It cannot be denied that Cristiano Ronaldo is at the top of his game since he already scored 504 goals in 760 appearances that it’s almost a wonder if there is anything that the 30 year old Soccer player has a hard time accomplishing. It turns out that Ronaldo is having difficulty improving his game because he’s already the best.
In an interview, the three-time winner of the title “World Footballer of the Year” said that his goal is really to just maintain his game while he is in his prime and to be able to play the game he loves for at least five more seasons.
“I don’t need to say ‘I’m in the history of football, I’m a legend’. The numbers say everything” Ronaldo said. It is difficult to argue with his numbers since he scored 118 goals for Manchester United, 326 goals for Real Madrid, and is currently the Union of European Football Associations (EUFA) Champions League’s top scorer with 82 goals, overtaking Lionel Messi whose record stands at 77 goals.
“I just want to maintain because this is I think the most difficult part for a football player,” Ronaldo said. The football star played for Manchester United before transferring to Real Madrid for £80 Million or $132 Million in 2009 with a contract until 2018. When asked whether he would consider returning to his old team, he said he doesn’t know for sure. “At this moment I’m so glad and happy here in Real Madrid but the future nobody knows,” Ronaldo answered.
Many have compared him to four time World Player of the Year, Lionel Messi but Ronaldo insisted that the comparisons are all just opinions. “It’s opinions, I respect the opinions. Maybe in your opinion Messi is better than me, but in my mind I am better than him,” he said.
As to how he stays motivated, Ronaldo just always keeps it positive in his mind. “In my mind, I’m always the best. I don’t care what people think, what they say. In my mind, not just this year but always, I’m always the best,” he said.
