Playing in Russia? Why not? – Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo, says he does not rule out the possibility of him switching from Spanish football to the Russian Premier League.

­Ronaldo gave an interview to at the global premiere of Castrol EDGE Presents Ronaldo Tested to the Limit documentary film, which took place in the Spanish capital.

And when asked a about the possibility of joining the likes of Samuel Eto’o and Roberto Carlos, who play for super-rich Anzhi Makhachkala, in the Russian Premier League, the Portuguese footballer’s answer was: “Why not?”

“I know that the Russian football championship is becoming stronger. And I have no objections to someday be playing in your country. In football you never know what’ll happen to you tomorrow, so if I end up in Russia, one shouldn’t raise his eyebrows in surprise,” he said.

“However, at the moment I’m quite comfortable with Real,” the 26-year-old added.

The authors of the movie made Ronaldo undergo a series the most rigorous scientific test really pushing the player to the limit of his abilities.  

“It’s the first time I had to go on the pitch not in front of the fans, but in front of dozens of cameras. Nevertheless, it seems, I coped with my task pretty well,” he said.

The 2008 FIFA World Player of the Year said the facts the documentary revealed became eye-opening, even for himself.

“I saw how my body, actually, works – when I jump, shoot at the goals and come at the end of crosses… It was all a bit unusual, but thanks to Castrol EDGE, I figured out how to get the maximum of Cristiano Ronaldo,”
the player explained.
