Cristiano Ronaldo Wants To Play Till 2024 Euro Cup

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner says his journey is not over yet

Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo has set his sights on playing in Euro 2024. The star striker will be 39 years in 2024. However, he said he has no plans to retire soon. 

Ronaldo spoke about his future after receiving a trophy at the Portuguese Football Federation’s Quinas de Ouro awards in Lisbon. “I want to be part of the World Cup and the Euros. I feel very motivated. My ambition is great. My journey is not over yet. You’re going to have to put up with Cris for a while longer,” said CR7. 

Cristiano Ronaldo and his international career

Ronaldo appeared in 189 games for Portugal. He has scored 117 goals. The superstar is the world’s leading goal scorer in international football. A modern legend, Rono will play his 10th major international tournament for the country in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. 

However, he faced backlash in Manchester United this summer. There was speculation he would switch clubs after being benched for EPL matches. He scored in Manchester United’s last game against FC Sheriff in the Europa League. Meanwhile, there are reports that the 37-year-old may be sold by his club. This move is likely to happen during the January transfer window season. 

Why Rono wants to exit Manchester

The former UEFA Champions League winner wants to play in the league. However, his club Manchester has not qualified for the last two seasons. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was sidelined by the English club as he tried to approach new clubs in April. Ronaldo is frustrated because his favourite club has disappointed him.

A modern-day legend, Ronaldo is the rival partner of star forward Lionel Messi, an Argentine great. The duo share great admiration and have been great sources of inspiration to each other. Ronaldo won the Euro 2016 for the Portugal team. Previously, he said the 2022 World Cup in Qatar would be his last.
