He was born to the family of Jose Dinis Aveiro (FATHER) and Maria Dolores Dos Santos (Mother). His father was at a time an eqiptment manager at a boy's club. He was an alcoholic who can scarcely provide for his family. This made the mother work even harder as a cook and a cleaner to provide for her four kids.
Regardless of the father's alcoholism, Cristiano was very close to his father till his death in 2007 from a kidney related issue caused by alcohol. He had always wanted his father to submit self to a rehabilitation center to help arrest his drinking habit, but no, he refused.
Christiano Ronaldo was introduced to soccer at a tender age by his father, who was an equipment manager at a boy's club.
In 1992 he joined the first club as a teenager. Below is a detailed report of his career history till date.
