The 34-year-old football great said while clearing all the rumours of his shocking retirement, “age is just a number. It does not mean that at 34, 35, 36 you are at the end of your career. I can show that with my performances, how I play, the way I play, the way I still feel good, sharp, thinking about the game, more mature. This makes the difference”. Further, he also stated that he still has a Serie A, a Champions League, and a Cup to win in this season and Ronaldo will try his best efforts to clinch all these shining trophies. This bold statement of the great Portugal star has cleared the minds of his hardcore fans that he is not going anywhere so soon.
