''The Dream Of A Child''; Cristiano Ronaldo Narrates How He Relentlessly Managed To Rise To The TOP
From a nobody playing in the streets of Madeira to a 4 times Ballon d’Or winner playing for one of the best clubs in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo shares how he rose to fame and his urge to be the best on The Players’ Tribune.
Though he enjoyed playing on the busy street, he was lucky to have his father, who was the kitman for CF Andorinha to lobby his way into the youth team. His brilliance got him into the Academy at Sporting Lisbon in Portugal and there he made his life changing decision.
“Football kept me going. I knew I was doing things on the field that the other kids at the academy couldn’t do. I remember the first time I heard one of the kids say to another kid,’did you see what he did? this guy is a beast'” he recalled.
