'Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity'
Cristiano Ronaldo dreamed of one thing as a child – to play for Real Madrid. Via United, he trusted in his dream, and developed into one of the finest footballers the world has ever seen. Real, you could say, was his ‘gate to eternity’.
But what happens when you wake up from the dream...?
After celebrating a casual brace against Granada on Sunday evening – his 113th and 114th league goals in 104 games for Real – in a rather more-subdued-than-usual fashion, he was asked after the game why the glum reaction. His response was somewhat intriguing...
"I am sad and the club knows it, that's why I didn't celebrate the goals. The people in the club know why."
Has Ronaldo grown tired of Madrid? Is ‘living the dream’ not all it’s cracked up to be? And most importantly: has the grass actually always been greener in Manchester, he’s only just begun realising it? Well, it’s worth dreaming about, isn’t it?
