fter another year of success on the pitch for Cristiano Ronaldo
, the Portuguese international became visibly emotional when shown an unpublished video of his late father.
Having been present at Manchester United in 2005 when his father passed away due to liver failure, Ronaldo holds particular sadness that his father was never able to see his achievements in the subsequent years.
“My father was an alcoholic, he wasn’t the father I dreamed of having.
“I wanted him, of course, but we never had a good conversation. He never saw what I have become, he hasn’t seen me receive my awards.”
