Ronaldo Eyes Acting After Retirement From Football

Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has set his sights on the film industry when he retires from football.
The Portugal captain admitted that he would like to try his hand at acting when he eventually hangs up his boots, and he could follow in the footsteps of former Manchester United star, Eric Cantona, who went on to enjoy a career in acting after his retirement.
The 34-year-old is no stranger to limelight, having balanced his football career alongside advertisements and commercial responsibilities, as well as featuring as a model in a number of photoshoots.
Speaking at a Dubai Sports Conference, he said:
“When I quit football I would like to resume my studies. I focus a lot on studying, on learning, because unfortunately the studies I have done can’t give answer all the questions I have in mind.
“One thing that fascinates me is to want to try acting in a film.”
However, Ronaldo insisted that he has no plans to retire yet, and promised to listen to his body when it decides that it is time to call it a day.
“I have never had a bad season in my life, since I am always ready to face challenges.
“I always play with the intention of winning. The moment my body no longer responds in the right way on the pitch, then it will be time for me to stop.
“Many years ago the ideal age to retire was 30 or 32, now you still see players aged 40,” he added.
Ronaldo has been nominated for Best Men’s Player at the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards, which he won in January, and will go up against Lionel Messi and Liverpool duo of Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah.
Ex-United forward, Romelu Lukaku, and Atletico Madrid starlet Joao Felix, were also present at the event as guest speakers.
