Sporting CP's president said that the club could one day rename their stadium after Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Calling the stadium 'Cristiano Ronaldo' is an option that, right now, we are not against. It would be a source of great pride for us ... Cristiano Ronaldo is and always will be one of the great symbols in the club's history. We are very proud to be associated with Cristiano and that the name of the best player of the world is associated with Sporting," said Frederico Varandas.

Ronaldo joined the club at age 12 before eventually moving to Manchester United.

Varandas added that he wants Sporting youth to look up to Ronaldo.

"We want him to be an example for those in our academy, we want his image to be present in the lives of our young players."
