WATCH: Cristiano Ronaldo on returning to Lisbon with Real Madrid
Last Updated: 22/11/16 9:23pm
Following #CR7Live event with Sky Sports earlier this month, Nike asked Cristiano Ronaldo about his return to Sporting Lisbon with Real Madrid.
The three time Ballon d'Or winner discusses where it all started, having moved away from his parents at the age of 11 to join Sporting's youth academy.
The video features interviews with his former PE teacher, childhood friend Miguel Paixao and Fernando Santos, who was in charge of Sporting when Ronaldo left for Manchester United.
Santos, who guided Portugal to Euro 2016 glory, joked that he should not have allowed Ronaldo to play United in a 2003 friendly, as he ultimately lost a "fabulous player".
Ronaldo gave United defenders a torrid time in that friendly, and just five days later, the 18-year-old headed to Old Trafford in a £12.2m deal.
The influential forward now heads back to Lisbon with Real in the Champions League on Tuesday night - and the current European champions can clinch qualification for the last 16 if they avoid defeat.
