Biography of Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro says Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese football player born February 5, 1985 in Funchal. He is often nicknamed El Commandante or CR7.
A difficult childhood
Cristiano Ronaldo is the last child of a family of four. He grows up with an unemployed father suffering from alcoholism and a big brother Hugo, addicted to drugs. His father died in 2005 from liver cancer caused by the alcohol. He is the same year accused of rape by two women, but the case will not go further.
The odyssey of a champion: The young prodigy
Supporter of Benfica Lisbon since his childhood, Cristiano began his football career at the age of 8 at FC Andorinha. In 1995, the young athlete was 10 years old and joined the Club Desportivo Nacional then in 1996 Sporting Portugal recruited him. In 2002, the young Cristiano was 17 years old and played for the first time in the first division on September 29, during a match. where he scored a double. During the 25 games of this season, he shows all his talent and the big European teams are starting to take an interest in him. While he is too expensive for FC Barcelona or for AC Milan, he will shine in England.
His exploits with Manchester United
In 2003, Mancheste manager Alex Ferguson would like to have the young football prodigy on his team. Cristiano joins the Manchester team for 18 million euros. He takes number 7, previously worn by players such as David Beckham or Eric Cantona on the same team. He demonstrates his talent in the 2006-2007 season with 17 goals and 10 assists, and comes in second place at the Ballon d'Or (won this year by the Brazilian Kaka). The following year, he allows Manchester to win the Champions League. He began to interest Real Madrid. In 2008, he became for the first time Ballon d'Or
Real Madrid is paying Cristiano
In 2009, Madrid managed to recruit Cristiano Ronaldo for the modest sum of 94 million euros. He becomes the most expensive player in history, and shines again among the Madrilenians, with 26 goals scored in 29 games. In 2010-2011, he scored no less than 40 goals. Cristiano Ronaldo does not hide his desire to join Barcelona either. But if Real can boast of having the small genius CR7, Barcelona, it owns the rival and worst enemy of Cristiano, Lionel Messi (5 times Golden Balls in 2009, 2010,2011, 2012, 2016). Cristiano Ronaldo won his second Golden Ball in 2013. In the round of 16 in the Champions League in 2013, Real beat Cristiano's former Manchester side in the first leg. He became the best Portuguese scorer of the season and top scorer of the edition (12 goals), despite the elimination of Real by Germany. He finished the 2014 season with 25 goals in the league and 32 goals in all competitions. Despite a difficult start to the 2015 season (red card and two suspension games), he became the top scorer in the history of European cups. In May 2015, Cristiano Ronaldo was crowned European Golden Shoe, which was awarded in a ceremony at Santiago Bernabeu, with 48 goals and is tied with Messi and Neymar for the title of top scorer in the Champions League. In 2015, he won his third Ballon d'Or (in front of Messi and Manuel Neuer). In 2016, Cristiano Ronaldo and his Madrid team-mates welcome former Real coach Zinédine Zidane. Former number 10 replaces coach Carlo Ancelotti.
In 2014 and 2015, Cristiano Ronaldo hit 64 and nearly 73 million euros. The PSG would start to interest him, the captain of the team Thiago Silva and the player Di Maria militate for the Portuguese football player pass from Real Madrid to PSG. Real Madrid ask Marco Verratti in exchange for Cristiano Ronaldo, if he goes to PSG. The Arsenal team would also like to recruit him. In the running for the 2016 Golden Ball, Cristiano Ronaldo had the support of Didier Deschamps who voted for him.
National career less brilliant
If he is a prodigy in La Liga, Ronaldo has not really shone in world and European competitions. Portugal fails in the final of Euro 2004, in the quarter-finals of Euro 2008 and in the semifinals of Euro 2012, as well as at the World Cup in 2006 and 2014. The Portuguese have been beaten by Germany (4-0), after eliminating Sweden led by Zlatan Ibrahimovic (PSG). This competition is also an opportunity for Ronaldo to register his first goal in the national team.
More than a player, an icon
Cristiano Ronaldo is a player who gets all the attention of the media. He has become an icon for the world of football, sports and even beyond, and it is not the 10-meter statue erected by his sponsor Nike in Lisbon and Madrid that will contradict this status.
He is said to be self-possessed and arrogant, but the Portuguese footballer is a great philanthropist. In 2004, Ronaldo organized a fundraiser to help the victims of the tsunami in the Indian Ocean. In 2010, he organizes a charity match following the storm that struck Madeira. The same year, he gives his time during a visit to a hospital in Lisbon and offers sick children jerseys from Portugal. Two years later, he will meet a 9-year-old child with cancer and pay for his treatment. In 2011, after the Lorca earthquake, Cristiano and his team-mates from Real organized a friendly match called "All with Lorca" and raised funds for the victims. The same year, he auctioned his golden shoe to 1.5 million euros. The harvested bottoms were intended for Palestinian children in Gaza.
The hunk of football has been crowned the most sexy player of the Euro 2004, the World Cup 2006 and Euro 2008, and the sexiest sportsman of the year in 2012. The brands are tearing and Cristiano will be advertising for Suzuki, Nike (with the slogan "Write the Future") Coca-Cola or Pepe Jeans.
In 2010, Ronaldo is the face of Giorgio Armani and underwear Emporio Armani with American actress Megan Fox. He makes the cover of Vanity Fair (UK) in underwear. With the Brazilians Ronaldo or Neymar, he becomes the ambassador of the online poker site, PokerStars. In 2016, he makes a humorous advertisement for SFR, playing on his seductive side. He poses as an underwear for GQ the same year, alongside Alessandra Ambrosio.
He will also cover video games, FIFA Street 2, Pro Evolution Soccer 2008, 2012 and 2013.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a scorer. While many rumors have reported his homosexuality, his associates show for the moment just the opposite. The striker has been in pairs with models Merche Romero in 2006 or Nereida Gallardo in 2008. In 2010, Cristiano Ronaldo faces a case that has unleashed the media. He becomes a father of a Cristiano Jr, born of unknown mother. According to the rumors, he would have paid the woman in question more than 12 million euros so that she keeps silence on his identity and especially that it leaves him the exclusive custody of his son. He meets shortly after the Russian model Irina Shayk. The couple separated 5 years later, because of alleged infidelities of the sportsman. According to her older sister, Cristiano has been dating Portuguese actress and model Rita Pereira since the beginning of 2015.
If his main enemy is the Argentine Lionel Messi (both personally and professionally), Cristiano Ronaldo has very good relations with his former teammates Manchester, Wayne Rooney and Anderson, but also with the Madrid players Marcelo Fabio Coentrao, Pepe, Sergio Ramos or the sulphurous player of the Blues Karim Benzema. He is also very close to coach Jorge Mendes, whom he considers a "spiritual father".
