Cristiano Ronaldo turns 35 in a couple of weeks – but the Portuguese forward is still an absolute machine.
Few – if any – footballers in their mid-30s have ever been as fit and as good as Ronaldo is currently.
It’s often been said throughout his career that Ronaldo isn’t human, but someone really should go and check whether that theory is actually true.
Ronaldo has been in scintillating form of late and scored his 19th goal of the season for Juventus against AS Roma in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday night.
The veteran forward picked the ball up on the left-wing and showed that he hasn’t lost his pace before expertly finishing past Pau Lopez.
- Barcelona beat Ibiza – but only just
- Cristiano Ronaldo now fifth-highest scorer in history
- N’Golo Kante is now a meme after his slip
Watch Ronaldo’s latest goal here…
Again, this is a player who turns 35 next month. Outrageous.
Ronaldo now has seven goals in four appearances in 2020.
He has also scored 13 goals in his last 10 games in all competitions.
Football fans could be forgiven for thinking that Ronaldo already has his sights set on winning the 2020 Ballon d’Or after Lionel Messi won the prestigious individual accolade for a record-breaking sixth time last month.
You certainly wouldn’t put it past him.
Ronaldo has proved many times in the past that, for him, impossible is nothing.
