This might be the most Cristiano Ronaldo move ever, but the Real Madrid super star is opening his own museum about himself. The museum will be located on the Portuguese island of Madeira, where he was born. Ronaldo’s career also began with the island’s local club FC Andorinha, where his father worked.
From the AFP:
Ronaldo said he would be there in person on December 15 for the opening of the museum in Madeira’s capital Funchal, which will showcase memorabilia including footballs, photographs and trophies.
He was speaking in Madeira, where he had travelled with his mother and young son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, to finalise plans for the opening.
The museum will open on December 15th and he will be there for the opening of the museum. The items on display will be pieces from his collection including soccer balls, photographs and of course trophies. Ronaldo also said he is reserving a spot of the 2013 Ballon d’Or trophy should he win.
From Goal.com’s Ben Hayward:
The museum is a dream for Cristiano. He wants to give something back to Madeira and he came up with the idea along with his mother. It’s a family project. He also wants to invest in other ventures in future on the island. This museum is just the start.
Following his impressive play in Portugal’s World Cup playoff against Sweden the museum could attract a lot of visitors early on.
