An emotional Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t hide his joy nearing the opening of his CR7 Museum in his home town of Funchal, Portugal.
The 29-year-old donated more than 55 objects to contribute to an exhibition aimed towards celebrating the midfielders career so far.
Real Madrid’s Director of Institutional Relations, Emilio Butragueno, Director of Football, Miguel Pardeza and teammate Pepe accompanied the player on a special visit to the Museum.
Ronaldo told Real Madrid TV: “It’s really wonderful and a source of pride and excitement. I’m happy, excited and thrilled.
“I hope to win many more titles and trophies. I’ll always have a place for the Décima. Hopefully it’s this year”.
The Museum holds a special meaning to the number 7, who feels proud to see his career go noticed in the place he grew up.
“It’s a chance for everyone who likes Cristiano Ronaldo to get to know me better: my fans and the people of Madeira where I grew up and where I spent my childhood.” He said.
“It’s really wonderful and a source of pride and excitement.”
The Museum, that displays 26 signed hat-trick balls, opens on the 17th December.
