Rumors have circulated in recent months in Portugal thatCristiano Ronaldo
may be returning toSporting
to end his playing days at the club where he started his astonishing career.
In an interview with NOVO, Pepe was asked for his opinion on the possibility of Ronaldo’s return to Portugal.
“Honestly, given how I know him, I don’t know if he would tolerate the way many people talk about football in Portugal,”
“I think he’s happy in Turin, he’s the leading goalscorer in Serie A, those who criticize him don’t know how difficult it is to score more than 30 goals every year.
“What Cristiano can do is incredible. And I hope he will stay there for more years, giving joy to football lovers and representing Portugal very well, as he has always done.”
Ronaldo has scored over 90 goals in 126 games for the Bianconeri since his big-money move fromReal Madrid
