He’s one of the biggest names in professional football, and one of the biggest sports stars in the world. The most expensive football player in history thanks to his huge, record-setting £80-million transfer contract, Cristiano Ronaldo has made waves in the world of football since he started playing professionally at the age of just 18.
Few teenage football wizards become professionals in their early youth. Cristiano Ronaldo, however, was playing for one of the world’s most renowned teams in his late teens. Signed to Manchester United in 2003, he became the club’s first player from Portugal, boasting an incredible £15-million agreement in his late teens.
Few people may know that Ronaldo was involved in a severe accident from which he emerged miraculously unhurt.
The year was 2009.Cristiano Ronaldo crashed his Ferrari sports car into a roadside barrier in a tunnel near Manchester airport. The car was badly damaged.But the 23-year-old Manchester United winger was not injured.
Ronaldo was on his way to training when the accident occurred, but he later arrived at the ground and took part in the training session. Witnesses said Ronaldo got out of the car and stood beside the wreckage, apparently not injured in the incident.Really a miracle.
