The University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada is now offering a sociology degree that focuses on Cristiano Ronaldo and the cultural phenomenon around him, Bleacher Report says.
“Ronaldo is the center of every discussion, class meeting revolves around Ronaldo initially. And then we explore, we broaden out to larger themes.” – said Professor Luis Aguiar.
Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the best football player on the planet. The 30-year old Portuguese superstar has already scored 44 goals in total since the start of 2014/2015 season.
Professor Luis Aguilar was glad his students were well informed about Cristiano Ronaldo's recent achievement.
