Ronaldo has had quite an interesting childhood and still continues to lead a rather interesting life today.

Whereas he was popular with students at school, the same cannot be said for teachers. After suspension, his mother decided that it was time for him to focus on his love for football full time. This marked the beginning of his journey in the world of soccer, at least professionally.
