Superstar footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo is searching for a mystery woman named ‘Edna’ and two other staff of McDonald’s, who gave him burgers when he was a poor kid in Portugal.
The 34-year-old striker diclosed this during his interview with Piers Morgan on ITV.
The former Real Madrid man said he used to beg for burgers from three McDonald’s staff on the island of Madeira when he was a poor kid.
Ronaldo, who is now rated among the five richest footballers in the world is hoping to track down the women who helped him when he was a kid.
“We were a little hungry. We have a McDonald’s next to the stadium, we knocked on the door and asked if they had any burgers,” he said on ITV.
“There was always Edna and two other girls. I never found them again.”
The restaurant is now closed but he wants to find Edna so he can “give something back” following her selfless gesture towards him.
“I asked people in Portugal, they closed the McDonalds, but if this interview can help find them, I would be so happy,” he added.
“I want to invite them to Turin or Lisbon to come have dinner with me because I want to give something back.”
