EPL: Man United must finish in top three, says Ronaldo

Manchester United striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, has said he feels like he’s 30 years old, just as he stated that he might continue playing football up to his 40s.

He said with the attention he gives to his body, playing at a high level and putting in good performance is possible.

The 36-year-old Portugues international, however, stated that the challenge he’s facing is mental.

“I feel happy to be a player who has shown who, in my case, longevity has been a crucial factor for me to keep playing at a high level, putting in good performances,” he told ESPN.

“Genetically, I feel like I’m 30 years old. I take great care of my body and my mind. Something I’ve learned recently is that, after 33, I believe the body can deliver if you need it but the real battle is mental.

“Going through many things with the focus on the end-goal of staying at a high level is the hardest thing and that’s what I’ve been doing for the last few years.

“I’ve been working and focusing more on working on my mind. I know my body will handle me because I have a lot of respect for it and I listen to it a lot.

“Life has to have important moments, for better or for worse, but, when you fall, you must have the strength to get up. I’m happy, I want to stay here and see what will happen.

“I want to find out if I’m going to play until I’m 40, 41, or 42, but the most important thing is that my daily goal is to enjoy the moment.”
