Cristiano To Open Museum Dedicated To Him

Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo is set to open a museum on his home island Madeira.

The 28-year-old Ballon d’Or contender will use the museum to showcase memorabilia from his successful career, which began in the 1990s on the island of Madeira for local club FC Andorinha.

Ronaldo is currently side-lined after his recent thigh injury and his coach Carlo Ancelotti has given him extra time away from the Spanish capital as he is already suspended for his side’s upcoming Copa Del Rey clash.

The Portugal international had travelled to Madeira this week to finalise plans for the opening of his museum on the 15th December.

A source close to the superstar was quoted, “the museum is a dream for Ronaldo. He wants to give something back to Madeira.”

“He also wants to invest in other ventures in future on the island. This museum is just the start.”

Ronaldo left Madeira at the age of 12 to join Sporting Portugal and started his international career when Sir Alex Ferguson signed him for Manchester United in 2003.

Amongst many accolades Ronaldo won the Ballon d’Or in 2008 and this year again competing against his long standing rival Lionel Messi.
