Life Journey

WoodGram presents the Full Story of a Football Genius known by his simple nickname “Dave.”.

Cesar Azpilicueta’s Biography and Childhood Story provides a full account of notable events from his childhood time to the present day. This biography of the Chelsea Legend and Captain focuses on his life before fame, his relationship life, and his family life, as well as other OFF-Pitch little-known facts about him.

Andrés Iniesta Biography, Age, Height, Wife, Family, Net Worth & Wiki

There is no doubt that everyone knows about Cesar Azpilicueta’s defensive skills, but few consider his biography, which is quite interesting. Without further ado, let’s begin.

On the 28th day of August 1989, Azpilicueta Tanco was born in Pamplona, Spain. Azpilicueta Tanco was born to Mr. and Mrs. Azpilicueta Tanco. His zodiac sign is Virgo.

Cesar was introduced to football by his elder brother, Juan Pablo Azpilicueta, who is nine years older than him. Azpilicueta came up through CA Osasuna’s youth system. He began his career as a forward before becoming a midfielder.

Azpilicueta became a regular in the first team in 2007-2008 due to injuries in the main squad. His career took off from there. After serving as a left-back the following season, he moved to Marseille in 2010.

In Marseille, he set a world record by playing as an attacker, winger, central/defensive midfielder, and right/central/left-back. At this point, he was a complete player.

Marseille confirmed that Azpilicueta could leave in August 2012 amid speculation about clubs interested in the player, including Premier League club Chelsea. Marseille said, “If Chelsea makes a fair offer for Azpi (Azpilicueta), we will let him go.”.

Despite his loyalty to Marseille, the player said he would leave if only his departure would improve Marseille’s finances. Chelsea FC’s acquisition of the player saved Marseille’s finances. After that, history was written.

Cesar Azpilicueta is a good man first and foremost. On the field, he has a gentle personality, which reflects his personal life. He is the kind of man every lady deserves to have as a lifelong lover.

The best thing about Cesar’s relationship life is that he has been taken by a lady who will never let him go, and that is all because of his good character. The actor is in a relationship with his childhood sweetheart, who goes by the name, Adriana Azpilicueta. They got married in June 2015 in Pamplona, Spain (where both of them are from).

They have a child together, who was born in March 2014. Adriana loves to keep her private life very private. It has been reported that Adriana most times battles with her husband regarding his over-loyalty to the Chelsea football club even when they are on holiday.

Unai Simon Biography, Age, Height, Wife, Family, Career, Net Worth & Wiki



“As Cesar Azpilicueta points out,

He said he loved the good qualities of his wife. I accept the flaws that she has as well. I do not make my wife feel guilty for having the flaws she does. I personally take full responsibility for my errors and do not look for anyone to blame.”

The older brother of Azpilicueta, Juan Pablo Azpilicueta Tanco (born 1980), was also a professional footballer. As a midfielder, he competed exclusively in the lower divisions of the Spanish football leagues. The reason for the involvement of his little brother in football has been credited to him.

Aspilicueta’s father and mother live in Pamplona, Spain, where Azpilicueta grew up. Both parents are completely away from the media and enjoy an enjoyable life in their Spanish bull city away from the press. Azpilicueta is a Spanish city that is famous throughout the world for its running of bulls events. As part of their renowned multi-day festival, daredevil runners lead bulls through the streets of the city.

The idea of watching and participating in dangerous festivals can be very exciting for viewers.

Cesar Azpilicueta puts it this way:

The bull-running has never been something that I have participated in or observed. I can’t imagine I would have done it even if I had not been a footballer. But I know a lot of my former teammates who did it, and people in the town who have trained all year to be fit enough to run from bulls. Everyone has their own passion. Perhaps mine is to be fit for football.

It was once reported by Azpilicueta that his Creisea teammates had given up trying to pronounce his name correctly – preferring instead to call him ‘Dave’.

It is said that Azpilicueta once produced an idiot’s guide to pronouncing his name after his English fans demanded that they know how to pronounce the name.

