Cristiano Ronaldo was not always this super-fit or as competent as he is today. He was a thin gangly youngster when he entered the game of football as a player on the field. But he has definitely progressed with the times and become the gorgeous hunk with superhuman abilities.
Recently, while receiving the trophy in Switzerland, Ronaldo confessed with tears in his eyes that he had been offered a chance to return to Manchester United. Ronaldo is the best and he knows it. Despite trying every trick in the bag, Manchester United couldn’t lure Ronaldo back to the fold. Ronaldo has been there and done that.
The soccer superstar exercises regularly in a Spartan manner. Besides weight training and sprinting, he has honed his body to that level of perfection which is necessary at the acme. Ronaldo is the ideal football player and his physique is unique in that it has very few flaws if any. And all this didn’t come for free.
He had to struggle for it. Yet he misses his friends in the old club where he partook in the game for six odd years. There are a lot of happy memories that he cannot forfeit even if he wanted to. Ronaldo’s journey is an epic adventure that has taken him to the top. Today he is with Real Madrid and counted among the cream of the crop. While receiving the award alongside Pele, Ronaldo got emotional and mentioned how it was such a great honor to stand with the living legend. Maybe it just goes to show that the rocky road to the top is not easy.
