All the soccer fans knew that one of the greatest football players ever to be born on this planet earth, Cristiano Ronaldo, has unmatched humanity and generosity besides his excellent football skills. Recently in an exclusive interview, a Portuguese lady came in front and identified herself as the McDonald’s employees who delivered burger to the football maestro during his poverty-stricken childhood days.
In a recent heart-touching interview with Morgan on ITV, Cristiano Ronaldo revealed that he used to wait outside McDonald’s to look for leftover food. The Juventus maestro said, “We were a little hungry. We have a McDonald’s next to the stadium, we knocked on the door and asked if they had any burgers.”
Cristiano Ronaldo stated, “There was always Edna and two other girls. I never found them again. I asked people in Portugal, they closed the McDonalds, but if this interview can help find them, I would be so happy.” And, he also added, “I want to invite them to Turin or Lisbon to come have dinner with me because I want to give something back.”
Shortly after that interview of Ronaldo, a lady name Paula Leca came forward in an interview with Portuguese radio station Renascenca and identified herself as one of the ladies that fed him food during his childhood days. Besides, she also recalled the incident and said, “They would appear in front of the restaurant and when there were hamburgers left over our manager would give us permission to hand them over.”
She said, “One of the boys was Cristiano Ronaldo who was perhaps the most timid of them all. This happened almost every night each week.” She then also added, “I still laugh about it all now. I had already told my son about it but he thought it was a fib because he couldn’t imagine his mum ever giving Cristiano Ronaldo a hamburger.”
Leca then said, “My husband already knew about it, because sometimes he would go to pick me up from work at night and he also saw him.” And, she then added, “It’s funny to go back now to something that happened so long ago. It shows his humility. At least now people know this wasn’t an invention.” Leca further told, “If he invited me out for dinner, I’d go for sure. The first thing I’d do would be to say thank you and during the meal, we would have time to remember those times.”
