Cristiano Ronaldo has denied suggestions that he is planning on standing for the Fifa presidency, currently held by Sepp Blatter.
Speaking ahead of the premiere of the new documentary exploring Ronaldo’s life, the Portuguese superstar denied suggestions that he was eyeing the top job in world football.
“I’m not smart enough for that,” Ronaldo began, as per L’Equipe. “But don’t worry about me, I think I’ll still be able to play for a few years yet.
“In the future I will have other interesting projects, rather than being Fifa President!”
While Ronaldo’s ruling out this potential option for his future, questions remain about the next step in the superstar’s career.
The forward has been heavily tipped for the exit door at the Bernabeu after rumours emerged that Ronaldo had had a fall out with new Merengues coach Rafael Benitez.

Since then, Ronaldo has been heavily linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, particularly after he was snapped chatting fondly to PSG coach Laurent Blanc after the Champions League match between the French champions and Real in the Champions League.
Similarly, he has been tipped with a move back to Manchester United, although the player himself has admitted his desire to play in Major League Soccer.
