ROAD TO LISBON | UCL quarter finals 13/14

Question: “Would you want your son to become a footballer?”

Cristiano: “I would love it. Really! Like I’ve said a few times, back when he was one year, two years old, he used to really love cars. Cars, cars, cars! But lately, he’s been obsessed with the ball!

“He’s obsessed with the ball! Sometimes when I come home tired after a match, my legs ache, my feet hurt… “Daddy! Daddy! Let’s play!” And of course I can’t say no, because that’s my dream: to see him playing. But the truth is he’s surprised me, because of the way he is about it. He’s already asked me for boots with studs and everything! I don’t know where it comes from. He’s kicking the ball well, too. “

Host: “Same as his father! A footballer!”

Cristiano: “Really, he’s surprising me! I’m very excited, and I would love it. But he’s still little and has a whole future ahead of him.”

Host: “Has he already signed for Mendes or am I allowed to talk to your son?”

Cristiano: “Oh, he’ll sign. If it’s up to me, he’ll sign!”

Ugh, how adorable!!

“You have to have a little more respect when you have a position like Blatter has. The things he’s said in public and hearing what he says in private attracts attention. Everybody’s noticed. I don’t know if it explains a lot of things, but it can explain some. They’re things that nobody understands. He’s a point of reference in the world of football. Whoever likes football has to like Cristiano Ronaldo. He has a great personality and he’s gotten where he is because of his valour and personality. It’s extra motivation for him.” - Arbeloa (x)

I fell in love with football as I would later fall in love with women: suddenly, uncritically, giving no thought to the pain it would bring” - nick hornby
