At the end of Real Madrid’s 1 – 1 home draw with Eibar on Sunday, Cristiano Ronaldo flew to his home country to open a second Pestana/CR7 Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal.
At the launch of the 200-room hotel whose prices go between 200 and 1250 euros, the 31-year-old Portuguese captain reiterated that he’ll like to play till he’s 40.
“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.”
