Cristiano Ronaldo may be basking in a fifth Ballon d’Or triumph, but he still has one eye on his post-football career.
The 32-year-old has revealed he wants to move into the movie business when he hangs up his boots, following in the footsteps of Pele, Eric Cantona and, erm, Vinnie Jones.
Ronaldo still has three years left on his Real Madrid contract, but has previously hinted that he could play beyond his 40th birthday.
“I am focused right now because my football career will finish one day – we all have to retire one day,” Ronaldo told Sky Italia.
“I know that day will come. But right now, I am enjoying the moment. When I am retired, I think I will have a good life. I don’t say that because of money.
“I want to try other things; for example, to do movies. I started to plan my future when I was 27, 28 – a long time ago, I began preparing.
“I have a good team, who work in my company, who start to build good things going forward. In football, I am very calm because I know they depend on me.”
