Emotional reaction from Cristiano Ronaldo as Piers Morgan shows Juventus ace video of father

Cristiano Ronaldo cried after being shown a video of his late father by Piers Morgan, as the Juventus striker revealed details about his life before he was a footballer.

Cristiano Ronaldo was left in tears after being shown previously unseen footage of his late father by Piers Morgan .Ronaldo’s father, Jose Dinis Aveiro, passed away in 2005 from liver failure, after alcohol abuse.

The Portuguese star was just two years into his Manchester United career when his father died, and Ronaldo broke down in front of Morgan when he discussed their relationship.

Morgan uncovered rare footage from Norwegian TV, showing an interview with Ronaldo’s father, for his ITV show ‘Cristiano Ronaldo Meets Piers Morgan’.

The video showed the 34-year-old’s father saying how proud he was to “see his son in this position”.

The former United and Real Madrid forward needed a tissue to dry his eyes, before telling Morgan that he’d never seen the video.

“Unbelievable,” he said. “I didn’t expect to cry. I never saw this. I don’t know where you got it from.

“I really don’t know my father 100 per cent. He was a drunk person. I never speak with him in normal conversations. It was hard.

“Yes, he treated me unbelievable. I was like the diamond of the family. He knew I would be a football player.

“For me it makes me sad because everything… [breaks down].

“All my family see [my success]; my mum, my brothers, even my old son.

“But my father, he didn’t see nothing, and he died young. But, it is what is is. Maybe I get everything in football because he’s in the sky and looking down on me.”

During the candid interview, Ronaldo also described his life living in poverty in Madeira as a young boy.

His family didn’t have much money, and he’d often hang around a local McDonalds hoping to be gifted some leftovers from the employees.

He took his soon, Cristiano Junior, to his old home, and described the disbelief on his face when he saw the place his superstar dad used to sleep.

Ronaldo is in the midst of his second season with Juventus having left United for Real before heading to Turin after nine years in Spain.

Chelsea former midfielder Oscar Emboaba has set his sight on a return to Stamford bridge, years after departing the Premier League for the Chinese Super League, sources are claiming. 

The Brazilian has fully discovered his form in the Chinese League for ShanghaiSIPG where he racked up 14 goals and 19 assist in 41games across all competition.

Chinese Papers are now reporting a sensational return for the former Chelsea star in the January transfer window, with the reports believed to be true. 

Since moving to Shanghai, Oscar has lost his place in the Brazilian squad and is said to want it back.

Sources close to the board at Chelsea are also said to be pondering the move for the 28years old who is said to still be held in high regards at Stamford bridge. 

One was quoted as saying “Oscar didn’t live up to the hype and expectation we had for him but that could be forgivable considering his age then. He has grown as a player now and has is heart set with Chelsea. He is surely one of the players being considered to strengthen the squad.”

Oscar’s move to the Chinese League was money driven with the player explaining that at “certain stage of one’s life, you consider other factors before yourself.”

A loan move for the midfielder may be on the table with Chelsea maintaining a good relationship with Shanghai SIPG.
