Cristiano Ronaldo after winning Golden Shoe: Working to be “the best ever”, planning long Madrid stay


After accepting the European Golden Shoe Award, Cristiano Ronaldo announced his plans to keep his golden feet at Real Madrid through at least 2018.

Despite constantly being linked with a return to Manchester United, the Portuguese superstar says he plans to honor his current contract before seeing if Real would like him to stick around.

Ronaldo, 29, was speaking after the awards ceremony held to honor his 31 La Liga goals last season, and said he feels “young and still a long way off retiring.”

Now he’s setting his sights on being the best player of all-time.

From the BBC:

A three-time winner of the Golden Shoe and two-time winner of the Ballon d’Or, Ronaldo says he wants to become the best footballer in history.

“Being the best in Portugal isn’t enough for me, I’m going to work to be the best ever,” he said.

“I don’t have to prove anything to anyone, just to myself. I want to continue working in the same way because it’s harder and harder to improve my figures.

“I want to be the best at the best club in the world.”

It’s not impossible, that’s for sure. Ronaldo continues to thrive at Real Madrid after earning his star at Old Trafford. The sky really does feel the limit for Ronaldo, and apparently Spain is the location.
