Cristiano Ronaldo was left in tears after watching a playback video of his late father.
In a recent interview with British Media icon Piers Morgan, Ronaldo opened up about many issues ranging from his failed transfer moves, to reaching the very top of football.
However, it was not until when they began to talk about one man that had been influential in some ways to his life.
When a video of his Dad talking about him was played, Ronaldo just couldn’t fight his tears as he expressed regret about his late father.
“My family see, my mum, my brothers, even my old son. But my father, he didn’t see nothing,” the Juventus star said.
It will be recalled that Ronaldo has always spoken fondly of his father in past interviews but Ronaldo expressed shock at seeing this video as he said he had never seen it.
He further one went on to speak about how his Dad never got to see him win awards and go to the very top
“To become the number one and he doesn’t see anything. He doesn’t see me receive awards,” Ronaldo added.
Ronaldo lost his dad in 2005, 3 years before he won his very first Balon d’or award , after a short illness
The Portuguese captain has also led Portugal to one UEFA Euro title and UEFA Nations League title, their two trophies in international competitions in a very successful career.
