Welcome to Youth Motivator. I would like to tell you about the world’s favourite footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.

This article is the biography of Cristiano Ronaldo.


Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro was born on 5 February 1985 in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal in a very poor family.
Because of the poverty, they used to daily face struggles.
His father, José used to work as a gardener and as a kit man in a football club, on a very low pay. His job as a kit man was to supply kits to the football players and clean their rooms.
José was very sad because he had not achieved anything meaningful in his life and he cannot properly feed his children because of poverty, so he became an alcoholic.
Even though he was an alcoholic, he took good care of Ronaldo.
The football game was introduced to Ronaldo by his father.
Since, his childhood Cristiano Ronaldo did not show much interest in education but had a great passion for football. And he used to play football really well.

Making his own football-

But due to poverty, Ronaldo’s father José could not afford his son a football, so Ronaldo used to make his own ball by rolling old clothes into a ball, with which he used to play in the streets.
In his childhood, he cannot even afford proper shoes due to his immense poverty.
Ronaldo used to borrow old shoes from his relatives, with which he used to play football.

Training hard since childhood-

He used to train very hard since his childhood because he knew that a footballer must need good stamina because football match requires a player to run at least 10 kilometers in a single match.
Sometimes, he used to train himself continuously from morning until evening.
He used to play with the players of a bigger age group to improve his play.
Ronaldo later joined the Andorinha football club, where his father used to work as a kit man.

Facing humiliation-

But, there Ronaldo faced humiliation by his fellow players who used to tease him because his father was working there as a kit man, cleaning the rooms of players
At the age of 10 years, his neighbourhood people started to call him by name football player. His name became synonym with the football sport.
Then, at 12 years of age he left his home and family to join a football club by name Sporting CP, where he used to play football and study simultaneously.
There also Ronaldo faced humiliation by his fellow players, who used to taunt him for his way of speaking. But Ronaldo decided to give them befitting reply by his game.

Even teacher had no mercy-

When he was of 14 years of age, his teacher humiliated him by bugging him of his family’s poverty. Which made little Ronaldo furious, as a result he hurled a chair on that teacher.
After which Ronaldo was dismissed from school, due to this incident he lost interest in studies.
He explained this to his mother, who readily agreed to allow his son to play football, without going to school.
At the age of 15 years, the state recognised his talent.

Risking his life for his passion-

But unfortunately, at such a small age he developed a very serious heart condition by name tachycardia, in which the heart beat increases abnormally.
And the doctors suggested him that he must abandon playing football, as it requires running, which exacerbates tachycardia.
 And the doctors warned him that if he continues to play football, he might face death due to heart failure.
Everyone thought that the football career of Ronaldo came to an end.
Fortunately, doctors presented him with a second option, which is heart surgery.
But the second option had a serious catch, that if the operation fails, he might die or if the operation succeeds, then also there is a little chance of him playing football.

A very tough decision for his family-

For his family, the first option seemed to be apt, as in first option surgery is not required and he can live his life without playing football and without performing any strenuous activity. His family members requested the doctors to consider first option.
But the little Ronaldo, decide to take the biggest risk of his life, even not fearing death, that he would undergo surgery to realise his dream of playing football, even though there was a little chance that after surgery he would be able to play football.
Ronaldo had a vision to become one of the greatest football players.
He talked over about his decision with his parents and an open heart surgery was performed on him at the age of 15.
Luckily, he survived after the surgery and was recovering slowly.

Losing his father-

But unfortunately, his father expired when he was just 20 years of age.
So, his family experienced even severe poverty, as their family’s sole bread earner died.
Afterwards, Ronaldo struggled even to purchase medicines and for proper food.
This made his mother to work as a maid and cook in the neighbourhood houses.   
With her meagre income, she used to buy medicines for Ronaldo and food for her children.

Finally journeying towards his dream-

He again started practicing football.
Ronaldo played for Portugal team at just 17 years of age.
Thanks to his hard work, now he became the topmost football player in the world.

He is one of the greatest football players in the world.
In a football match, no one can expect in the way which Ronaldo makes goals, he possess so many football skills, that his opponents cannot figure out how to stop Ronaldo from making a goal.
In the year 2003, the players of Manchester football club requested their manager to include Ronaldo in their team, after seeing his performance in a match.
So, the manager paid Ronaldo a huge sum join him in Manchester United.
This deal made Ronaldo very famous; he became one of the most expensive players in the world.

Losing his best friend-

In the year 2005, when Ronaldo was of 20 years old, his father died of liver failure as a consequence of alcohol abuse. On the same day there was a match between Russia and Portugal.
Ronaldo played the game and won the man of the match award, withstanding the pain of losing his father. He was very close to his father; they used to be like friends with each other.

A Very talented player-

Normal football players will use their single leg of their dominant side body, i.e.  players of right-handed or left-handed use their respective legs to score goals, but Ronaldo can easily use both of his legs efficiently to make goals.
