Cristiano Ronaldo has stated that he still has ‘four or five years’ remaining in his career and that he wants to achieve more achievement before retiring.
The Man United forward, who turned 37 earlier this month, has had a difficult start to life back in the Premier League with the Red Devils, scoring nine goals in 22 appearances, which isn’t very impressive by his high standards.
Speaking to DAZN, Ronaldo said:
“It’s hard to say that I don’t want more, because if I’m at a club that gives me the opportunity to win more things, why not? And in the national team too. I know I don’t have many years left playing, four or five more, we’ll see, and I want to win more things,” Ronaldo said.
“You have to be intelligent and know that at 18, 20, or 25 you are not the same as at 35. And that is the maturity, the experience, the intelligence to understand that maybe you lose some things to win others and have the right balance to continue competing and be at the highest level.
“That’s not easy, but it seems like it to me, because I show year after year that the numbers speak for themselves. I don’t have to tell you that I’m very good, because the numbers are there.
“The facts are facts, the rest is not It doesn’t matter at all. That’s why I’m very happy with my form, I’m still scoring goals, helping people, teams, both in the national team and at Manchester United and that’s why I want to continue like this.”
United are out of both domestic cups and are behind Premier League leaders Manchester City by 17 points, leaving the Champions League – where they drew 1-1 with Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their last 16 – as their sole remaining hope of silverware.
