From growing up playing soccer on the streets of Funchal, Portugal, to winning the most prestigious soccer tropies, it’s safe to say Ronaldo has exceeded even his own expectations. And the legendary forward says if he had to finish his career now, he would do so happily.

Speaking to Brazilian YouTube channel, Central Desimpedidos, the 33 year old said, “I never dreamed I would win five Ballon d'Or awards. If I had to finish my career now I would do so super happy. I have won everything.”

As reported by Sports Illustrated, Ronaldo has secured 27 team trophies with Sporting CP, Manchester United and Los Blancos, as well as 12 personal accolades.

One achievement that has proven elusive is winning a World Cup. But Portugal has been drawn in Group B, along with Spain, Morocco and Iran, at the upcoming World Cup and the dad of three believes the reigning European champions could cause an upset in Russia.

For now, however, Ronaldo is content. “If I win another one, two or three Ballon d'Ors then I will be delighted but if not I already won five.”

When asked whether he had any dreams still to attain in football, he replied, “sincerely I don't think I have any”.

“I achieved everything I dreamed of in football. I really think I have achieved so many nice things that I don't have any more dreams. If you ask me if I want to keep winning – of course I do. Obviously I would love to win the World Cup. But if my career ended now I would be very proud. I never thought my career was going to be so nice.”
