Cristiano Ronaldo hints at acting career after football retirement
Speaking at a Dubai Sports conference on Saturday, Per Goal, Ronaldo said:
“Several years ago, the age of playing football was until 30-32, but now, you find those who are 40 years old playing on the field.”
“The moment my body is no longer responding in the right way on the field, then it would be the time to leave. My success in my field is the result of hard work, and a way of living. I work continuously to improve my mental and physical abilities.
“I hope I live more than 50 years to learn new things and face different challenges and try to find solutions for them. One of the things that I seek to challenge myself in, for example, is acting in a movie.
“I always recommend learning all that is new. This is what I always strive for. I always seek to educate myself, because my studies tend to answer many of the questions on my mind.
“We have to learn the best of others, and this is an important part in helping me achieve what I have reached now.”
Ronaldo spoke of his dedication to the game and credited it for his success before requesting not to misconstrue his words as narcissism.
“Maintaining my level of success in the past 15 years is mainly linked to my perseverance in being the best! I don’t want my words to be understood as narcissism” he said.
“The love of football is the main motive in achieving all the titles I ever won. There are no special miracles or secrets in my success story, or any other success story. Rather, it is a great dedication to what you do.
“At the age of 34, I still have that fitness through diligence and hard work to get titles.”
