How Cristiano Ronaldo became CR7

 Ronaldo: Why I wore the No.7 shirt for Manchester United

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was the driving force behind Cristiano Ronaldo wearing the famous No.7 shirt.

The Real Madrid star has become known as CR7 due to that fateful talk from the Scot when he first arrived at Old Trafford.

Ferguson told the young Ronaldo: “Look, I want you to wear the No.7 shirt,” the player revealed while speaking at a promotional event.“I was surprised because I knew of all the great players who wore that jersey. It was the start of my successful stage in football. I did not only improve my football skills, but also my physique. In my five years there, I learned the art of football. We won many things together. It was a dream for me.”
