Cristiano Ronaldo's mother Dolores Aveiro has insisted that her son has no plans of hanging his boots before he turns 40.
The 36-year-old returned to the highly competitive Premier League from Juventus during the summer transfer window last month and he has already raised the bar.
He has found the back of the net four times in three appearances across competitions since he made his debut against Newcastle United after the international break.
The former Real Madrid forward is also in contention for the Premier League golden boot this term having scored three goals so far - just one behind joint leaders Michail Antonio, Bruno Fernandes, and Mohamed Salah.

What Cristiano Ronaldo's mother said
And the mother of four was quoted by SunSport speaking with presenter and comedian Guilherme Geirinhas, saying:
“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.”
Although what he wants to do after retiring from football is absolutely unclear, he, however, told his mother that he will enjoy life.
Ronaldo already has a fleet of businesses, hence, even if he chooses not to do anything, he will continue to remain relevant.
