When Ronaldo appeared at Old Trafford, he looked a bit shy and innocent. He was very well aware of bitterness of life . His experiences with his father and brother were not smooth in childhood so he was well aware of excesses to avoid.
His mother told the Daily mirror in an interview “Cristiano had seen what drinks and drugs do to his close one and that’s the reason behind his success. His only addiction is football.”
Ronaldo had apartment in Alderley Edge. He spent 50000euro merely on his apartment. He came alone but his cousin Nuno and his brother-in-law joined him. They are a ideal trio.
He preferred a private life instead of popping up in headlines. Fame does not blur his vision, football is always the chief focus that saves him from pitfalls that are usually tasted by youngsters. He did not forget his roots and watered them occasionally by visiting his old friends in Santo Antonio.
Cristiano Ronaldo netted a double to become the European Championship’s all-time leading scorer as Portugal struck three times late on to beat a stubborn Hungary 3-0 in their Euro 2020 opener at a packed Puskas Arena on Tuesday.
He has captaincy qualities when his team member Ferguson faced allegations of missing drug test and was punished with heavy fine. Ronaldo supported him by giving a statement in his favor.
