Portuguese superstar forward Cristiano Ronaldo, former Manchester City FC footballer, and now he’s in Juventus. The player icon is supposed to be within his hometown instead of targeting to get the 6th Champions League title with his team at this age. Interestingly he has been thought that at the age of 35 he would be a “fisherman in Madeira” and still proved of Champions League honor with his club, Juventus. The football icon celebrated his birthday on Wednesday and bounced back on a glimmering career in which he was accepted as one of the all-time greats in football history. For the record, Cristiano has won top-flight championships om Spain, Italy, and England, Real Madrid and Manchester United in the Champions League, celebrated the Nations League honor with his beloved country and European Championship, especially he’s a five-time Ballon d’Or winner. With these great achievements beyond assumptions of Cristiano when he wants to be a professional football player. He was interviewed from Canal 11 Youtube channel and was asked by at 35 where is Cristiano Ronaldo right now? And he responded:
“A 35? I thought I was going to be a fisherman in Madeira, this never came into my mind. I wanted to be a professional footballer, but I didn’t think I was going to win everything I’ve won.”
The football superstar first raised the Champions League with the Red Devils within the 2007 to 2008 campaign and obtained four championship titles within five seasons with Real Madrid between 2013 to 2014 and 2017 to 2018. On his 1st campaign with Juventus concluded with international success in Serie A, however, the quarter-final loss against Ajax within Europe’s premier tournament which means Cristiano’s aspiration for continental success burns as strong as ever. He stated:
“To play at Juventus gives me the chance to win it again, We know it’s difficult, it depends on many factors, but it’s possible because we have a good team. We must take one step at a time going forward.”
The Juventus superstar was again asked if he has the best goal among the huge figures that he has generated for the team and his country throughout the years. While having a hard time to choose the best, he said that the popular overhead kick against his current club within the Champions League quarter-finals back then in 2018 was considered the hardest to pull off. He added:
“It’s not easy to pick one [to be the best], there are many and it’s difficult, their bicycle kick was certainly the most difficult of them all.”
The Juventus superstar has registered 19 times in as many Serie A played on this season, supporting the Turin club to a three-point lead over the nearest competitors Internazionale.
