At the age of 31, Cristiano Ronaldo is not the same young and explosive player that he used to be some time ago. The Portuguese star continues to break records and score goals on a consistent basis but he is reaching a point in his career when it’s time to start thinking about what his plans are after stepping down from the playing ground.
C.Ronaldo has already stated he is planning to continue playing at a high level for 4 or 5 more years which means that the Portuguese attacker still has plenty of time to achieve his goal of scoring at least 500 more goals before hanging up his boots.
Earlier in September of 2015, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 500th career goaland it was at that point when he revealed his intentions to score at least 500 more before retiring. C.Ronaldo also revealed details concerning his life after having retired and C.Ronaldo stated that he wants to ‘’live like a king’’ and not turn into a coach or have any big role in the world of football as the Portuguese just wants to settle down with his family and relax by having an ordinary life.
EventhoughC.Ronaldowants to stepawayfrom the world of football afterretiring and hedoes not wantto play such a big role in the sport, the star of Real Madrid seems to be destined in having a close relationship with football even after having retired as the Portuguese player has recently talked about his son as he stated that Cristiano Jnr is good enough to be a professional football player and he wants his son tobecome a footballer.
I want my son to be a player. I am a footballer and I want him to be one too. I think he has something of an athlete about him, he has athletic characteristics. Obviously he is very young, a baby, he’s only five but he loves football, that is a big plus.’’ Real Madrid’s C.Ronaldo said as he praised his son who might have what it takes to become a professional footballer.
