The decision was approved by members of the General Assembly and the club president Jose Bacelar, who confirmed on Friday this means that from now on no player can wear the number 7 jersey except Ronaldo himself or a direct descendant like his son. The Real Madrid player has been a honorary member of Andorinha since July.

Ronaldo played in the team from Madeira, his native land for two seasons between the ages of 8 and 10. After that he played at Nacional and then made the leap to Lisbon.
