Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum Dolores claims Man Utd star will play until he’s FORTY and has made his mind up on management | The SunJuly 28, 2022
CRISTIANO RONALDO will continue playing until he is 40 – and then his mum says he will enjoy life instead of becoming a manager.
Diehard Sporting Lisbon fan Dolores Aveiro, 67, has made a number of revelations about her legendary son in recent times.
She previously admitted she dreamed of seeing the Manchester United striker return to the club he began his iconic career at.
As well as discussing the life-threatening stroke she suffered in 2020, the star’s mother also appeared to rubbish reports she did not see eye-to-eye with his partner Georgina Rodriguez.
The footy-mad mum has also declared that fans will get to see her 37-year-old superstar golden boy in action for another three years.
However, despite his memorable antics in the dug-out after coming off injured in the Euro 2016 final for Portugal, he appears to have no desire to step into management once he finally hangs up his boots.

The Madeira-based mum-of-four told presenter and comedian Guilherme Geirinhas: “I’ve already asked him if he wants to be a coach when he stops playing.
“He told me he wants to enjoy life. He’ll play until he’s 40.”
Dolores also discussed his relationship with Buenos Aires-born Georgina, 28.
She worked as an au pair in the UK before meeting and falling in love with her father-of-five footballer boyfriend after getting a job at a Madrid clothes store.

Appearing to rubbish reports that she doesn’t always see eye-to-eye with the stunning brunette, Dolores said: “Yes, yes, she’s a good girl. Cristiano is an exemplary father but he has people to help.
“The children have nannies and they have staff who do a lot of things. Four kids are a lot of work. Georgina is a great support to Cristiano, no doubt about it.”
She also admitted on Sporting Lisbon podcast ADN de Leao she had yet to make a full recovery from the stroke she suffered in March 2020 at her home in the Madeiran capital Funchal after a battle with breast cancer.
Dolores was rushed to hospital for a life-saving op following the stroke, with her son jetting to see her from his then-home in Italy when he learned the news.
Dolores, who lives at a seven-storey apartment block overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Funchal which Cristiano purchased in 2019, revealed: “I don't move my arm well, and as for speech, I stutter a lot. I notice my tongue sticking.
“I lost my sense of smell and taste. I can’t smell anything or taste it. Little by little I will recover, God willing.”
But in her bare-it-all interview she also insisted: “I adore football. If you invite me to dinner and there’s a match on, I won’t go to eat and and I’ll stay in and watch the game instead.
“Even if Ronaldo’s not playing, I’m always watching.”
