There was once a time in the beautiful game of football, that once you hit the age of 30, things began to go down hill and you had to start thinking about retirement and what you were going to do once your playing days were over. However, these days it seems that there are actually a lot of players who come into their own as they hit 30 and can enjoy some of the best years of their career.
Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is 31 years old now and he is still considered arguably the greatest player in the game today, and up there with the best players to ever play. Meanwhile, Cristiano has just enjoyed the biggest success of his career, as he led Portugal to the Euro 2016 crown, which is up there with the biggest achievements of his whole career.
While Cristiano Ronaldo was taken off after less than 25 minutes of the Euro 2016 final, he still managed to inspire the team to victory with a passionate display from the touchline. With Ronaldo getting ever close to having to start thinking about retirement, it seems that he has already found his calling as a coach and we are sure that he would become a great one too.
With that said though, Cristiano Ronaldo still has a few more years left playing at the very top yet, and some people have suggested that his ego would not be fitting for a coaching role. Try telling that to Jose Mourinho!
