Cristiano Ronaldo is still a very high level player, despite his 36 years: according to him, the recipe is simple, and he reveals it in an interview for ESPN Brazil.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a little tough at Manchester United, but it’s mainly because of the level of his teammates. At 36, CR7 is still on top (according to him) and confides his secrets in this interview for ESPN in Brazil.
“Genetically, I feel like I’m 30. I take great care of my body and my mind. It’s something I’ve learned over the past few years: after 33 years, the body still respects what you ask of it when you need it, but the hardest battle is mental. It takes a lot to stay at the top level. It is the most difficult. I focus on the mind, because I know that my body will hold, because I respect it a lot and I give it a lot of attention, “he said.
“I’m happy, I want to continue here, see what it will give. Getting to 40, 41, 42… The most important thing is to enjoy the moment,” he says.
But he specifies that this longevity, all football players will not be able to achieve it. “It’s not given to everyone, it’s the result of many hours of work, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly to continue to be competitive with 20-year-old kids. I’m proud of that and I want to continue.”
