Cristiano opens up about retirement plan

Cristiano hints he could retire sooner rather than later in recent interview

October 1, 2019 By Ali M.
The Juventus superstar continues to keep his fans guessing as to when he will hang up his boots.

Not many players can claim they are 34 and going strong. Cristiano Ronaldo is one of those few, however, who despite reaching the latter years of his career, remains one of the most feared attackers in the world.

The Portuguese icon is not the same man he was two or three years back and thus manage his playing time. However, his great fitness levels and determination has kept him at the top as he continues to pursue silverware with Juventus.

Nonetheless, he is 34 and questions about his retirement plans are inevitable. The five-time Ballon d’Or revisited the topic, discussing when he will hang up his boots and call an end to his remarkable career.

The former Real Madrid superstar has previously flirted with the idea of playing past the age of 40. However, he has now given a cryptic answer this time around, hinting that he could move on to other projects soon, namely building his brand.

He told SPORTbible: "I still love football. I love to entertain the fans and the people who love Cristiano. It doesn't matter the age, it's all about mentality.

"The last five years I start to enjoy this process of seeing me outside of football, so who knows what will happen in the next year or two?" 

Ronaldo is not only a football but also a man with many business ventures. The 34-year-old, however, admits that he is a long way from reaching his goal when it comes to building his brand.

"It has taken many years of hard work, dedication, and passion to achieve what I have in football," the attacker added.

"Outside of football I'm not there yet, but I'm a competitive guy and I don't like to be the number two or number three. I always want to be number one. I will do it, 100 percent."

Ronaldo’s retirement is an inevitability that is closer than anyone would have liked. However, for the meanwhile, the Portuguese goalscoring machine continues to entertain the masses on the pitch and has his eyes fixed on winning more silverware with his Serie A employers.

Last season, he lifted the Italian top-flight title but missed out on the Champions League. The Old Lady are back in Europe and are gearing up for their second match of the new season which will see them host Bayer Leverkusen.
