Ronaldo’s agreement in Turin actually has year and a half left to run and he doesn’t accept retirement is unavoidable, saying: “If you feel motivated, it doesn’t matter.
“Cristiano now is good. I feel in a great moment, but I don’t know tomorrow what’s going to happen. I live the present, the moment. Moment is good, I feel happy.
“I feel still good, sharp and in a good moment in my life. I hope to play many, many years more, but you never know. This is football, we don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow.
“When I speak with the young boys, I’m always giving advice to them. I say: “Enjoy the moment, because you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow. Something can happen in your life with your family. Enjoy the moment.
“My eyes see the future very, very bright, so I’m happy with that.”
Ronaldo sure of more Euro achievement; World Cup a ‘dream’
One reason Ronaldo accepts his future is set to be “very bright” is that he and his Portugal partners are “very positive” of holding their title at this present season’s Euros.
Ronaldo was a vital piece of the side that won Euro 2016 – Portugal’s first significant prize – and scored a cap stunt in the semi-last as they won the debut Nations League in 2019.
What’s more, the previous Manchester United forward is sure Euro 2020 – adjusted for the late spring of 2021 due to Covid – can see Portugal win their third significant prize in five years.
He said: “It will be tough, but we are a good team, a young team. We have a fantastic coach [Fernando Santos], so we’re very, very, very positive on that.
“We don’t know what’s going to happen – we have to think about our group – but I think we’ll be good. Our team is better, we improved a lot, the young kids is becoming even better, so I’m very confident.”
In any case, Ronaldo demands he isn’t happy with what he has just won with Portugal and has directed his concentration toward the lone significant worldwide prize he is yet to win – the World Cup.
The following cycle of the competition will happen in Qatar in the colder time of year of 2022 – so, all things considered Ronaldo will be almost 38 – and he is longing for driving his nation to yet more magnificence.
“We won 2016 and now we want to win the World Cup,” said Ronaldo. “It’s possible, yes, it’s possible. Everything is possible.
“But you have to be realistic as well. As I told you many, many times, my dream is to win something for Portugal national team and I won two titles, which is making me feel happy.
“I win [with] every club that I played with, but World Cup… it’s a dream. It’s a dream.”
