Luca Caioli

Ronaldo – 2017 Updated Edition

A three-time winner of the FIFA Ballon d'Or, Cristiano Ronaldo's status as a footballing superstar is unquestionable.
His insatiable desire to succeed and to improve himself year-after-year has seen him win almost everything there is to win in the game, including his first international silverware: a Euro 2016 winner's medal. Here, Madrid-based journalist Luca Caioli tells the inside story of the global superstar, featuring insights from those who know him best: coaches, teammates, girlfriends and even the man himself.
Updated to include all the action from the 2016/17 season, the year after he claimed his third Champions League winner's medal and became the tournament's all-time top goalscorer. Ronaldo lays bare the career of a modern footballing icon.

    Scolari and the national directors offer Ronaldo the option of leaving Moscow immediately to be with his family. But CR7 says no, he wants to stay with the team, and he asks Scolari to let him play. ‘I wanted to play. That was all I knew how to do,’ Cristiano will later explain. ‘I wanted to show everyone that I was able to compartmentalise, that I was a consummate professional and that I took my work seriously. I wanted to play that match in honour of my father. I wanted to score a goal for him. I was testing myself and all the people who love me.’

    I’d like to be remembered as a role model, as a footballer who always gave a hundred per cent, who put on a good show – and who won absolutely everything.’
