Mourinho worked with Ronaldo at Real between 2010 and 2013 during a period where the Portuguese forward averaged more than 50 goals a season and the club won three titles, including the Spanish Super Cup, Copa Del Rey and LaLiga crown.

"At 34, he is a top player, who plays in a top team and has top ambitions. It does not surprise me because he is a case study in genetic terms, and mentality as well.

“He is a phenomenon, someone who only thinks about winning and doing it more and more and better. That is why I am not surprised at all what he does.

“When he is 50 years old he will be at home and FIFA will invite him to a game of legends. He will play the game and score a goal. I am sure it will be like that.
