Cristiano Ronaldo will turn 36 next month. In some parts of the game, the impression of age can be felt, but scoring goals is still as terrible as before. He has already scored 14 goals since returning to Manchester United this season.
Regardless of age, a footballer in such a form does not think of retirement. Cristiano Ronaldo, therefore, wants to continue the game for many more days. Specifically, one of the best of all-time wants to pursue a career up to the age of 42.
Ronaldo gave an interview to ESPN Brazil. “I am very happy to show that longevity as a player plays an important role in continuing to do well in top football, especially in my case,” he said of his two decades in professional football.
Speaking about his career, Ronaldo said, “I know my body will handle it well because I respect the body and value what the body says. It is important to have important moments in life, whether it is good or bad. When you fall to the ground, you have to have the strength to stand up again. I’m happy, I want to be here and see what happens. I want to see if I can play in 40, 41, or 42 years. But most importantly, the goal of the day now is to enjoy the moment.”