The incident caused him to go to extreme lengths in order to teach his fans how to pronounce his surname. In the letter, Azpilicueta wrote out his name and broke it down into three simple, easy-to-say sections: Ath-pilly-kwta. Quite simple.

Azpilicueta drives a white Mercedes GLS that costs around £70,000. Currently, he earns E100,000 a week and can afford to buy four of these cars in a month.

It was not easy for Cesar to learn how to live in England when he arrived from France. However, he managed. There was one man who helped him along the way. His countryman Juan Mata is the man who regularly takes him to a London tour guide whose services he uses on a regular basis.

In the months following the arrival of new manager Jose Mourinho, Azpilicueta began to appear regularly as a left-back, taking the place of longtime incumbent Ashley Cole. In fact, he is the reason why Ashley Cole left Chelsea in the first place.

In the words Jose Mourinho once told a reporter:

“Azpilicueta is the kind of player I like a lot. I think a team with 11 Azpilicuetas would probably win the competition (Champions League) because football is not just about pure talent”.

Azpilicueta has even been used as a left-back by Antonio Conte. Azpilicueta was once voted the club’s Player of the Year for the 2013/2014 season. I was surprised to learn that he played every minute of every game for Chelsea during the 2016/2017 season.

In our research, we noticed that Azpilicueta is a Virgo.

  • Although still a member of the reserve team, he started his career as a forward and once he left the reserve team switched to midfield throughout his club and international career (both senior and youth), he played in a range of positions, including center-back and central midfield.
  • As a consequence of injuries in the main squad, Azpilicueta established himself as a first-team regular at the age of just 18 due to injuries in the main squad.
  • In the following season, he maintained this position, appearing in all but two league games over the course of the season.

Life Journey

The Biography of Rodrigo Moreno tells you facts about his Childhood Story, Early Life, Parents, Family, Wife, Child, Lifestyle, Net Worth, and Personal Life – in a nutshell, we present the history of Football Genius referred to as Rodri. We begin with his early days in soccer, when he became famous.

Here is a pictorial overview of Rodrigo Moreno’s life to give you a sense of how engaging his bio is. Yes, he is fast, energetic, brave, and, most importantly, he has a knack for scoring decisive goals.

Only a few people consider our version of Rodrigo Moreno’s biography, although it is quite interesting. So let’s get started.

Rodrigo Moreno Machado was born on the 6th of March 1991 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to his mother, Andreia Moreno Machado, and father, Adalberto Machado. His loving parents, a lookalike dad, and a beautiful mother welcomed him into the world as their first child and son.

Although Rodrigo plays for Spain, his family is Brazilian and he is of pure Brazilian descent.

Every member of his immediate family is of mixed-race Brazilian descent. Their skin color indicates African (Afro-Brazilian) ancestry.

Rodrigo Moreno spent his childhood in the seaside city of Rio de Janeiro. He grew up with his beautiful sister, Mariana Moreno.

The love of football in Rodrigo Moreno’s household can be attributed to his father, Adalberto Machado (an ex-footballer). The former Brazilian footballer played in the 1980s. He is the brother of Iomar Do Nascimento, AKA Mazinho (another footballer who won the 1994 world cup).

Thiago Alcantara and Rafinha are cousins to Mazinho, i.e. he is their father.

Rodrigo’s dad Adalberto was appointed Director of Football in 1994 by his 1994 FIFA World Cup-winning brother Mazinho, who acquired a soccer school in Vigo, Spain. To be clear, Vigo is a city and municipality in northwest Spain, adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean.

The need to manage a big football business in Spain led Rodrigo Moreno’s parents to move their entire household to Spain as a boy. Prior to his family moving to Spain, Rodrigo and his cousins all attended Barrel’s school in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, before moving to Spain.

Rodrigo followed in his dad’s footsteps by beginning to play football before his 5th-grade year. Rodrigo’s parents enrolled him in soccer school Escolinha do Flamengo early on while he was 5 years old so he can receive a proper futsal education.

Rodrigo was a star of the Escolinha do Flamengo Juniors Team (where his dad retired from his senior career). As a kid, he won several Futsal championships there, where he stood out from his teammates.

