- Real Madrid
Yup, he's still really good and would be interesting to see him in the premier league again as he's not the same player he was before. He's a very committed professional that makes everything possible to keep himself in top form but being in his mid 30s he can't really recover as fast as someone in their early 20s so he's at a stage where, ideally, he shouldn't be playing every game.I swear people are going on like he is 50 years of age and plays like he is 90 years
A 36yo Ronaldo is like a 25 yo Rooney he will easily be scoring for fun at 40.
He has looked after himself all his career to keep playing at the highest level is totally dedicated and a born winner yet people think he should be a back up should Martial look tired with ten minutes to go
I say this because at Real Madrid he would usually be quite fatigued at the end of the season and that hurt the team performances on UCL, cups and league towards the end when the pressure is at it's peak. Then he started to take longer preseason time to recover his fitness and he wasn't playing as many games and that when he took his performances in the UCL to another level and was finishing the seasons in quite good condition.
