CR7: I’d Only Play Important Matches If I Could

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that he would only play the big games if it were up to him.

The 34-year-old has long been recognised as one of the finest players in the world, winning five Ballons d’Or, and one of his defining characteristics has been his ability to shine when it has mattered most.

He has scored four times in Champions League finals, one for Manchester United and three for Real Madrid, while he has continued that track record since signing for Juventus in 2018, grabbing a thrilling hat-trick to allow them to fight back against Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals.

“I’ll tell you, if it were up to me, I would only play some important games,” he told France Football. “Those of the national team and the Champions League.

“It’s these kinds of games that emerge, those with a stake, a difficult atmosphere, a pressure.

“After, you have to be pro and perform well every day to honour your family and the club you represent and who pays you for it.

“So, always give the best.” Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
