Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said Cristiano Ronaldo will continue to score goals even at 75.
Ronaldo, who is now 36, has not slowed down since returning to United from Juventus in the summer.
He had netted nine times in 11 appearances and Guardiola feels the all-time leading scorer in men’s international football will not quench his thirst for goals, even when he hangs up his boots.
Guardiola said: “I think he has scored goals all his life and when he is 75 – maybe he will be retired – but at the barbecue, if they’re playing a game, he is going to score a goal.”
“These type of guys, like [Lionel] Messi, like him…”, said Pep, pausing, unable to think of another player of the same calibre before continuing: “what they have done, or what Ronaldo has done in the last decade in world football, scoring goals and helping his teams to win.It speaks for itself.”
