- Ryan Giggs announced his retirement from football at age 40 in 2014
- The Manchester United most decorated player says Cristiano Ronaldo will play up to that age
- Ronaldo has continued to score goals, shatter records and set new statistics
Ryan Giggs and Cristiano Ronaldo won one Champions League, three Premier League titles, and several domestic titles together at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson before the Portuguese sensation moved to Spain joining Real Madrid in 2009 for a then-world record transfer fee of £80million.
Giggs who retired in his early forties has made a stunning revelation that the Juventus striker will follow his step and play until he is 40.
Ronaldo reached another landmark on Tuesday night, September 8, to score 101 international goals with his brace against Sweden in the UEFA Nations League.
Ronaldo who turned 35 has shown he is not ready to hang his boots and just last season he scored 31 Serie A goals to finish second despite his age.
Giggs who is Manchester United’s most decorated player retired at the age of 40 in 2014 now feels his ex-team-mate will do the same.
"He'll have to be at the right club obviously. I was at a top club and played until I was 40, and I can see him going on and playing until he's 40 as well," Giggs told PA cited in Mirror.
"He looks after himself - he eats right, rests right and lives for the game - and is the best professional I ever played with."
