Lord Cristiano at 33
One of the greatest in the history of football, Cristiano Ronaldo, is now 33 years old. On February 5, 1985, Cristian Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro suffocated in the Portuguese city of Funchal. Growing up in a modest family, from a very early age, he realizes that he has to fight a lot to achieve something. Among all my outstanding football qualities, his strong ambition and irreconcilability play a key role.
At 12 years he goes to Lisbon and sets his own path to glory. He was quickly spotted by genius Sir Alex Ferguson and made a jump from Sporting (Lisbon) to Manchester United. For much this step is too big and too hasty. Not for Chris. Without delay he began to build a name with supersonic breakouts on the left flank, phenomenal performances and goals.
After winning the Golden Ball and the Champions League trophy, he decided to take on a new challenge – to play in the ranks of the world’s most glorious club: Real Madrid. Since 2009, Ronaldo has crushed a record after a record with the Spanish colossus team. He wins the Champions League three times between 2014 and 2017. His biggest success, however, is certainly the triumph with Portugal at the European Championship in 2016.
Quietly, Chris reaches the record five “Golden Balls” and reminds critics that he is worthy of arguing for greatness with Lionel Messi. Strongly loved and heavily hated, Cristiano has always shown character and has escaped from the most difficult situations to show how big a fighter he is. At 33 he has achieved everything but wants more and more.
