Cristiano Ronaldo's mother biggest wish

Cristiano Ronaldo's mother biggest wish

Dolores Aveiro, Cristiano Ronaldo's mother, had said her biggest wish before she passed away was for her son to return and play for his previous club Sporting Lisbon.

If that cannot happen, she would sort out for her grandson, Cristiano Jr, playing for Sporting Lisbon, who became Portuguese champions last season for the first time in 19 years.

There was supposition earlier this year that Portugal captain Ronaldo would return to Sporting, where he began his professional career. Still, he instead joined Manchester United for the second time.

Aveiro, a big Sporting Lisbon fan, said in a podcast.

"Ronaldo has to come back here,"

"If it were my choice, he would already be here. He likes to watch Sporting games. I've already told him: 'Son, before I die, I want to see you return to Sporting'.

He says:

'Let's see': But if it can't be him, then Cristianinho!"

Ronaldo's eldest son, Cristiano Jr, is at Manchester United's academy, playing at Juventus' academy.

The proud grandmother said of her 11-year-old grandson.

"At his age, he plays better than Ronaldo," 

"At that age, Ronaldo didn't have a coach, but today Ronaldo is his son's teacher. He's already saying, 'Dad, when we move to Lisbon, and I want to play for Sporting.' Now he's starting at Manchester [United]. Seeing the two of them together at Sporting was my dream. It would be spectacular."

She then joked:

"Today the number 7 jersey [at Sporting] is [Brazilian attacking midfielder] Tabata, but when Ronaldo comes it will be his!"

Ronaldo, 36, signed a two-year contract at Manchester United, with an option of extending it for a further season.

Though her dream has yet to materialize, Dolores Aveiro says she is delighted that her son chose to return to United and not join city rivals Manchester City.

She said.

"On the TV there was talk of Manchester City, but he said to me 'Mom, don't worry about what they're saying because I'm going to Manchester [United]," 

"I said I liked that a lot and he pleased me."

The former Real Madrid star wrote about his return to United:

I'm back where I belong! Let's make it happen once again!"

In his first game back at United, Ronaldo scored two goals in a 4-1 win over Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Sept. 11.

His mother was in attendance and said of the experience: "To see the stadium full, with 75,000 people singing his name was a great emotion."
