(P.S. Why does Ronaldo insist on the stupid thumb-up motion? Does he think he’s the Fonz?)
According to translations breaking on the wire, Ronaldo is quoted as saying “I am just so happy to be here. For me, I have made my childhood dream a reality, which was nothing less than playing for Real Madrid. I didn’t expect a jam-packed stadium – this is truly impressive.”
Ronaldo finished off by leading the thousands of fans in the stadium into a cry of “Hala Madrid!”
After the speeches it was time for Ronaldo to show off his ball juggling skills, but sadly CR9 had a little trouble playing keepy-uppy.
