Cristiano Ronaldo, Diogo Dalot thinks, will continue to thrive on the grandest platform and smash records for both club and country.
The no.7 finished his first season back at Manchester United as the club’s top scorer with 24 goals in all competitions, only being outperformed in the Premier League by Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, and was named Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year.
Ronaldo scored twice in Portugal’s 4-0 win against Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League earlier this month, bringing his overall record for his nation to an amazing all-time high of 117.
As a result, even at the age of 37, the elite athlete shows no symptoms of slowing down.
“I believe the numbers speak for themselves,” says the author “In an exclusive conversation with us near the end of the season, Dalot revealed. “I prefer to refer to him as a machine. The way he works, the way he motivates himself every single day to perform like this, to give us these goals and performances, both on and off the pitch.
“I believe it’s a positive for the club and the fans, and hopefully we’ll be able to work with him for a long time.” I know he won’t be here indefinitely, but I’m certain he’ll continue to play football for a few more years.”
When asked if the center-forward is capable of continuing to play at the highest level for many years, his club and country teammate has no doubts.
“Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, “He said. “Easily. I’m sure he’ll do everything he can to play till he’s at his absolute maximum strength, but it’ll be up to him. “All we have to do now is appreciate him while he’s here.”
Dalot, who was an unused replacement in the win against the Swiss, will hope to play against the Czech Republic on Thursday as Portugal looks to extend its lead in Group A2.
