MADEIRA – Cristiano Ronaldo unveiled his new museum in Madeira on Sunday and said he hopes to add La Decima and another Ballon d'Or to his collection in the near future.
Ronaldo flew to his native Madeira on Saturday after Real Madrid's 2-2 draw at Osasuna and was joined at the inauguration of the CR7 Museum by girlfriend Irina Shayk, teammate Pepe, Portugal coach Paulo Bento, Blancos' director of international relations Emilio Butragueno and a host of other prominent figures from Portuguese politics and sport.
The 28-year-old gave journalists a tour of the space ahead of the official inauguration later on Sunday and said he was proud to give something back to the people of Madeira.
"I'm a proud Portuguese and a proud Madeiran, so it means a lot to me to open this museum here," he told reporters. "It's a special day for me and a way of doing something for my people."
