Transcript of Cristiano Ronaldo
Who am I?
I, Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, currently 29 years old, was born on February 5, 1985. Fun fact, my name Ronaldo, is from the U.S. President, Ronald Reagon, who was someone my father greatly admired.
I was born in Santo Antonio in Funchal, which is the capital of a Portugese island, Madeira.
Early events that make me who I am today
Education was never a big part of my life. I was kicked out of school for throwing a chair at my teacher, but he was being disrespectful to me. However, my mom understood the situation and allowed me to completely devote my time in practicing soccer.
I am the youngest child of my family; who consists of my mother, Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro working as a cook, my father, Jose Dinis Aveiro, who was a municipal gardener , my brother Hugo Aveiro, and my two sisters Liliana Catia Aveiro and Elma Aveiro. I always had a good relationship with my whole family and my whole childhood is surronded around my siblings.
Cristiano Ronaldo: Champion of the World by Tom Oldfield
3 December 2014
I currently play for the Real Madrid team, as a forward. I have been playing soccer for my whole life and I have played for various teams. I now also have a family of my own.
Sporting CP in Lisbon
Since I was still young, being alone at Lisbon without my family was difficult. It was a big transition from a small island to a noisy capital.
Along with my loneliness, I was teased by my team-mates for my accent and I felt like a complete outsider.
After a while in Lisbon, I was extremely homesick, wanting only to be with my family. The team sensed my homesickness and paid for a visit from my mom, who ended up giving me a boost of encouragment.
In Sporting, I ended up being the first to play for the under- 16s, 17s, and 18s, B-team and first-team in a single season.
As I got better, I attracted the attention from several European clubs, one that included Manchester United, which would later become my next team.
When I first went to United, I requested the number 28 jersey, the same number that I had at sporting. However, the United manager, Alex Ferguson told me I was going to be number 7, a number that was worn by many past legends including David Beckham.
Like I said before, my father always had a alcohol problem. In 2005, the time when I played for Manchester United, my father died in a hospital at age 51 in Funchal from a chronic liver condition.
When I was 15 years old, I was diagnosed with a racing heart, which was a condition that could have ended my soccer career. However, I got surgery and a laser cauterized the part of my heart which caused the problem. A few days after the operation, I was back in training.
Real Madrid 2009-2010
On the 26th of June in 2009, I joined my current team, Real Madrid with a transfer of £80 million, which meant that I was the most expensive footballer in history. I am number 9 on the Real Madrid team, after the legend, Alfredo Di Stéfano.
In 2010, my son Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. was welcomed into the world. Since 2010, I have been with the beautiful Irina Shayk.
After all the training and preparation for Euro 2004, we, Portugal lost against Greece in front of our home fans. Tears ran down my eyes because not only was my dream of holding the trophy gone, I had to face what I hated most, losing.
Disappointments in Manchester
After we lost 3-1 against Fulham, our team won six consecutive games in all competitions; starting off November with a 3-0 score against Portsmouth.
I scored in our win in the 2003-04 FA cup against Manchester City with the final score of 4-2.
I grew up in a very small house. So small that we had to keep our washing machine on the roof. Because I lived in a poor family, I shared a bedroom with my siblings and I never owned any toys.
Even though my family was really close, my father suffered a drinking problem. Many times I tried to pay and give my father the treatment he needed, but he just kept drinking. Eventually, my mother decided that they were going to live separately.
My first goal playing for Real Madrid was a week after our win aginst Shamrock Rovers. We won LDU Quito with a win of 4-2.
After I scored in our league match against Villarreal, I broke the Madrid record and was the first to score in my first four La Liga appearences.
Although I ended my first season with Real Madrid with no trophy, together me and my partner, Conzalo Higuaín, scored 53 league goals and we were Madrid's highest scoring duo in history.
Manchester United 2006-2007
Manchester United 2008-2009
I won the Barclays Player of the Month in November and December, being the third person ever to win the award two months in a row.
Through my soccer career, I have had many injuries, from a contusion to malleolar injuries.
Some examples include when I scored a hat trick with a win against Malaga. However, I was affected by a muscle injury near the end of the match and I was on the sidelines for 10 days.
Another example was when David Navarro, a defender, was going for a ball and his cleat hit me right above my eye.
I grew up in Funchal and I started playing soccer at a young age. I played in a youth team in Madeira, called CF Andorinha where my dad was the equipment manager.
