Ronaldo’s mother was also present at Old Trafford, while the Portuguese star had not actually allowed that. Dolores Aveiro burst into tears when her son hit the target for the first time.
“I once told her: I don’t have a father anymore, so I don’t want to lose my mother either. So you don’t watch important games of mine anymore,” said Ronaldo. “She always gets so nervous, I don’t understand why. She has passed out twice in stadiums and is always pacing at home. So I always make sure people are with her.”
