While Cristiano Ronaldo proving himself as one of the fittest footballers in the world right now, the Portuguese star will turn 36 this February. However, he doesn’t have any plan to retire anytime soon. He also showed no sign of slowing down on his goal-scoring legacy as scored 31 goals in the 2019-20 Serie A season. He also scored 12 goals in his 10 league appearances this season now.
Only three players, Gunnar Nordahl, Omar Sivori, and Felice Borel, scored more goals than Cristiano Ronaldo in a single calendar year. The Portuguese star scored a record 33 foals in the Italian top-flight league. That feat also put him ahead of Robert Lewandowski, the current Best FIFA Men’s Player award winner.

The Portuguese player, on the other hand, recently received the Player of the Century award at the Globe Soccer Awards. And while talking about his future plans, he told BBC Sports, “It doesn’t matter the age. What is important is the mind.” He then further added, “It doesn’t matter if Cristiano Ronaldo is good, you don’t know tomorrow what is going to happen. I live in the present, at the moment.”
Cristiano Ronaldo said, “The moment is good, I feel happy, I feel sharp and in a good moment in my life. I hope to play many, many years more but you never know.” He then also expressed his concern about the current football scenarios without any fans. He said, “I don’t like to play in the stadiums without fans, it’s like going to the circus but you don’t see clowns.”

The Juventus star said, “The pandemic has made people crazy. I hope soon they can open the gates of the stadiums.” He then also hoped for the quick return of the fans in the football matches while cheering for their favorite teams. He said, “We have to live with that, we have to try to do a normal life but of course we have to respect the rules. But to play without the fans, I really don’t like it.”
CR7 recently also talked about his son and said, “We’ll see if my son will become a great footballer. He has potential. He is fast and dribbles well, but that is not enough. I always tell him that it takes work and dedication to have success.” He said, “I won’t pressure him to become a footballer, but if you ask me if I want him to, yes I would like it. The most important thing is to become the best at whatever he does, whether it is as a footballer or a doctor.”
