An era in football might be coming to an end soon.
Speaking at a Press Conference ahead of the France vs Portugal match from the UEFA Nations League, Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed his plans for the future, in what is definitely a piece of upsetting news for his fans.
When asked about what his plans are, the 5-time Ballon D’Or Winner has in fact revealed and announced that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be his last competitive tournament.
If Portugal qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which they are likely to, CR7 will be 37 years old.
Given his unbelievable fitness regime, which he follows religiously, many fans expect him to continue donning the national team jersey into his 40s. However, Cristiano Ronaldo might have given the world a harsh reminder that all good things, sooner or later, have to come to an end.
The Portuguese’s reply must have broken a lot of hearts around the world. Cristiano Ronaldo seemed to hint that he was not thinking of retirement any time soon, stating that he was still fit to continue.
