Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Carlos Tevez… just three world footballing legends to be born on star-studded February 5 – The Sun

IF you should happen to have a child born on February 5, go out and buy them a football and a pair of boots immediately…

Why's that you ask? Well, there is a pretty good chance they will go on to become one of the best footballers on the planet, that's why.

If you don't believe me, just check out a list of some of the names to be born on the fifth day of the second month…

For starters, how about Juventus and Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo?

The former Manchester United man, 36 today, has won almost everything there is to win in football – the Premier League, LaLiga, Serie A, the Champions League, European Championship, the Ballon d'Or, you name it, he's won it.

All that to go with a string of stunning partners, a host of top cars, a modelling career and luxury homes all over the planet – CR7 has done pretty well for himself.

Then there's Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil wiz Neymar – who cost a cool £198million – another to born on February 5 and is 29 today.

But it's not just those two – Carlos Tevez was also born on February 5 and will celebrate his 37th birthday back in his native Argentina.

The Argentine star has played for Manchester City, Manchester United and Juventus in his distinguished career before becoming the highest-paid player of all time, taking home £615,000-a-week in China.

Stars born on February 5

Cristiano Ronaldo – 36
Neymar – 29
Carlos Tevez – 37
Gheorghe Hagi – 56
Adnan Januzaj – 26
Patrick Roberts – 24
Jordan Rhodes – 31
Vedran Corluka – 35
Rodrigo Palacio – 39
Giovanni van Bronckhorst – 46
Billy Sharp – 35

However, after a dud spell in the Chinese Super League, Tevez is back at boyhood club Boca Juniors as he brings the curtain down on his long career.

That's already three of the best players on the planet, but there are also stars from years gone by making the list, such as Gheorghe Hagi.

Likened to a certain Argentinian ace, Hagi was given the nickname "The Maradona of the Carpathians" for his skill.

Elsewhere a host of current and ex-Premier League also share the February 5 birthday.

Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes, 31, and ex-Manchester United ace Adnan Januzaj, 26, were also born on that day.

Man City's 24-year-old wonderkid Patrick Roberts – on-loan at Derby – and Sheffield United star Billy Sharp, 35, are just two more.

Former Tottenham man Vedran Corluka, 35, and ex-Argentina international Rodrigo Palacio, 39, are just two others to make the list, along with former Arsenal ace Giovanni van Bronckhorst, who turns 46 today.

But the freaky footballing date doesn't just relate to players…

West Ham co-owner David Sullivan, 84, and 52-year-old actor Michael Sheen, who played Brian Clough in the film The Damned United, were also born on February 5… the same as ex-England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson, 73.

But what kind of sorcery could possibly hand people born on February 5 this fate?

Well, world-renowned astrologer Shelley von Strunckel claimed this is no mere coincidence.

She claimed: "Aquarians are geniuses, they think on their feet. They make a decision quicker than anyone else."

So there you have it. It's a done deal: If you're born on February 5, you'll become a star…
