3. ‘The Best days are still ahead of me’- Ronaldo says as he turns 33
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo turned 33 years last week on February 5th but he says the best is ahead of him. The Portuguese has lifted five Ballon d’Or awards, four UEFA Champions League crowns, and League titles among other trophies in his career. He won everything at Manchester United in six successful years before switching to Madrid in 2009. He says he can play at the highest level for years to come.
“On a personal level, this is a fantastic time for me. I have a growing family and I am very happy with my life.
“On a professional level, I have had two very good years in which I have won titles with my club and with my national team. I feel that I can keep going at the highest level for years to come.”
“Life is a challenge from all perspectives and I try to be at my peak, physically, because this is very important in my profession,” he said. “I have to be at 100 percent and I take this very seriously.
“To maintain this level, you need to make sacrifices. There are certain things that I could do when I was 20 that I can’t do today. You have to try and find a balance. It’s the finer details that make a difference.
“I am ambitious, very ambitious. People should chase their dreams. I chased mine and I want to keep doing so, to improve and achieve even more goals. I believe I’ve had some memorable performances throughout my career but can’t recall any in particular. I try to focus myself more on the present than on the past.”
