A married mother of two has come forward to identify himself as one of the McDonald & # 39; s employees that Cristiano Ronaldo citizens cared for when he begged for food as a child.
The 34-year-old Juventus attacker launched a call to find the mysterious McDonald & # 39; s staff, including one named Edna during an ITV interview with Piers Morgan.
He remembered how he and other young people would knock on the door of a McDonald's next to the stadium in his Sporting Lisbon boys club and get food from Edna and & # 39; two other girls & # 39; he had never found again.
The five-time winner of the Balloon d & # 39; Or said he would like to invite the trio to Turin or Lisbon to dine with him if they were ever found.
Today Paula Leca came forward to say that she was one of three women and would like to accept a dinner invitation from the star soccer player.

Today Paula Leca came forward to say that she was one of three women who would hand out hamburgers to the boys of Sporting Lisbon and would like to accept a dinner invitation from the star soccer player
Cristiano Ronaldo with his parents at the age of 10. He admitted that he never really knew his father
She told the Portuguese radio station Renascenca: & They would appear in front of the restaurant and if there were any hamburgers left, our manager would give us permission to transfer them.
& # 39; One of the boys was Cristiano Ronaldo, who was perhaps the most timid of them all.
& # 39; This happened almost every night every week. & # 39;
& # 39; I still laugh about it now. I had already told my son about it, but he thought it was a fib because he couldn't imagine his mother Cristiano Ronaldo ever giving a hamburger.
& # 39; My husband already knew, because sometimes he met me & # 39; Picking up his work overnight and he saw him too.
& # 39; It's funny to go back now to something that happened so long ago. It shows its humility. At least people now know that this is not an invention.
The mother of two said the offer from Ronaldo & # 39; shows his humility & # 39;
Mrs. Leca said today: & I am thinking here of the twists and turns in life. I didn't think Karma existed, but I'm starting to believe it exists. & # 39;
& # 39; If he invited me to dinner, I would certainly go. The first thing I would do is say thank you and during the meal we have time to remember those times. & # 39;
Paula, whose husband is called Jose Costa and told the radio station that she unfortunately had lost contact with her former boss Edna, went to Facebook today to say: & I am thinking of life's changes here.
& # 39; I didn't think Karma existed, but I'm starting to believe it exists. & # 39;
A friend replied: & # 39; Good people always deserve good things. & # 39;
Ronaldo was praised this week after his interview with Morgan in which he struggled with fame and the memory of his father.
Ronaldo said that wherever he goes, he is harassed by fans and it makes his family nervous.
Viewers praised Ronaldo during the interview because he was honest, open and sober.
At one point, Ronaldo broke into tears when he saw a clip of his father expressing his pride in him in an interview in 2004, shortly before his death.

The £ 530,000 per week football player, who has the most Instagram followers in the world and is worth a reported £ 500 million, also said that there are only four people in the world that he fully trusts.
During the interview, Morgan asked Ronaldo: & # 39; Are you stifling? & # 39;
The football player replied: & # 39; I am boring. Part of it is fantastic. Be famous, first page of the newspaper and TV. But after 15 years, after all this time, I want some privacy.
& # 39; My privacy has disappeared in the last ten years. I did not go to the park with my children. When I go, people show up and my children are nervous, my girlfriend is nervous, I am nervous.
& # 39; If you are in public, you cannot be yourself. It's boring. I want to be free again.
& # 39; I'm not going to say names because I don't think it's fair. But I will say four people, 100 percent trust, four people.
& # 39; I have very good friends, family, but I trust 100 percent, they are maybe four people. This life is like that. & # 39;
Ronaldo also spoke about his family, including his girlfriend, and discussed the rape charge against him.
Fans went to social media to praise the football player and greet him for his honesty.
A fan wrote: & # 39; It is clear to see in the interview what a great, modest, emotional and down-to-earth person Cristiano Ronaldo really is.
& # 39; Yes, he can sometimes seem arrogant, but that's all because he wants to be the very best! Respect! Great interview. & # 39;
Ronaldo has four children and one day also talked about marrying his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez.
The footballer also spoke about his drive to be the best and how he thinks his strongest possession is his mind.
He said: & # 39; My obsession to win, to be successful. I worked for that. Talent is not enough.
Speaking of Georgina, Ronaldo said: & She helped me so much. Of course I am in love with her & # 39;

& # 39; I am addicted to winning, the success. I don't chase the records, they chase me. & # 39;
He admitted that his son would have the same drive, because he grew up in luxury compared to himself.
Ronaldo admitted that he wanted his son to suffer a little & # 39; so he would have the same drive to succeed.
He said: & # 39; I'm going to motivate and push him. I hope and pray that he will be like me
& # 39; He can be what he wants. Just a bit busy. & # 39;
Morgan also showed Ronaldo a clip of his father talking about him, making the football player in tears.
Ronaldo admitted he had never seen the clip before and said: & # 39; I have never seen the video. I've never seen that video. Unbelievable.
& # 39; I think the interview would be funny, but I didn't expect to cry. But I have never seen these images. I don't know where you … I need these images to show my family.
& # 39; But I really don't know my father 100 percent. He was a drunk person. I never spoke to him like a normal conversation. It was hard. & # 39;
Jose Dinis Aveiro was an alcoholic and died of liver failure in 2005 at the age of 52
Ronaldo was only 20 when his father died, which means that he missed many of the greatest moments of his football career.
These include winning five Champions League titles and five Ballon d & # 39; Ors, as well as leading his country to Euro 2016 and the Nations League glory. He also missed the birth of the four children of Ronaldo.
Ronaldo said his father was struck by wars in Mozambique and Angola and added: & # 39; To be number one and he sees nothing and he sees me no prizes to see what I became.
& # 39; My family sees, my mother, my brothers, even my old son, but my father, he has not seen anything and it was … he died young. & # 39;
When he questioned the rape allegations of the American model Kathryn Mayorga against him, Ronaldo admitted that 2018 was the most difficult year of his life.
However, he strongly denied the claims and admitted that they left him ashamed.
He said: & # 39; You feel so bad. & # 39;
& # 39; One day I was at home in the living room with my girlfriend and then the news that they are talking about Cristiano Ronaldo, this and that.
& # 39; You listen to your children coming down the stairs and you change channels because I was ashamed, I am ashamed.
& # 39; They play with your dignity. It is difficult. You have a girlfriend, family, children. I said to my mother: "Relax, your son, nothing is going to happen."
& # 39; But she is an older person. It was so hard. & # 39;
Ronaldo also revealed that he is planning to marry his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez one day.
Speaking of her, Ronaldo said: & She helped me so much. Of course I am in love with her.
& # 39; We will definitely be (married) one day. It is also my mother's dream. So one day. Why not?
& # 39; It's great. She is my girlfriend. We have conversations. I open the heart to her and she opens the heart to me. & # 39;
At the end of the interview, Piers Ronaldo also gave a personalized Arsenal shirt and asked how close he came to draw at the London club in the past.
In a lighter tone, Ronaldo also bragged about owning 17 cars, including Bugattis, Ferraris and Rolls Royces.
He also shared a story about how he and his friend Ricardo, a fellow soccer player, once used disguises to sneak into a club in Madrid for a New Year's Eve party.
Viewers were shown a picture of him and his friend wearing a wig and glasses, Ronaldo describing that they looked like rock stars.
He said it was & # 39; one of the best nights & # 39; of his life was because of the anonymity that the costume gave him.
