Cristiano Ronaldo Father: How Superstar Reacted to His Father’s Death

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s response to his father’s passing was disclosed by former Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.

In 2003, when Ronaldo made his senior Selecao debut, Scolari was Portugal’s manager.

Before departing in 2008 to join Chelsea, he oversaw the team for five years.

The Brazilian manager claimed that he had to inform Ronaldo of his father’s passing in 2005, adding that the forward decided to participate nevertheless.

“When the news got to us, before a game against Russia, nobody knew how to tell him, and nobody wanted to.

“So I told them I would do it as I knew how it was to lose a parent. I had lost mine a few years before,” he said.

“The next day, Cristiano played a marvellous game and returned to Portugal. He asked to play. He said: ‘I can’t do anything for my father today, so I’ll play tomorrow and then I’ll go.'”
