Cristiano played for the Lisbon-based team from 2002 to 2003, before moving to Manchester United, and ultimately transferring to Real Madrid. He’s been with Real Madrid since 2009, and is arguably one of their best players, with an average score of 50 goals per season! The iconic forward athlete made his return on the field on Aug. 10, after tormenting a knee injury that occurred during the 2016 World Cup FINALS! What a rough way to end the tournament.
Now, he’s determined to prove he’s stronger than ever, and hopes to bump up his scoring average against former team, Sporting Lisbon. However, there are a few people who might be bitter to watch his comeback, like Sporting Lisbon president, Bruno de Carvalho. Turns out, Bruno wants Cristiano to RETURN to the Sporting Lisbon team, confessing, “Yes, without a doubt, I would love for Ronaldo to end his career here, at home.”
It seems everyone wants Cristiano on their team — including Justin Bieber, 22. The ‘Love Yourself’ singer is reportedly working with the soccer star on a brand new movie, that is expected to start filming in 2017. A fan of soccer, Justin is probably super excited to work with Cristiano and learn some brand new moves from the master himself.
