What Cristiano Ronaldo Said About Retiring From Football :
Cristiano Ronaldo has confident Juventus supporters and his legions of fans worldwide that at 34, he’s not prepared for retirement yet.
“Age is just a number. It does not mean that at 34, 35, 36, you are at the end of your career,” Ronaldo said at a news conference ahead of Juventus’ Champions League match against Lokomotiv Moscow on Tuesday.
“I can show that with my performances, how I play, the way I play, the way I still feel good, sharp, thinking about the game, more mature. This makes the difference.”
Ronaldo, who is within the second season of a four-year deal at Juventus, had sparked concern among his fans once he said in an interview published some weeks past that he was starting to fancy seeing himself “outside of football, thus who knows what is going to happen within the next year or two?”
He recently scored his 700th goal as a professional while on international duty with portugal and has been nominated for a record sixth Ballon d’Or award, which would break his tie of 5 with Lionel Messi.
