Portuguese superstar,Cristiano Ronaldo colleagues at Manchester United and the ex-Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, has said that he doesn’t see Juventus player Ronaldo resigning from the sport of football until he has outperformed Pele’s goalscoring record since he needs to be named the best footballer ever.
Gary Neville,says Ronaldo’s obsession with perfection might see him play until his 40s.
The Brazilian Legend Pele scored an aggregate of 1281 goals in 1363 games, a Guiness Book record, while Ronaldo has scored more than 700 goals inciting Neville to state outperforming Pele is Ronaldo’s main target.
Neville told SkySports: “He simply needed to be the best on the earth and it’s so imperative to him,
“It’s a obsession. Outright obsession on scoring goals. Putting forth a concentrated effort each and every day, being the fittest he can be. I think he’s lifted his professionalism every single year and progressed.
“That is the place I believe he’s at in his psyche, he needs to be the best ever, that is his sole reason, understanding that en route on the off chance that he is the best ever, the teams that he plays for will win trophies and be successful.”
“Jamie (Carragher) mentioned before about James Milner wanting to play into his late 30s and 40s. I think he [Ronaldo] has a plan to go on and take over Pele’s record. “I genuinely believe he wants to go on and beat Pele’s numbers.