Rodrigo’s purpose in playing soccer was to carry on the legacy of his father, that is, to continue living the dreams of his family. His father, Adalberto Machado, and uncle Mazinho had a hard time coping with retirement.

Rodrigo Alcantara moved to Galicia in his early teens, after his second cousins Rafinha and Thiago Alcantara left Brazil for Spain as kids.

Rodrigo’s dad took care of AGC and Rafinha when they first played at their father’s football academy investment in 1996. During Mazinho and his wife’s business trips, the two boys would sometimes sleep at Rodrigo’s house.

Rodrigo left Brazil after playing futsal for Flamengo and moved to Spain with his family in 2003. Two years after his arrival (in 2005), his cousins Rafinha and Thiago Alcantara had progressed to Barcelona’s La Masia.

As Rodrigo’s progress continued, he passed trials and joined Celta Vigo’s youth ranks. A few months after moving to his new club, his talent immediately attracted the attention of bigger clubs.

It was impossible to refuse an unbelievable offer from Real Madrid after four years with the Galicians. Rodrigo’s father was a scout when he was transferred to Real Madrid. The super dad facilitated his son’s 300,000 euro transfer.

Rodrigo, who was 18 years old at the time, faced the Madrid challenge in the year 2009. He scored important goals for Los Blancos.

Rodrigo’s chances to make the first team improved when former Real Madrid manager Manuel Pellegrini called him into the first team. The plan did not work out as Manuel Pellegrini was sacked and a new Mourinho did not include Rodrigo in his plans.

Jose Mourinho was only interested in big players (such as Ozil, Angel Di Maria, and Emmanuel Adebayor) and this left Rodrigo frustrated with no choice but to leave.

Rodrigo was sold by Jose Mourinho to Benfica. He encountered another opponent there. He was competing for a starting position there. It was an unhealthy competition. Javier Saviola and Pablo Aimar were among the competitors. After Rodrigo wasn’t able to unseat those legendary players, Benfica (nicknamed The Eagles) arranged for him to be loaned to Bolton Wanderers.

Rodrigo lived alone at Bolton (located in Manchester, UK). For the first time, he was without his father. He reunited with former Madrid teammate Marcos Alonso at the club as well. Bailer later achieved great success at Chelsea.

Rodrigo did not have a huge success in England. He was largely overshadowed by another player. Lee Chung-Yong is a South Korean footballer. Lee Chung-Yong plays football on the right-wing.

Rodrigo returned to Benfica following a brief unsuccessful spell at Bolton following the departure of his rivals (Pablo Aimar, Javier Saviola, and Nuno Gomes). After struggling in England, Rodrigo returned to Portugal. There, he began a new chapter in his career. He began to establish himself.

This time around, he developed beautifully at Benfica. His skills were consistently demonstrated. He is renowned for his blistering pace and unpredictability on the dribble. Rodrigo was also known in the modern game for having everything a striker needs.

Nicolas Gaitan played alongside the forward. Oscar Cardozo and Axel Vitsel played alongside him. Rodrigo helped the club win their famous treble. A few of these trophies include the Primeira Liga, Taca de Portugal, and Taca da Liga.

During his 118 appearances for the Portuguese giants, he scored 45 goals and supplied 17 assists, illustrating just why Valencia was eager to acquire the talented attacker.

Rodrigo was impressed during his first season with Valencia under Nuno Espirito Santo, helping the club qualify for the Champions League.

As in the previous season, Rodrigo helped the club to win the prestigious Copa del Rey title after scoring in a decisive 2-1 win over FC Barcelona. Rodrigo has just projected Valencia to reach the last 16 of the Champions League after missing it for five years.

He will always be remembered for his heroics on the pitch as the Spanish striker who went from near-zero to an undoubted hero. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Rodri (Rodrigo Hernandez) Biography, Age, Parents, Wife, Career, Net Worth & Wiki



Football fans have surely wondered whether their star player has a girlfriend or if he is actually married (has a wife).

Rodrigo’s cute looks coupled with a distinct style of play wouldn’t place him at the top of every potential girlfriend’s or wife’s wish list.