My skills started getting better, which caused other teams such as Taritimo and Nacional showing interest in letting me become part of the team.
Then when Taritimo's manager missed a planned meeting, I decided to go with Nacional. Then when I was twelve years old, I was off to Lisbon, leaving my family and the island to become part of the Sporting CP Team.
Real Madrid 2011-12
Real Madrid 2013-2014
I have won three Golden Shoe awards. I was the first to win the award in two different leagues; one in the English Premier League with Manchester United and one in Spanish La Liga with Real Madrid.
In 2008, I won my first Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year award and then I won the FIFA Ballon d'Or again in 2013.
My brother had a problem with drugs, going back to it several times. My mom provided therapy and even though I was not by his side, I would spend hours talking to him on the phone so he couldn't go out.
When I left home for the first time, it was very difficult to live in such a different enviroment than my home town. I was made fun of for my accent, but eventually things like this made me more independent.
I scored my 100th goal on the 17th of August in 2011. It was a first-half equaliser against Barcelona in the Spanish Supercup .
In the second leg of semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League agasint Bayern Munich, I was able to score two goals. However the final score was a tie at 3-3 and we were eliminated.
On the last matchday, May 13, I was able to score against Mallorca, making me the first in scoring against every team in one La Liga season. I ended my third season with Real Madrid by winning a league title; a record of 100 points with 46 league goals and 60 goals in all the competitions.
On September 22, I scored in a 4–1 game against Getafe CF and it made me the the fifth highest scorer in the club's history with my total of 208 goals.
I ended the 2013 year with 69 goals in my 59 appearances. With my goal against Valencia, I was the fourth top scorcer in Real Madrid with 164 goals.
On January 13, I was honored when I won the FIFA Ballon d'Or.
We ended the season winning the league. I also became the faster player ever to reach 100 goals in Spanish League history.
In the 2004-2005 season, we, the United players, were defeated by Arsenal and and we went through another season without a trophy.
In our first game of the season, against Fulham, we won 5-1.
Throughout the season, even though I was booed by fans of the opposing team, this inspired me to play better and all I thought of was playing my own game.
Starting the 2008-2009 season, I had a ankle surgery that took my out for 7 months.

Places I've lived
One of the most important places in my life is my hometown, Maderia, where I first learned to master my soccer skills.
At a young age, I moved to Lisbon to join the Sporting CP team.
In the summer of 2003, I was signed into the Manchester United team, practicing at Greater Manchester.
In 2009, I continued my soccer career with Real Madrid. My home is currently located in Madrid.
Last season(2013-2014) I won the UEFA Best Player in Europe Award.
In 2011 and 2014, I won the Pichichi award.
My Opinion on Cristiano Ronaldo
Tom Oldfield's book shows Cristiano's life to his challenges and wins in Manchester United.
Receiving all these awards was a complete honor for me and I proved to myself that all my hard work paid off.
Ronaldo is a player that worked hard towards his goal of becoming a professional soccer player and never gave up when he went through hard losts. He is a confident player who has never thought of having the chance of missing. I think these are just some of the reasons why Tom Oldfield decided to write a book about him.
After reading the book and researching about Cristiano Ronaldo, the thing that surprised me the most was the fact that not once in his career did he think about the possibility of a miss or losing. Even when his team did lose important games, to him these were all just inspirations to play even harder the next game or the next season.
I was born into a strict Catholic family.
I like collecting crucifix necklaces because it shows my relationship with God and the gift he gave me is the reason why I can be the fantastic soccer player I am today.
On April 24th, we won the first leg of the semi-finals but lost the second leg 3-0 against San Siro. Then we had a victory against Manchester City with a score of 1-0, claiming our first Premier League title in the past four years.
When we beat Iran 2-0, I scored the second goal from the penalty spot, and I restored my spot back into the starting line-up.
Our victory against Iran allowed us to have the maximum amount of points in Group D.
When we faced Holland, I was forced to limp out of the game with a thigh injury that later caused swelling.
The 2008-2009 season was our 34th consecutive season of English football, playing in the top division.
On December 28th, 2008, we won the FIFA Club World Cup when we had a 1-0 victory against Quito.
On March 1st, we added our trophy collection with the 2008-2009 League Cup winning Tottenham Hotspur with a 4-1 victory.
