Cristiano Ronaldo used to cry when his team lost or even he failed to receive the ball at the match point.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been no stranger to tears over the years.
He wept when Portugal lost to Greece in the final of Euro 2004, where he was consoled by then manager Luiz Felipe Scolari.
And he also broke down when United won the Champions League final in 2008.
Ronaldo’s biggest crying display was when Portugal beat France to win Euro 2016 last summer.
But Santos claims the Real Madrid superstar used to shed tears for different reasons as a child.
“Cry-baby, yes, because Ronaldo already loved to win like he loves today,” Santos said.
“And when he lost and when other kids didn’t pass the ball to him he used to cry.”
Ronaldo’s fierce desire to win has led to him becoming one of the world’s most decorated players.
The 32-year-old has won 19 major trophies for club and country combined.
And he has also won the Ballon d’Or award on four separate occasions.
Even Cristiano Ronaldo has become La Liga’s all-time leading penalty scorer after netting from 12 yards for the 57th time in the top-flight during Real Madrid’s match at Villarreal. Ronaldo had been tied on 56 with Madrid legend Hugo Sanchez since scoring from the spot in Madrid’s 2-1 defeat to Sevilla on January 15.
