A super star

The football star Cristiano Ronaldo was born on February 5, 1985 on the island of Madeira, which is a few hundred miles south-west of Portugal. He grew up in a small house in the city of Funchal and began playing football for a youth team in Madeira, where his dad was the team's equiment manager. Cristiano Ronaldo was a huge football star on the Island but he moved 600 miles to Lisbon when he was just 12 years old to play for Sporting Lisbon's youth team. The move was a difficult one for Cristiano, since he was away from his family and many of his teammates made fun of his Madeiran accent.
While some kids chose to tease Cristiano about his accent, no one was teasing him about his football skills. His dazzling footwork and goal-scoring touch made him a teenage star. He played his first game for Sporting Lisbon in the Portuguese Super League when he was 17 and quickly became known as one of the most execiting young football players in the world.
Cristiano Ronaldo's talent caught the eye of Manchester United manager, Alex Ferguson, who bought him from Sporting Lisbon for §20 million US! Cristiano Ronaldo has had success playing for both Manchester United and for Portugal. He scored the opening goal for Manchester in their 2004 FA Cup victory and helped Portugal advance in the finals at Euro 2004. His fabulous footwork and good looks have now made Cristiano Ronaldo one of the most popular players in Europe. The teenage millionaire now wears number seven, the number of former Manchester star, David Beckham.
