The woman Cristiano Ronaldo said had served him free hamburgers in McDonald’s as a child has come forward and identified herself as a 36-year-old named Edna Caldas.
She has come out after Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo, in an ITV interview with Piers Morgan, appealed to find the Mysterious McDonalds employees who used to serve him Burgers for free.
"We were hungry. We had a McDonald's next to the stadium. We would always also go to the back door and knock and ask if they had any burgers left," Ronaldo had told Morgan.
"“There was always Edna and two other girls. I never found them again. I asked people in Portugal, they closed the McDonalds, but if this interview can help find them, I would be so happy. I want to invite them to Turin or Lisbon to come to have dinner with me because I want to give something back.” " - Cristiano Ronaldo
According to a report in Mirror UK, Edna told Portuguese sports daily Record, “I’m happy and it just shows how humble he is. This was something that all happened such a long time ago. I’m really happy at what he’s gone on to become. I never thought he would remember me so many years on.”
“It shows how wonderful he is that he hasn’t forgotten small things like this from his past,” she added.
Edna Carina Emanuel Caldas claimed that she and Ronaldo became really good friends after she got to know him well and she also went for a coffee with him once, reports Mirror UK.
Paula Leca, one of the other two employees who used to give him free burgers, told Portuguese radio station Renascenca, “They would appear in front of the restaurant and when there were hamburgers left over our manager would give us permission to hand them over.
One of the boys was Cristiano Ronaldo who was perhaps the most timid of them all. This happened almost every night each week,” reports Mirror UK.
