He has entertained fans for more than 15 years with his dazzling skills, goalscoring prowess and iconic celebrations, but all could come to an end soon according to Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Juventus star is one of the greatest players of all time having won five Ballon d’Or titles, five champions league, numerous league titles and also two international trophies with Portugal.
Even at the age of 34, the Portuguese icon he’s still going stronger. He finished as the second-highest goalscorer in the Italian Serie A last season as Juventus won their eighth successive Scudetto crown.
He was also the Old Lady’s top scorer in the champions league last season with six goals including a hattrick in the Round of 16 clash against Atletico Madrid.
While many feel he is still at the top of his game, he revealed he could call it quits next year- although he also admitted he could play until he is 40.
“I don’t think about that,” Ronaldo told reporters. “Maybe I can leave my career next year … but I can also play up to 40 or 41. “I don’t know. What I always say is to enjoy the moment. The gift is excellent and I have to continue to enjoy it.”
The former Real Madrid striker also believes he is the best player of all time, saying his records are proofs. “Are there any soccer players who have more records than me?” he asked. “I don’t think there are any footballers who have more records than me.”
