Cristiano Ronaldo is the world famous Manchester United and
Portuguese International footballer, admired around the world for
his unique style of play. Football fans recognise instantly how he
dribbles the ball, but there's a great deal about him that has
never been made public before.
Cristiano recognises that his youth does not yet give him the
right to produce an autobiography, and Moments does not
set out to be one. It is an invitation to the reader to share with
him some of the most fantastic moments of his career so far, and
get to know him a little better. As well as an array of sumptuous
photographs Cristiano Ronaldo gives his thoughts about his life so
far, both on and off the pitch.
Moments relates the story of his love of football from
early childhood in Madeira; the homesickness he suffered as a
result of the move, aged 12, to a football academy in Lisbon;
through to his time with Manchester United, the club which has
really made him famous and turned him into a football idol at only
22 years of age. He speaks of his love of playing for his country
and the love and support of his family, as well as the sad moments
in his life such as the death of his father. The book also shows
glimpses of him training and enjoying his leisure time, the charity
work he involves himself in, as well as off-field activities in
both his professional capacity and for pleasure.
He hopes that through these stories, and beautiful photographs
by Jorge Monteiro, you will get to know Cristiano Ronaldo a little
better. As you finish reading the last line he also trusts you will
have enjoyed the book with the same enthusiasm you would get from
watching him play football.
