A World Cup winner with France in 1998, Frank Leboeuf has urged football superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo to consider quitting now in order for him not to leave the sport on a low point.
It is evident that Ronaldo is not the player he was at Real Madrid, and the former Chelsea defender thinks that it would do his legacy good if he quits on a high rather than prolong his career and see his powers wane.
“Do you know what? I think there is a time where you have to think: ‘What do I do with my life and my career’,” the Frenchman told ESPN
“And maybe it’s time for Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of his career to wonder and have a discussion with himself, and maybe some of his family, to know what he has to do for the rest of his career, if there is a future in his career.
“I don’t want to watch Ronaldo and have pity, because he’s been on the top for so many years.
“I don’t want him to be a normal player. He’s been an exceptional player for so long.”
“I’d prefer him to give up his career at the top instead of maybe trying to play for two or three more years and not being the player that he used to be.”