There is a glamorous lady behind the successful footballer, one who has captured his heart. Rodrigo’s girlfriend is still unknown. She appears to be close to all of his family members, especially the wives of his footballing cousins.

Rodrigo and his girlfriend announced their relationship via Instagram on the 12th of October, 2018. They welcomed their first child just one year later (around October 2019). Rodrigo’s child was presented to the public via Instagram in an unusual way, one that featured him dressed in his Halloween costume.

To understand Rodrigo Moreno’s personality, you need to understand his personal life and views away from football.

Firstly, he holds dearly to his words (crested on his Instagram wall) which say;

For those with faith and mental strength, the impossible is only a matter of opinion.

Rodrigo’s mental toughness is a reflection of his resilience and confidence. His success as a person is due to this. He is someone who is always using his mind. In the absence of mental stimulation, Rodrigo becomes bored and lacks the motivation to carry on with his daily activities.

Rodrigo has also shown that he can adapt to different environments and energies after moving from Brazil to Spain, then Portugal, and finally England. Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez, etc. love their pets. Rodrigo is no exception.

Although there is a saying that there is no loyalty left in the modern game, that does not take away from the likeness Rodrigo has for his dog, who he sometimes wears a Valencia jersey in memory. On the third day of June 1964, Adalberto Machado was born in Mexico City, Mexico. He is a retired Brazilian footballer who played as a left-back during his professional career.

In the same way that Rodrigo’s father attended the Flamengo youth academy, so too did Rodrigo attend the Flamengo academy. Adalberto’s senior career began on a down note, which was a great disappointment. During his first senior season of football, he spent the majority of the season sidelined as a result of a leg injury.

A man who only played for Flamengo once struggled severely with injuries because he only played for one club. He struggled with this throughout his senior years. In the wake of this sad development, he decided to end his career at the age of 24. According to the press, there has been little written about Rodrigo Moreno Machado’s mother Andreia Moreno Machado.

To the best of my knowledge, Andrea has shielded herself from exposure to the media as of the time of this writing. It is only in Adalberto’s (her husband’s) absence that she is able to fulfill her motherly duties. As well as Rodri and Mariana (her children).

Rodrigo De Paul Biography, Age, Family, Wife, Career, Net Worth & Wiki




It seems, based on her looks, that Rodrigo’s dad, unlike his mother, has a stronger gene in the Machado family than his mother does.
Moreno’s sister Mariana does look very much like her father.

Maria is currently enjoying a private life on Instagram as of the time of writing. At this time, only close friends and family members have access to her Instagram account. As she writes on her Instagram wall, “She enjoys the good things that she has in life”. To Mariana, having the chance to spend quality time with her successful big brother sums up what a ‘good life’ means to her.

Despite the fact that money is truly valued, Rodrigo will not have a hard time managing it. The man has the talent to maintain a balance between spending and showing off his wealth at the same time. He also has the ability to save money. It is a symbol of his simple lifestyle that he has an average car.

During the course of his career, Rodrigo has had some tattoos on his upper arm that represents a dragon wrapping around the Valencia logo. The dragon represents him as a superhero. As a superhero that guides the club (which is visualized by the Valencia logo). He also throws flares against opposing teams, thus assisting his team.

Rodrigo is a native of the city (of Rio de Janeiro). It is in this city that more than half of its population (74.5%) has been baptized into the Christian faith. About 51.1% of its population is also catholic (Sources report).

On the basis of these facts, it is likely that Rodrigo is a Christian. Every member of his household adopts the Christian Religious faith of Catholicism as a way of life. Rodrigo’s birth city is home to a statue of Christ the Redeemer, which is often referred to as one of the world’s new seven wonders and is the pride of Brazilian Catholics everywhere.

Ma Huateng Biography, Age, Education, Family, Career

Early Life

The oldest of five sons, Wang Jianlin was born on October 24, 1954, in Cangxi County, Guangyuan, Sichuan. During the Long March, which took place between October 1934 and October 1935, his father, Wang Yiquan, was a peasant who fought for Mao Zedong’s People’s Liberation Army.

