Cristiano Ronaldo began his professional career with Sporting Lisbon and before he officially joined Manchester United again, rumors were going around about his return to Sporting Lisbon. His mother, Dolores Aveiro, wants him to go back to where he first started before she takes her last breath. Her mother further said that if Cristiano Ronaldo cannot do it, then at least his eldest grandson Cristiano Jr should.
The club became the Portuguese champions for the first time in 19 years! As said by his mother, Cristiano Ronaldofollows Sporting. In his spare time, he watches their games.
“If it were my choice, he would already be here. He likes to watch Sporting games. I’ve already told him: ‘Son, before I die, I want to see you return to Sporting’. He says: ‘Let’s see’: But if it can’t be him, then Cristianinho!”
Dolores could not stop gushing about her grandson, Cristiano Jr who she says plays better than her son at just 11. Cristiano Jr has already expressed his desire to play for Sporting.
“At his age, he plays better than Ronaldo. At that age, Ronaldo didn’t have a coach but today Ronaldo is his son’s teacher. He’s already saying ‘Dad, when we move to Lisbon I want to play for Sporting’. Now he’s starting out at Manchester [United]. Seeing the two of them together at Sporting was my dream, it would be spectacular.”
Ronaldo’s eldest son, has followed his dad’s path and joined the Juventus academy but later he joined Manchester United academy. This year, Ronaldo left Juventus to join Manchester United. His contract with the club win end in 2023 but the terms included options for extension. Both father and son, are now part of the Manchester United.
Dolores could not stop there. She further mentioned that the number 7 jersey will be his when he joins Sporting Lisbon again. At the moment, the number 7 jersey belongs to Tabata.
It seems that Ronaldo is pretty close to her mom. Dolores was worried that her son would choose Manchester City, but her son assured her that he has picked Manchester United over Manchester City.
