Portugal and Juventus talismanic striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been counting his accomplishments as a 35 year old footballer and hints that he has been overwhelmed by them as he didn’t anticipate so much when he took to the sport.
Ronaldo turned 35 on Wednesday, February 5, 2020, and he sensationally told Canal 11 in a short interview that he didn’t dream of accomplishing much when he decided to become a professional footballer. He had thought that at the age of 35, he could be a fisherman in his native home, Funchal in Madeira, Portugal.

And at Juventus, he is looking to win another Champions League title after winning the Serie A title.
With Portugal Ronaldo has won the European Championship and European Nations League titles. And his trophy cabinet is awash with many individual awards earned from international and club football..
“At 35? I Thought I Was Going To Be A Fisherman In Madeira,” Ronaldo told Canal 11.
“This never came into my mind. I wanted to be a professional footballer, but l didn’t think
I was going to win everything I’ve won.”
On the Champions League title hunt with Juventus, he said: “To play at Juventus gives me the chance to win it again.”
“We know it’s difficult, it depends on many factors, but it’s possible because we have a good team.
“We must take one step at a time going forward.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
