Russian wrestler Khabib Nurmagomedov advised Cristiano Ronaldo - with whom he shares a good friendship - to seriously choose the moment of his withdrawal
The Russian fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, champion of light weight of UFC, spoke on Cristiano Ronaldo -with the one who keeps a good relation- in some statements to Russia Today collected by the newspaper Sport. Surprisingly, the Russian does not seem to be very in accordance with the idea that has the Portuguese to follow playing until the 40 years of age.
When they asked him about said possibility, Khabib did not seem to be too convinced, since the step of the time is harmful for any sportsman. "Well, already you know, it is difficult to leave something that have done all your life. But it does not matter if it wishes to withdraw or no, it will arrive a moment in that if it does not abandon the sport, the sport will abandon it", ensured.
"It has to withdraw in the suitable moment, before somebody take his place"
In fact, the Russian thinks that would have to withdraw before the foreseen to avoid that the new generations eat him the terrain. "If it does not go in the suitable moment, will remain backwards, because there will be new champions, boys younger, more hambrientos and more motivated. And at the end of his career will not have the same motivations and the same hunger that had when it began", said.
The Russian fighter warned to his fellow that, in spite of that now the physicist answers him, will arrive a moment in which it will leave it to do. "Anybody keeps in the peak for ever, by what is important to withdraw in the suitable moment. Now the physicist works. But prompt, who knows. How many years has Christian? 34?", it asked.
To conclude, advised him to Cristiano Ronaldo that it was accurate with the moment of his withdrawal. "To the 35 will not have the same times of reaction and the same fitness. And it does not matter if you are Christian Ronaldo or Khabib, somebody will come to take your place. My council for him, that also applies to me, is to withdraw in the suitable moment", sentenced.
Cristiano Ronaldo does not lose the ambition
In spite of the message of Khabib, does not seem that Cristiano Ronaldo have the intention to withdraw in the short term. The Portuguese forward carries little more than a year in the Juventus of Turín and, recently surpassed by Leo Messi in the number of Balloons of Gold, sure that finds motivation to go back to equalise to the Argentinian star, that neither has foreseen to withdraw in brief.
