Cristiano Ronaldo responds to retirement rumours after ‘outside of football’ claim


 Cristiano Ronaldo has brushed aside claims that he is set for retirement.   The Juventus forward hinted in an interview last week that he was enjoying like “outside of football” and said that he did not know where his future would lie in the next couple of years  While the notion could remain the same, Ronaldo has hinted that he could continue towards his fourties  The 34-year-old, who was nominated for the Ballon d’Or once again earlier this week, says that the end of his career will not be defined by his age  “Age is just a number,” Ronaldo said ahead of Juve’s Champions League clash with Lokomotiv Moscow this week  It does not mean that at 34, 35, 36, you are at the end of your career. Ronaldo said ahead of Juve’s Champions League clash with Lokomotiv Moscow this week  ”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 remains in superb shape and has two-and-a-half years left on his contract at Juventus  He recently scored his 700th goal as a professional footballer and is continuing to try and break records  But he insists that individual targets are taking a backseat this season – and he is instead hoping to win a historic treble with Juventus  “We want to win Serie A, we want to win the Cup, the Champions League,” he said  “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.  “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.  “To win games, to score goals, to enjoy myself, to arrive home and see my kids happy and say, ‘Congratulations daddy for scoring a goal ‘ That makes me happy.  “This is my motivation to come to train, for the games, to entertain people and the fans with my passion ”
