I have no doubt that Cristiano wants to play by the age of 40 and that his plan is to knock Pele’s record by the number of goals.”
“He wants to be the greatest of all time and that’s his mission. That’s why his clubs must be destined for success and must win trophies,” added former Ronald teammate from Manchester United.
