Cristiano Ronaldo - Memorable actions with Manchester United:
If there's one thing that hasn't changed in Ronaldo that's his full name: Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro. He is named after the actor Ronald Reagan, who was also been the President of the United States many years ago. Cristiano was born on February 5, 1985 in Funchal, Portugal. When we talk about Ronaldo, it is impossible not to mention his branded nickname: CR7. This is a nickname that has been with him for many years, mainly because he wore United's iconic number 7 jersey in his first spell at the club.
Every since he was a child, Ronaldo always showed a special talent with the ball close to his feet. From 1992 to 1995, he played in an amateur team called Andorinha. Two years later, Ronaldo would join a bigger club in the island, Nacional.
At the age of 12, Ronaldo signed a contract with Sporting CP and the transfer fee was around 1.500,00 EUR. Before that, he had to go through a rigorous examination for 3 days...
Ronaldo was born in Portugal, in a poor but very humble family. His childhood was not as happy as the one many children of his age go through. His parents were ordinary manual workers, as his mother worked as a cook and his father was a seasonal gardener.
Ronaldo's has 3 siblings (2 sisters and 1 brother) and he is the youngest son in the family. At the age of 11, Ronaldo went through a big event in his life, which was his parents' separation. His family also disbanded from this point. After that, Ronaldo's father, due to a heavy alcoholism problem, died at the age of 52 with liver failure. As a teenager, Ronaldo was not loved by his teachers and friends at school either. He had very poor academic performances and often got involved into fights.
Ronaldo has gone through a long journey of training and fighting to conquer the world. Since the very beginning, his objective has been to become the best player in the world. Let's look back at an exciting journey that Ronaldo has gone through so far...
Ronaldo started playing football very early, when he was around 8 years old. At that time, he played in a football team in his hometown called Andorinha. A few years later, Ronaldo's reputation resounded throughout Portugal. He was noticed by the owner of the Sporting Lisbon team and became an official member of this team after spending only 3 days training in the club. However, few people know Ronaldo has gone through heart condition to compete. He has spent a period of resilience when he was both healing and practicing...
One of the first persons to discover how incredibly talented Ronaldo was and to actually attempt to sign him from Sporting was Liverpool head coach, Gérard Houllier, when CR7 was only 16 years old. However, the Liverpool directors refused to sign him, as Cristiano was too young and needed a some time to develop his body and skills. Not that long after, Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, decided to make a move for Ronaldo during the summer of 2003, right after Sporting had beaten United 3-1 in the opening ceremony of their new stadium Estádio José Alvalade, in Lisbon.
