Cristiano Ronaldo, talks about his introduction to the sport as a child. Everyone in Ronaldo’s family loved soccer and he grew up playing in the streets with his friends. Ronaldo says that one day his father, who worked in a soccer club, asked him why he didn’t come in and play when he was working. From that point on, Ronaldo would go in, train and get help from his father. He liked being part of a team and he played to enjoy himself. Ronaldo says that back then, he knew he was different than the other players, but he didn’t think that one day he would become a pro. However, after three or four years, Ronaldo says he started to think about which professional teams he might want to join. He was watching a lot of walk-ups and games, and his dream to become a professional soccer player was growing stronger. #cr7drive
