How long can Ronaldo keep playing for?
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes forward Cristiano Ronaldo could continue playing at the top level well into his forties, as he addressed the media ahead of Saturday lunchtime's game against Aston Villa at Old Trafford.
With the Reds' attention now turning back to the Premier League, hoping to extend the current unbeaten run in the 2021/22 division to six games, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Cristiano’s impressive start to the campaign, insisting that United’s no.7 is still performing to the best of his abilities, even at the age of 36.
‘’The way he looks after himself, that’s the key, that’s the key to it all and, of course, some genes. There must be some genes in there! He has put every single ounce of energy and effort into becoming the player he is,’’ added the Norwegian.
‘’He deserves every single plaudit that he gets for first, his own physical state but, even more impressively, when you have achieved as much as he has. He is still just as hungry as ever.
