Iconic footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo, may have discovered the philosopher in him following the early exit of Juventus from the Champions League.
His response to the development appears as philosophically grand as his career.
Reacting on Saturday, Ronaldo, who suffered the same fate as his ‘rival’ Messi, said:
“True champions never break! Our focus is already in Cagliari, in the Serie A struggle, in the Italian Cup final and in everything that we can still achieve this season,” Ronaldo said on Instagram, the first time he has spoken since Juventus crashed out of the last 16 to Porto.
“More important than the number of falls you take in life, is how fast and how strong you get back on your feet.
“It’s true that the past belongs in museums (I should say!), but fortunately, football has memory… and so do I,” the 36-year-old continued.
“History can’t be deleted, it’s written every single day with resilience, team spirit, persistence and lots of hard work. And those who don’t understand this, will never achieve glory and success.”
