Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo turns 35 today, but his physical parameters show 28, according to Tuttosport. “I can play until I’m 40”.
The Portuguese superstar has been vital for Juventus this campaign and is currently on a run of nine consecutive games with a goal.
The brace against Fiorentina last weekend took him to 19 in 19 Serie A matches this term and Tuttosport reveals that his physical parameters are showing no sign of his actual age.
The 35-year-old previously claimed that he would only stop if he lacked “motivation” and that it would not be down to his “physique”.
“Much will depend on how I fell,” he told Marca. “On my motivation. Because it will never be a problem physically.
“I am treating myself well and I think I can play safely up to 40. The most important factor, honestly, will be psychological.
“That’s what will make the difference. In any case, everything has a beginning and an end, so I won’t last a lifetime, logically enough. But I still feel strong enough to continue winning important titles.”
Juventus are currently first in Serie A, three points above Inter at second, but Lazio could leapfrog the Nerazzurri tonight and cut the gap to two points between the Old Lady and the Biancoceleste.
