Cristiano Ronaldo

by Gege from Pristina

Cristiano Ronaldo is a kind and famous football player who is one of the best footballers after Lionel Messi. One of the reasons why he is so kind is that he donated 1 million euros to charity. Another reason he is so kind is that he accidentally hurt a little kid and to make up for it he paid his medical bills and signed his jersey. Finally, Ronaldo sold one of his golden boots (which is extremely hard to win) took the money, and gave it to the Palestine people in need.

Cristiano Ronaldo Do Santos Averio was born on February 5, 1985, in Fuchal the capital of Madeira, Portugal. He has two older sisters and an older brother which makes him the youngest in his family. Ronaldo began playing football at 9 years old. At just 14, Ronaldo threw a chair at his teacher for calling him poor. Soon it even caused him to get expelled. A year later at just 15, he got heart surgery because his heart was beating at a rapid pace which could have been deadly. In 1997, Ronaldo played for a football club called Sporting Lisbon FC. which lasted quite some time until he joined Manchester United. He improved a lot in 2008 when he scored a banger 52 yards long! After 6 years of playing for Manchester United, he joined Real (REY-ALL) Madrid. His best version of himself was in 2013 when he scored 69 goals! That is insane for such a player. After 9 years of playing for Madrid, he went on signing with Juventus in 2018. In 2021 he went to Manchester United which turned out to be his biggest mistake. He was always benched, the coach hated him, and he would not even let him go to another club. Thankfully, that lasted for only 1 year when he transferred to Al Nasser for 250 million euros.

People have plenty of challenges, but Ronaldo did not just have 1 or 2 challenges he had plenty of challenges. For instance, when Ronaldo was just born, his parents were going to place him in the adoption center, but his mom said, “We can take care of him.’’ Ronaldo started playing football at 9 years. You might be thinking that is a good thing, but it was about to be one of his biggest mistakes. Because at just 15 Ronaldo had to get heart surgery and his parents could not even afford it. So, his parents had to work more jobs. Somehow it worked. One day the worst thing you could imagine happened to him. His father died! Just imagine at 17 years old your father dies. You are wondering how Ronaldo overcame these challenges, let me tell you how he overcame this stuff. He overcame this by playing football. First, he got signed by Sporting FC then he got loads of money to pay his bills and soon became a multi-millionaire.  

Ronaldo has many accomplishments so let me tell you how he won those accomplishments. He won 5 Ballon d'Or's. He won them in 2008, 2014, 2015 2016, and finally 2017. He won his Champions Leagues in 2008, 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018. 

In conclusion he is a good person because he donates blood and donates to charity. And when you have challenges, they help you get better.
