Star athlete Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the biggest names in the football world who, even at the age of 39, puts across neat performances on the field, proving why he is the greatest of all time, Bolavip reported.

With 33 goals in the Saudi Pro League, CR7 is just one goal away from setting a single season record.

In addition, the Al Nassr star will also be seen playing for Portugal in the UEFA Champions League in Germany.

During an interview on Whoop podcast, the legendary player shared insights on his retirement plans, which has remained a hot topic amongst his football fans.

He said: "I feel proud to be this age and still compete at the highest level. It's great, and it gives me motivation to carry on."

Further adding, he said: "My biggest motivation is to carry on. It’s not easy to be at this level. To still push, to still motivate, to carry on, to score goals, to be in good shape, to compete with the young lions that are coming and that when they play against me, they want to show me that they are stronger and faster than me."

The Portuguese player has scored 891 goals in his almost 20-year career and is only 9 goals short of entering the 1000-goal club.
