However, a closer look at Ze Roberto’s impressive career and health journey reveals that this claim may not be as far-fetched as it initially seems.

Ze Roberto makes a bold claim about Cristiano Ronaldo

Ze Roberto was a Brazilian left-back who made a whopping 84 appearances for his national team. He retired in 2017 at the unbelievable age of 43. On the club level, he played for some of the big clubs like Real Madrid and FC Bayern Munich. And even after retiring, Roberto kept his healthy diet and workout routine, which helped him even at the age of 48 become shredded and in a good shape.

Ze Roberto talked about a main reason to back up his bold claim. “Today I would say that I have a better physique, because I played until I was 43-years-old,” he said. “If he (Cristiano Ronaldo) does, I will say it is him.” It is clear if the Portuguese striker wants the Brazilian legends’ approval, he will have to continue playing soccer at least till 43 years of age.
