This was said by the Portugal captain ahead of Man United's Premier League match against Liverpool on Sunday.
Last month, Ronaldo became the all-time leading scorer in international football.
When asked about his international retirement by Sky Sports, the 36-year-old said, "But Why?" I don't believe it is yet my time. It's not about what other people want; it's about what I want.
"It's when I don't feel like I can run, dribble, or shoot because my power is gone... yet I still have that thing, so I want to keep going because I'm still driven." It's the most important word — [motivated] to perform my job, to make others happy, including my family, fans, and myself. I'd like to raise the bar even more.
"You mention Portugal, but I have the most goals, wins, assists... everything in the Champions League." But I'd like to continue. Football is something I enjoy doing. It makes me glad to make people happy."
