Pep Guardiola talked about Cristiano Ronaldo’s goalscoring abilities ahead of the Manchester derby in the Premier League this weekend.

Pep Guardiola believes that Cristiano Ronaldo will still be racking goals when he will be 75 years old. 

The Portuguese all-time great will be facing the Cityzens as the Premier League fans eagerly wait for the Manchester derby this weekend.

Ronaldo rejoined Manchester United late during this summer, returning to his old club after over a decade. And the 36-year-old is glowing with energy with nine goals for the Red Devils already.

Guardiola is expecting Cristiano to lead his team against Manchester City on Saturday. But, more so, the Spaniard knows that Ronaldo will never stop scoring goals in the future.

“He will score goals all his life,” Guardiola told Sky Sports. “He will be 75 years old, maybe retired, but he would be at his own barbecue playing a game and he’ll score goals.

“These types of guys, like [Lionel] Messi, like him, what they have done in the last decade in world football scoring goals and goals and goals and helping their team win, it speaks for itself.

“It’s good for the Premier League that he’s back. United belongs to Cristiano and Cristiano belongs to United. It’s a good fit. It was in the past. Maybe it will be in the present and the future. We’ll see.”