His father, who worked for the forestry service after leaving the army just before the Korean War, and mother Qin Jialin relocated to a village in Jinchuan County, Sichuan, where their son would grow up. His birth name means “forest creator” in English.

Wang lied about his age when he enlisted in the army at the age of 15, rose swiftly through the ranks, and at the age of 27, became a commander. He served in Chengdu during his stint in the military before being transferred to the Shenyang Military Region in 1970. Wang began working as the office administrator for the Xigang District in the city of Dalian in 1986, after serving for 17 years in the army.

He acquired the modest real estate developer Xigang Residential Development in 1988 with the aid of an $80,000 loan. He was promoted to general manager and changed his name to Dalian Wanda in 1992, when the company became one of the first in a pilot program to go public.

Professional Career

His business owns 21.57 million square meters of investment property, 168 Wanda Shopping Plazas, 82 opulent hotels, 213 movie theatres, 99 department shops, and 54 karaoke bars all around China. When the firm purchased AMC Theatres in 2012, it rose to the position of largest theatre owner in the world. 

For US$2.6 billion, he acquired AMC Entertainment, which is situated in the US. In December, he announced its New York Stock Exchange listing. In order to help kick off an $8 billion mini-Hollywood in the coastal city of Qingdao in January 2014, he flew in actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Beckinsale, and John Travolta.

The historic Edificio Espaa building in Madrid, Spain, was purchased by Wanda Group from Grupo Santander in March 2014 for “roughly a third less than the €389 million that Banco Santander paid in 2005, at the height of Spain’s construction boom.” Previously, Dalian Wanda had undertaken real estate ventures in India, as well as billion-dollar hotel construction projects in London and New York.

In order to construct the American headquarters of his entertainment company, dubbed “One Beverly Hills,” he purchased land at 9900 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, California in 2014. He reportedly paid €45 million to acquire a 20% share in the Spanish football team Atlético Madrid in January 2015. 2018 saw him sell his interest to Quantum Pacific Group for an unknown sum.

As a direct competitor to Shanghai Disneyland Park, Wang announced in 2016 that he will open over a dozen rival amusement parks in an effort to prevent Shanghai Disneyland Park from making any money in China. 

The purchase of Dick Clark Productions, which would have given Wang’s Dalian Wanda Group the broadcasting rights to the New York City New Year’s Eve celebrations, the Academy of Country Music Awards, and the Golden Globe Awards, was revealed in November 2016 for a price of roughly $1 billion. The American movie theatre chain AMC Entertainment Holdings and Legendary Entertainment, a co-producer of movies including Jurassic World, are already owned by Wanda.

Wang Jianlin Personal life

His son Wang Sicong, who attended Winchester College and University College London in the UK, is the child of his marriage to Lin Ning and them. Through his Beijing-based private equity fund, Prometheus Capital, Wang Sicong, a member of the Wanda Group’s board of directors, invests in venture capital in China.

Even though he doesn’t consider himself religious, Wang practices Buddhism. He maintains military discipline in his daily life as a result of his extensive military experience. His performances of traditional music from Mongolia and Tibet are equally well-known. He enjoys karaoke singing and art collecting.

Wang paid GB£80 million in December 2015 to acquire London’s 15a Kensington Palace Gardens. The property was formerly occupied by billionaire Leonard Blavatnik of Ukraine, who rented it out while undergoing extensive renovations on the home he owned across the street.

The Wanda Way: The Management Philosophy and Values of One of China’s Biggest Companies, written by Wang, was published in July 2016. LID Publishing released the book in every country. The acclaimed 2013 China Central Television Voice interview, his lecture and question-and-answer session at the Harvard Business School, and Wang’s business philosophies on Wanda’s real estate, resort, and film units are all included in the book.

Politics and Charity

Wang enlisted in the People’s Liberation Army at the age of 15, first working as a border guard before progressing to the position of regimental commander. He served in the PLA for 17 years. The Communist Party of China welcomed him in 1976. For the 17th National Congress, he served as a deputy.

In the Chinese National People’s Congress, Wang is a representative. The “Economic Person of the Year” on CCTV twice honoured him. He has served as the vice chairman of the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce since 2008, and he is a participant in the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.

