Cristiano Ronaldo is considered by most football fans to be one of the greatest players to ever play the game, and his performances over the past decade have only reinforced this belief. Sir Alex Ferguson, Sporting CP’s legendary manager, immediately spotted Ronaldo as a promising wing player after he graduated from their youth program in Madeira.
In six years playing for Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo advanced from a winger with little vision and speed to a lethal player who threw himself into attacking situations. Prior to moving to Real Madrid as the world’s most expensive player, he won many trophies for Manchester United and Portugal. He helped Real Madrid win several trophies during his time at the club by breaking several important goalscoring records.
Cristiano Ronaldo captained the first-ever Portuguese national team at Euro 2016 in his role as captain.
