A brief history of Cristiano Ronaldo:
Did you know?
- Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro (born February 5, 1985) in Santo António, Madeira, Portugal to father José Dinis Aveiro (municipal gardener) and mother Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro (cook / cleaning woman.)
- Raised in a small tin-roofed home, Cristiano had a challenging childhood with few luxuries. Young Cristiano was obsessed with soccer and would sneak out to play instead of completing homework or eating meals.
- Ronaldo's soccer career began at local amateur club, Andorinha, for which his father worked as the "kit man." From there he moved on to local club Nacional for two years.
- In 1997 at age 12, he was signed to club Sporting CP for a fee of £1,500 following a three day tryout. Cristiano progressed rapidly through the youth club levels and debuted in the Primeira Liga on October 7, 2002, scoring a brace in a 3-0 victory over Moreirense. Not bad for a 17 year-old.
- Coaching legend Sir Alex Ferguson signed the impressive 18 year-old to Manchester United and christened him with the hallowed number 7 Red Devil jersey he sported from 2003 - 2009.
- Ahead of the 2009/10 season, CR7 joined Real Madrid for a world record £80 million transfer fee. Let's just say, Real Madrid got their money's worth!
