Man Utd's Ronaldo would burst into tears as junior player - Mum

Manchester United wing dazzler Cristiano Ronaldo would often burst into tears when playing junior football, says Mum Dolores Aveiro.

Dolores reveals: "When he got home from school I'd tell him to do his homework but he'd say he didn't have any. I'd be making dinner and he would grab some fruit, jump out of the window and run off to play football with his friends.

"He'd get upset very easily. He would cry if a team-mate failed to score after his pass had given him a chance."
