Christiano Ronaldo

Christiano Ronaldo expressed his wish to retire as early as next year. The 34-year old forward insisted he is happy at Juventus for the time being.

Christinao Ronaldo is considered as one of the greatest players in the history of soccer. He bagged five Ballon d’Ors and multiple trophies across Europe throughout his career.

Last season also has been fruitful to Ronaldo. He completed a move from Read Madrid to Juventus, winning the Serie A title and the Supercoppa Italia.

The Portugal superstar also scored 28 goals in 43 games in an impressive debut campaign in Italy.

By the end of the 2019-20 season, this eventful journey of the soccer legend may come to end. Though, Christiano Ronaldo signed a four-year contract in Turin last summer.

He expressed to TV1, “I don’t need football to live well, I am fine financially. What I need are attractive projects and Juve’s is one of them. I have always liked this team, they are the best in Italy and one of the best in the world.

“They have always fought to establish themselves in Europe. And after winning in England and Spain, I also won in Italy and I am happy to be here.

“I was worse in defeat a few years ago. If I lost, I didn’t have, I’d go into a room and left the next day.”

He added more, “With maturity, I learned that most important thing in life wasn’t football, obviously you have to be focused, because it’s your job, but you can also disconnect from it.

“I could end of my career next year, but I could also play until I am 40, 41 years old. I don’t know, but that’s what I always say is that you have to enjoy the moment.”
