Museums normally display exhibits on people, places and events that have historical significance from many years ago, but world football star Cristiano Ronaldo has decided to build one for the present.
According to the AFP, the Portugal captain is going to construct a museum that will “showcase memorabilia from his hugely successful career, which began in the 1990s on the island of Madeira.” The report also states that the building is scheduled for a Dec. 15 opening.
As one of the best soccer players of his era, Ronaldo certainly has enough trophies, medals, jerseys and other items from his ongoing career to fill several rooms at his museum.
Among the accomplishments on his professional resume are the 2008 Ballon d’Or, the 2007-08 and 2010-11 European Golden Shoes, and winners medals from three Premier League titles (2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09), the 2004 FA Cup, the 2007 FA Community Shield, the 2008 UEFA Champions League, the 2011-12 La Liga title and the 2010-11 Copa del Rey.
For soccer fans who have enjoyed his incredible performances for Manchester United and Real Madrid over the last decade, Ronaldo’s new museum will be a must-see tourist attraction when visiting Portugal.
