Christiano Ronaldo, the best football player in history just received a specially designed diamond encrusted footwear ‘CR7‘ gift from Nike, days after he was named winner of the 2014 Ballon D’or. He is expected to wear this special gift on his next match which is scheduled for today 15th January, against Atletico Madrid.
Nike released the following statement as a tribute to the footballer:
“The micro-diamonds are remnants from larger stones that are painstakingly perfected by craftsmen. As the diamonds are refined & the details sharpened, tiny pieces are cut away, leaving micro-diamonds behind as evidence of work in progress. The commitment to keep chipping away at something already impressive reminded Nike’s design team of Ronaldo’s work ethic. While many see Ronaldo as the best in the world, he sees room for improvement.”
Ronaldo who recently beat Barcelona star Lionel Messi and World Cup-winning goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to receive the FIFA award for the world’s best footballer said after the winning the award:
“It’s been an unforgettable year. To win this trophy, a trophy of this kind, is something unique and all I can say is I want to continue working as I have so far, trying to go on to more titles – individual and as a team – for my mother, my father who is up there looking at there any my son.“
“I can see my mother, my family. I would like to thank all those who voted for me. My coach, my fellow player, the president of my club.”
“I want to get better as the days go by. I want to say to all the Portuguese that I never thought I could win this trophy on three different occasions.”
