Usain Bolt believes that Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo will play “until he is 42” and that he is on a different level.
The forward’s first spell at Man Utd came to an end in 2009. He has since had highly successful spells at Real Madrid and Juventus.
Over the years, he has won the Ballon d’Or on five separate occasions. He has also won the Champions League on five separate occasions.
The 36-year-old has now returned to Manchester United on a two-year deal from Juventus. He is in line to make his second debut for the club this weekend against Newcastle United.
Man Utd fan Bolt has been asked about the attacker’s return in an interview with BBC Sport. He believes that Ronaldo “is on a different level” than other players:
“It’s a massive deal to see him back.
“Cristiano [Ronaldo] demands a lot, so he will demand a lot from these players and it will only make them better. He’s on a different level, he is a machine.
“I think he will play until he’s 42 because he will always be so fit and on a higher level to a lot of the younger players because of the work he puts in and the dedication he has.”
