Reports are out claiming that Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo admits retirement is now in his thoughts.
Ronaldo was speaking with Caras.
The former Manchester United star says he will retire from professional football “in four or five years’ time”, and plans to live “like a king” with his friends and family as soon as that day comes.
The forward admitted that football “is a huge part” of his life which is why he gives “100% all the time”, although he still gets nervous when it comes to taking spot kicks.
In terms of booing and negative receptions from opposition supporters, Ronaldo stated that he is not bothered that he is hated because that hatred “is another source of motivation” which is “part of a footballer’s job”.
