Portuguese midfielder and Real Madrid ‘Galácticos’ Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most recognisable football players in the world: as guest speaker at your event he will bring a touch of class and wonder few other sportsmen in the world today could manage. It all stared back when the forward played for Sporting Clube de Portugal as a 16 year old. Before long, though, he was scouted by repeat Premier League Champions Manchester United and brought over to the club in 2003 for the princely sum of around £12 million.
During his time at Old Trafford, Ronaldo received consecutive Barclays Player of the Month awards, broke the 20 goals a season barrier in 2006-07 and also won both the Champions League and Premier League titles. After an incredible six years at the club in which he made the number 7 jersey (previously worn legends like George Best, David Beckham and Eric Cantona) all his own, Spanish giants Real Madrid prized him away from Manchester United for a record breaking £80 million. Now at the heart of the Madrid side, the Portuguese man also plays a key role in his international side with a career total of 32 goals in 87 games.
As inspiring to adult professionals as he is to keen young children, Cristiano Ronaldo – also known for his philanthropic work in support of Maderia’s 2010 – is one of many charming guest speakers looked after by our team of skilled agents.
