Cristiano Ronaldo Biography – Foreword

There aren't a lot of soccer players in the world today that can honestly
state they are more popular than Cristiano Ronaldo. Except for a few
already established super stars such as Ronaldinho or David Beckham,
Cristiano Ronaldo is probably the most popular rising star on the pitch.

His good looks combined with his awesome repertoire of Cristiano Ronaldo
soccer tricks and a hint of trademarked Cristiano Ronaldo goals made him
reach the level of fame on which he is basking in the spotlight sun
today.

This Cristiano Ronaldo biography will try to take you through his career
and although it's a rare case that a player who is still in his early 20s
receives a biography, I'm sure you'll agree that a Cristiano Ronaldo
profile is in order, considering his huge talent and fame.

Cristiano Ronaldo Biography – Youth Clubs

Born in Madeira to a family where soccer was cherished, Cristiano Ronaldo
started playing for a local amateur youth team called Andorinha, where
his father handled the equipment and acted as a kit man.

Cristiano was 8 when he joined Andorinha and by the time he was 10, he
already sparked the curiosity of some of Portugal's biggest clubs. This
led him to sign for the local first-division team CD Nacional, where he
would join the youth club and immediately make an impact, helping his
team win the youth championship the following year.
After just 1 year at Nacional, he was offered a youth contract by bigwigs
Sporting Lisbon, who are internationally renowned for having one of the
best youth training facilities in the World.

The young player fit right in at Sporting and started scoring regularly,
although he was way too fond on his dribble at that point. Despite this
short coming, he was taken in to various levels of the Portugal national
youth squad, finally getting his big break at the UEFA under 17
Championship in 2001.

His great performance there drew the eyes of Liverpool's scouts, but
Ronaldo was just 16 years old and the Liverpool officials decided he
needs more time in the Portuguese league before they sign him.

Cristiano Ronaldo Biography – Sporting Lisbon

Being taken in the senior squad of Sporting meant the young player's
first contact with professional football. Although he didn't play
regularly, the few moments that he did get on the pitch were greeted with
cheers from the Sporting fans, who loved Cristiano Ronaldo's soccer
tricks. In 2 seasons with Sporting's senior squad, Ronaldo got to play 28
matches, scoring 3 times before he was picked up by Manchester United's
scouts, at age 18.

Cristiano Ronaldo Biography – Manchester United

Sir Alex Ferguson, manager and coach of Manchester United desperately
needed a quality right midfielder in 2003, as David Beckham had just left
the club for Real Madrid.

Bringing an 18-year old Portuguese player to replace an international
super-star like Beckham didn't seem like a good idea at first, but from
his first season Cristiano Ronaldo's goals proved decisive and he quickly
gained the love of the Red Devils' fans.

In his following seasons at Manchester, with more and more trust coming
from Sir Alex Ferguson and the team's fans, Cristiano Ronaldo developed
into an extraordinary player that is now feared by even the sturdiest
defenders out there.

Despite the fact that he is just 22 years of age right now, Cristiano
Ronaldo already has 208 professional matches and 53 goals (190 matches
and 50 goals for Manchester, the others for Sporting) and 46 caps in the
national squad, with a tally of 17 goals for Portugal. Impressive stats
for such a youngster.

The best part is that with each passing year Cristiano Ronaldo improves
his game even further, so don't be surprised if in a couple of years he
steps up to become the greatest footballer in activity.
