After the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Cristiano Ronaldo decided to sign for Al Nassr and his first full year in Saudi Arabia was spectacular. The Portuguese finished 2023 as the world’s top scorer with 54 goals, surpassing the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane and Erling Haaland.
Right now, Al Nassr has already qualified for the round of 16 in the AFC Champions League and is second in the Saudi Pro League behind Al Hilal.
Of course, the last few months have been very surprising for millions of football fans, as two veterans like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have continued to dominate. With rising young stars, no one expected it.
However, with age as a key factor, the issue of retirement is inevitable. At least for now, Cristiano wanted to reassure his fans with a message full of optimism.
Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed that he is not ready to retire
Cristiano Ronaldo scored another goal in Al Nassr’s 4-1 win over Al Taawon in the Saudi Pro League this Saturday. Therefore, as the best shooter in the world, the legend had a special message about his future.
The Portuguese took to his Instagram account and posted many photos from the game, including one of him celebrating his last goal of 2023. “I’ll tell when it’s done! Thanks, team.”
Cristiano Ronaldo is 38 years old, but this statement confirms that retirement is not at all possible. In 2024, CR7 will have a big challenge with Portugal looking to win the UEFA Euro. A trophy with great individual performances in Germany could make him a surprise Ballon d’Or contender.
