Cristiano Ronaldo, the Manchester United forward, has revealed that he would retire from playing football when he feels he is not capable of running, dribbling and shooting.
The Portugal captain said this ahead of Man United’s Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday.
Ronaldo became the all-time top scorer in international football last month.
When asked by Sky Sports on international retirement, the 36-year-old said: “But Why? I think it’s not my time yet. It’s not what people want, it’s what I want.
“It’s when I feel that I’m not capable to run, to dribble, to shoot, if the power is gone … but I still have that stuff so I want to continue because I’m still motivated. It’s the main word – [motivated] to do my stuff, to make people happy and my family happy and the fans and myself. I want to put the level even higher.
“You speak about Portugal but in the Champions League I have the most goals, the most wins, assists … everything. But I want to carry on. I like to play football. I feel good to make people happy.”
