“Who will decide my future will be me,” said a visibly angry Cristiano Ronaldo during a press conference for Portugal, as quoted by The Independent.
He was asked by reporters about possibly retiring after the World Cup this year and Ronaldo added: “If I feel like playing more, I will. I’m the boss, end of story.”
The Manchester United forward, 37, could play his final World Cup this year after booking a spot in the tournament in Qatar with Portugal as they beat North Macedonia 2-0 in their play-off final on Tuesday night.
With the win it means the Former Real Madrid and Juventus superstar is to play in the World Cup for one last time and could make all the difference for his nation.
The world-record holder for most international goals (115) will once again hope to add to his tally once the tournament kicks off later this year in Qatar.
