That spark of joy in his heart when he saw his mother and sisters at the park to support him was priceless. “I will never forget this image- I was warming up and looked over and I saw my mom and sisters sitting together on the bleachers. They looked.. how do I say this? they looked cozy. They were kind of huddled close together, and they were not clapping or yelling, they were just waving to me, like I was in a parade or something. They definitely looked like they had not been to a football match before but they were there, That’s all I cared about” he narrated.

There’s no better feeling than to have your family support you in what you do and Cristaino Ronaldo knew it. “I felt so good in that moment. It meant a lot to me. It was like something switched inside of me. I was really proud. At that time we didn’t have much money. Life was a struggle back in Madeira. I was playing in whatever old boots my brother passed down to me or my cousins gave me. But when you’re a kid, you don’t care about money. You care about a certain feeling. And on this day, this feeling, it was strong. I felt protected and loved. In Portuguese we say ‘menini querido da familia“.

Apparently, his mother couldn’t handle all the nerve-wrecking moments that every football fan goes through and that may be a reason she wasn’t interested in to start with but did so to make her son feel ‘loved’ and ‘protected’. “When I started playing professionally at 17, my mother could barely watch because of the stress.
“She would come to watch me play at the Old Estadio Jose Alvalade and she so nervous during big games that she passed out a few times. Seriously, she passed out. The doctors started prescribing sedatives just for my matches. I would day to her ‘remember when you didn’t care about football?” Ronlado recalled.

“It was a joy that I did not understand until I was a father. There are so many emotions happening simultaneously that you cannot describe the feeling with words. The only thing I can compare it to is how I felt when I was warming up in Madeira and I saw my mother and sister huddled together in the stands” he said with great joy.
