Ronaldo said:

“Life is not just about football.

“Although football is my grand passion, I must start to think about the future. I don’t have many years left, about 10 more or less, so I must look to the future.

“When I was young I had the dream of having my own hotel, now I have two, and I am proud it is in Lisbon.

“I couldn’t not have a hotel in Lisbon, a city which is part of my history as I have played here.”

Ronaldo and  Pestana were said to have invested €15 million in the hospitality partnership, with two new hotels expected to pop out in Madrid and New York in the near future.
