Cristiano Ronaldo is now the top goal scorer in international men’s football. The Portuguese international is thirty-six years old, this has no impact on his performance on the football pitch.
At this age, so many players would have retired from the game but the Portuguese International Cristiano Ronaldo keeps giving footballers all over the globe breathtaking performances.
He is still a sought after player by Top European clubs, just days ago Manchester United re-signed him.
What intrigued me the most about this Greatest Of All Time footballer is the desire, hunger to win more trophies despite all he has achieved in the game. It is something that is what emulating.
The Greatest Of All Time Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 111 international goals surpassing every other player that has played the game. Knowing who he is, more and more goals are still coming.
I can still remember vividly when he was still younger playing in Sporting CP, hIs trickery with the ball caught my attention. Especially the step over skills so quick that defenders find it difficult to mark him.
Sir Alex Ferguson saw this potential and quickly signed him to Manchester United in 2003.
When he was playing in Sporting CP his teammates gave him the nickname “Noodle” because of his slim physique, he was unhappy with the nickname and guess what he did?
He set out to build for his own weight sessions so as to build his muscle. He has always had it in him to be the best. He does not settle for less.
