- Cristiano Ronaldo says he will quit football when his body betrays him
- The Juventus star also believes he can take up challenges in acting after football
- With five Ballon d'Or gongs, the Portuguese is considered as one of the biggest names in football
Cristiano Ronaldo has hinted at possible retirement from football with the Juventus star plotting next career move on entrepreneurship and acting.
The Portuguese star is considered as one of the biggest names to ever play football having experienced a stellar rise from a young prospect in Lisbon to a global mega star.
Ronaldo started his career in his home country Portugal before sealing a move to Manchester United where he gained prominence that now cements him as football posterboy.
With successful stints spanning two decades across European top flights including Real Madrid, the Juve star has won five Ballon d'Or gongs among numerous individual honours.
The 34-year-old has also won a host of major trophies, including five European Cups and six league titles, while also landing a European Championships winners' medal with Portugal in 2018.
Ronaldo has now given hints on the possibility of dropping the curtain on his glistering career, saying that will happen when "the moment my body is no longer responding in the right way."
“The moment my body is no longer responding in the right way on the field, then it would be the time to leave,'' the Juventus star said.
"My success in my field is the result of hard work, and a way of living. I work continuously to improve my mental and physical abilities. I aspire to continue my studies after retiring from football.
"I hope I live more than 50 years to learn new things and face different challenges and try to find solutions for them. One of the things that I seek to challenge myself in, for example, is acting in a movie," the Portuguese star further explained.
Ronaldo also opened the lids on his training style, saying he maintains diets that make him feel comfortable as a player.
“I know my body 100 per cent, and I always maintain a diet that brings me the physique that makes me different.
"Everyone knows my way of living, and my life is devoted to football," the Juventus star said.
