 In a long interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Ronaldo revealed he has no plans of going into football management or coaching and would love to live like a king after the game.

Ronaldo can start thinking of retirement as he will be 31 in February. The legendary winger already has a clothing line, a perfume line and other businesses he handles.

He said: “There is another life after football. 

“I think at first it will be tough, but if you ask me now if I want to coach, I would say no. Neither as a club manager nor a president. You can say you have the best job, money, cars, houses… but that is not everything.

“One example: On Saturday there’s boxing on in Las Vegas and I would like to take my family and friends, but I can’t because I have no time.

“But after (football) I want to live like a king. I’ve become the person I am today because of the time I spent without my family and going through difficult times.

“I was a teenager, but I had to do things as a man – to the point that I had to do my own ironing. My mental strength began at that time.”


He added: “I have a top life, but I think I am going to enjoy it more when I finish my career, when I have time to do what I like. I am not going to cry about it now because I am making a sacrifice in inverted commas, but after I want to live like a king

“If you ask me now if I want to be a coach, I would say no. Nor a sporting director or president of a club. 

“Since I was 27 I have had my own line of clothes and I want my brand to keep growing because football will finish in five, six, seven or 10 years.”

“Many people say they don’t regret anything. That is a lie. I at least regret things a lot, but that also explains the kind of person you are.

“I am like this. If all I have achieved in football is by being like this then you can’t ask me to change. If people ask me to improve, I accept it, but to change is very difficult.”

Ronaldo’s future in Madrid is uncertain. The winger has always spoken of his desire to return to Manchester United at some point while his agent Jorge Mendez says his client will retire at Real Madrid.

The attacker has also been linked to French giants PSG.
