Cristiano Ronaldo has opened up on his retirement plans, stating he is not sure when he will hang up his boots. Ronaldo, 38, is still going strong at the top level and has shown that there is some fuel left in his tank. The Portuguese striker is still fit as a fiddle and he is delivering for both the national team and his club Al-Nassr.
Ronaldo has scored 24 goals and provided 11 assists in 25 appearances across all competitions for Al-Nassr in the ongoing season. Furthermore, the linchpin had scored 54 goals in 2023 and ended as the highest goal-scorer of the year.
Ronaldo said he isn’t sure about his future as life is dynamic and he just wants to take one game at a time.
Ronaldo said in an interview with Record via the TheNassrZone, “As I often tell my friends, life is dynamic. Tomorrow is uncertain. I can finish my career at the end of this season, and I can play for another two or three years… I don’t know. To be honest.”
“As long as my head and body are fine, and I enjoy football, I will keep playing. When I feel like I’m no longer useful, I’ll be the first to make the move. I now feel good, and I feel satisfied and happy on the field, whether in the national team or in the club. I do what I like most, scoring goals and giving good performances. And keep going and enjoy”
Ronaldo confirmed that he will continue to play in Saudi Pro League for Al Nassr.
He added, “I will be 39 years old in a few days, and I will play this remaining season and another year in Al Nassr, which is what I want most & when I have 40 bullets as my friend Jose Semedo says, let’s see what happens then. If I play until the age of 40, it will be a great goal at this level & then, if it’s okay, 41, 42… we don’t know.”
Al-Nassr will take on Shanghai Shenhua in a club friendly on Wednesday.