He serves as vice chair of several organizations, including the China Folk Chamber of Commerce, the China Enterprise Confederation, the China Enterprise Directors Association, the China General Chamber of Commerce, and the Global Advisory Council of Harvard University. He is also vice chair of the China Charity Confederation.

His 2011 charity donations totalled US$197 million, which he used to fund projects including the renovation of a historic Nanjing temple. He gave a donation of $200,000 in 2014 and 2015 to help Beverly Hills, California’s Electric Fountain get back to its original beauty. Given that he had grown up in Ngawa Prefecture, it was thought that he had a special understanding of the region and donated CNY 20 million in 2017 to aid Sichuan landslide victims.

The Chinese Communist Party and Wang continue to have a strong relationship. The IPO of Dalian Wanda saw a rise in equity to over $1.1 billion when the company was public, according to a 2015 New York Times report. This occurred as a result of families of high-ranking Party leaders accumulating a share in the company before the IPO. These family members consist of Wen Jiabao’s daughter as well as Qi Qiaoqiao, Xi Jinping’s sister.

On the contrary, Wang’s personal adage is to “keep politics far from the government.” In his opinion, businesspeople should be both “near” to and “clean” of the government. The government won’t be able to learn what entrepreneurs want to invest in, create, or solve if they never speak with them.

In 2010, Wang gave the city of Nanjing a billion yuan (US$156 million) to help with the Porcelain Tower of Nanjing renovation. According to reports, this is the greatest single personal donation ever given in China.

Wang Jianlin Controversy

In the past, Wang Jianlin was the wealthiest person in Asia. He was actively developing his Dalian Wanda Group Co. by purchasing prized assets abroad with the help of easy credit.

After losing almost $32 billion of his own fortune in less than six years, the 66-year-old no longer even ranks among China’s top 30 richest people. This is the largest loss of any billionaire during that time. In order to turn around his entertainment-to-property enterprise and reduce the group’s overall debt of 362 billion yuan ($56 billion), Wang must overcome the scepticism of the bond market.

Earlier, when a larger slump rocked the Asian credit market, some of Wanda’s dollar bonds were among the first to fall. These bonds were braced for a wall of maturing onshore notes that was expected to climax this year.

Investors watching to see how Wang will manage to steer his group clear of the debt issues that have shaken peers like HNA Group Co., China Evergrande Group, and Anbang Group Holdings Co. were forewarned by the selloff, which was partially brought on by worries about the impending payments.

Wanda Wang is still selling off some of the properties she acquired when she once went on a binge-buying spree and bought Atletico Madrid in Spain with the intention of competing with Walt Disney Co. The most recent was when Wanda relinquished control of AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. last week; as a result, less than 10% of the largest chain of movie theatres in the world is now under Wanda’s control.

Despite the disposals made in response to a government crackdown on credit-fueled growth, Wanda Group’s debt as of June grew to its highest level since 2017. The pandemic has only made matters worse by negatively impacting the country’s hotels, theme parks, malls, movie theatres, and sporting events.

Wang is getting the much-needed time he needs to right his ship as China’s economy stabilizes once the virus has been contained thanks to the reopening of movie theatres and shopping centres. He is moving on with the “asset-light” model, a strategy to lessen leverage that he has always supported.

By reducing the amount of land you buy, you can save money. One of the largest mall operators in the world, Dalian Wanda Commercial Management Group Co., which generates roughly half of the group’s revenue, announced to Chinese media in September that it will cease purchasing plots and instead license its name to partners rather than continue to buy them.

He was the richest person in China with a net worth of $31.3 billion when Forbes listed him 18th on its 2017 World’s Billionaires list one year later. Due to a spike in the stock price of Ma’s Alibaba Group, however, Jack Ma surpassed Wang Jianlin on May 14 to become the richest person in China.

Wang’s real estate empire and chain of movie theatres both experienced a steep collapse in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and he dropped significantly in the rich list. He was rated outside the top 10 on Forbes’ 2020 list of the wealthiest Chinese billionaires, with an estimated net worth of $14 billion.
