Age is just a number, Ronaldo not ready to retire

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has told the club's supporters he is not ready for retirement yet.

Ronaldo, 34 has reassured Juventus fans and his supporters worldwide that age is just a number. The Portuguese was addressing the media ahead of Juve's Champions League match against Lokomotiv Moscow on Tuesday. 

"Age is just a number. It does not mean that at 34, 35, 36, you are at the end of your career," he said.

"I can show that with my performances, how I play, the way I play, the way I still feel good, sharp, thinking about the game, more mature. This makes the difference."

Ronaldo, who signed a four-year contract at Juventus is in his second season sparked concerns to his fans after he revealed in an interview that he was starting to enjoy seeing himself 'outside of football, so who knows what will happen in the next year or two?'


"We want to win Serie A, we want to win the Cup, the Champions League. Juventus should think big... We are going to try to win all the trophies, we know it will be difficult, especially the league and the Champions League, but I think it is possible. Everything is possible."

"In terms of individual [honours], I have nothing to say as this is individual. It is not the most important thing," Ronaldo added. "The most important is the collective awards. If you win the collective awards, you have more chance to win the individual awards... The Ballon d'Or is for me in second place."
