Ronaldo Wants To Emulate Maradona and Pele

Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the best footballer of our time and has almost won everything possible in his career.

The Portuguese has won the Champions League as well as the Copa del Rey this season and the FIFA Ballon d’Or on personal level.

However, to secure his place in the history books, he wants to emulate Diego Maradona and Pele, who both have won the World Cup.

“I hope one day to be on the first page of the history of football, on the same page as Maradona and Pele. I want to get there,” he is quoted by the Sun.

The 29-year-old has been struggling with muscular fatigue in the final stages of the season, but says he feels fit enough to play until he is 40.

"I love football. It’s my life," he added.

"Without football, I don’t know what to do. I have seven or eight years left. Maybe more. If my legs allow me to play until 40, I want to play.”

Ronaldo is Portugal’s all-time record goal-scorer and captains his country. He almost singlehandedly kicked his country to Brazil by scoring four goals against Sweden in the World Cup playoff.

Portugal have been drawn in Group G with Germany, Ghana and the USA.

Cristiano Ronaldo later tweeted that he never gave these quotes to the Sun.

"Today, the Sun publishes an interview with me that I never gave. So it's content is pure fiction.
