A Short Story Of Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most popular soccer players in the world. He has over 200 million social media followers. The name Cr7 given by his fans became very popular. He is the most popular and richest athlete of all time, but it takes just about everything. Therefore, we will look at the success story of Cristiano Ronaldo and his golden rules for success.
Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro was born in San Pedro, Funchal, on the Portuguese island of Madeira, and grew up in Santo Antonio, Funchal. He is the fourth and youngest child of Maria Dolores dos Santos Viveiro da Aveiro (born 1954), a chef, and José Dinis Aveiro (1953–2005), a municipal gardener and part-time assistant. His paternal great-grandmother Isabelle da Piedade was from the island of Sao Vicente, Cape Verde.
He has an older brother Hugo (born 1975) and two older sisters Elma (born 1973) and Liliana Katya “Katya” (born 1977), a singer. Ronaldo grew up in a Catholic and poor family, sharing a room with his siblings. As a child, Ronaldo played for the amateur team Andorinha from 1992 to 1995, where his father was an outfitter, and then spent two years with the national team. In 1997, at the age of 12, he went on a three-day trial with a sports spy who signed him and received a £1,500 reward.
He subsequently moved from Madeira, near Lisbon, to join other young athletes at the club’s football academy. By the age of 14, Ronaldo believed that he could play semi-professionally, and agreed with his mother to drop out of school to focus entirely on football. Popular with the other students at the school, he was expelled from school after throwing a chair at his teacher, which he said was “disrespectful” to him. However, a year later, he was diagnosed with palpitations, a condition that could cause him to quit playing football.
Ronaldo underwent heart surgery to cauterize several heart pathways with a laser, which altered his resting heart rate. He was released from the hospital hours after the procedure and resumed training a few days later. At the age of 16, Ronaldo has promoted to the youth sports team thanks to the team’s first coach, Laszlo Bologna, who was impressed by his dribbling. He subsequently became the first player to play for under-16, under-17, and under-18 teams. Ronaldo became the first Manchester United player in Portugal, signing ahead of the 2003–04 season.
The £12.24m transfer fee made him the most valuable teenager in English football history. Although he asked for the number 28, his sports number, he received the number 7 jerseys previously worn by United players such as George Best, Eric Cantona, and David Beckham. Number 7 has become an additional source of motivation for Ronaldo. A key element in his development during his time in England was his manager Alex Ferguson, of whom he later said: “He was my father in the sport, one of the most important and influential factors in my career.”
At the time, Ronaldo moved to Real Madrid for a world-record fee of £80 million (€94 million). His contract, which ran until 2015, was worth €11 million a year and contained a €1 billion buyout clause. At least 80,000 fans attended his presentation, surpassing the 25-year record of 75,000 fans who welcomed Diego Maradona. As if Ronaldo needs no introduction right now. Discipline is the main rule of her success.
