Ronaldo looks to invest
Real Madrid star player Cristiano Ronaldo has chosen to invest a slice of his substantial of his earnings in an unusual purchase – Portuguese side Ribeira Brava.
The club are far from good – in fact, as it stands they sit at the very bottom of the third tier of Portuguese football with no accolades to their names.
But that has not deterred Cristiano who views it as an opportunity to rebuild the club from scratch, giving the team everything from a new name to new colours. Yes - you heard that correctly. Cristiano will be reshaping the club literally from top to bottom. A new team name, kit are hopefully the beginning of a new club in Ronaldo's eyes.
Ribeira Brava, a club in Ronaldo's home town of Madeira, hold a special place in his heart and he is said to be looking to invest heavily in an attempt to get the club from its low standings to the top of the Portuguese leagues and into the UEFA Champions League.
