Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly made it clear that he’s ending his glorious football career at Real Madrid.
This assertion is coming on the heels of earlier confirmation from club’s president Florentino Perez, who says CR7 isn’t going anywhere away from Santiago Bernabeu.
The Portuguese superstar is promising he will stay at Real Madrid beyond the age of 40 and retire at Santiago Bernabeu.
Speaking in a chat with AS, CR7 who’s currently went on holiday in Ibiza prior to Euro 2016 kick-off says he can only see his future in the Spanish capital.
“I’m super happy to have won La Undecima and now I’m thinking about the Euros. We want to give great joy to Portugal by winning it, which is something the Portuguese people deserve,” Ronaldo said.
“I’m going to retire at Real Madrid when I’m over 40. I’m very happy here and I work hard to achieve that.”
During the brief, Ronaldo showered praises on FC Porto’s new coach Nuno Espirito Santo, who was formerly at Valencia. CR7 said the ex-goalkeeper is ‘a great Coach who did an extraordinary job’ at Mestalla.
Although Ronaldo has already distinguished himself as his country’s leading goalscorer of all time, the media isn’t yet satisfied with his performance at major international tournaments.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Portugal warmed-up for Euro 2016 with a 7-0 mauling of Estonia at Lisbon’s Stadium of Light on Wednesday.
The Real Madrid star hit the target twice in nine minutes late in the first half.
“Today we showed that the team is doing well on all levels. We scored seven goals but that doesn’t mean so much. We have to keep our feet on the ground,” Ronaldo said after the game.
“It’s a difficult competition to win and we’ll take it match by match.”
