Real Madrid star forward, Cristiano Ronaldo is one player whose future outside the game has been the object of much speculation.
The 31-year-old even went as far as to state that he would not be getting into coaching or football management when he eventually retires from the game that has brought him immense fame fortune, maintaining that he would like his break from the game to be total.
However, the Portuguese international has given a hint into what he would most likely be doing after hanging his boots.
In an interview with Portuguese fashion magazine, Sacoor Brothers Ronaldo said he would like to go into acting.
Recall that the prolific forward recently starred in a documentary movie named after himself.
He said: “I would like to learn being surrounded by good actors because only then will I learn since it is an area I do not control because it has nothing to do with football.
“Why not? It’s not my goal at the moment, but I have had some invitations.
“Do not close the doors because it is an area which I like.”
But he said he still has much more to offer to the beautiful game on the pitch, declaring “I feel good, I feel young, so I want to continue.”
Other footballers who have also gone into acting after their retirement include Manchester United legend, Eric Cantona, who has acted in many movies, and former Wimbledon FC defender, Vinnie Jones.
