Well, he did come from a poor background in the island of Madeira, Portugal. He has been very dedicated to training since young. When he turned 14 or 15 he moved to the mainland to join the football academy of Sporting Lisbon (paid by the club). From there on he practiced a lot and just got better and better, started playing for the main team and after some time was sold to Manchester United.

The thing is, everyone who grew up with him or lived in the academy says he was the most dedicated player they have seen. When the other kids went to sleep he would keep practicing till the high hours of the night, and would wake up earlier to do the same.
