likes) and Twitter (over 27m followers).
