Ronaldo reveals he misses playing in Premier League but wants to stay at Real Madrid until he’s 40

Date Posted,May 31, 2017

Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he misses playing in the Premier League – but won’t return as he wants to stay at Real Madrid until he is 40.

Real megastar Ronaldo spent six seasons at Manchester United – where he turned himself into a legend after netting 118 goals in 292 games.

Ronaldo has been whistled by Real fans this season and admits he hates the feeling that gives him, before unleashing his love on the English game.

Ronaldo, who is taking on Juventus in the Champions League final on Saturday, told Spanish TV channel La Sexta: “I don’t like it and it’s not normal that they whistle you in your own stadium. I just don’t like it.

“It shouldn’t be the case that a player who always wants to give his best and give 100 percent for this team when he makes his first mistake people whistle.

“It’s not correct. And when you are on a difficult run that is when you need extra support from outside not less. Sometimes we don’t have it.

“I spent a lot of years at Manchester United and it never happened to me. Not even once. Maybe England is a case apart – the mentality is different.

“I’m very happy being in Spain but obviously I also miss England because you can’t just turn off the memories.”

Ronaldo turns 33 during next season but insists he can still go for at least another seven years – if not longer.

The Portugal international signed a new five-year deal last November, which will see him star aged 36, but is already eying up a five year top up when that one expires in 2021.

Ronald said: “Forty-one! I said when I signed my latest contract that it would be my penultimate and that I would play on until I was 41.”
