Brazilian legend Ze Roberto insisits he has a better physique than Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
In the nicest way possible, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is an absolute specimen and still has the physical state of a 20-year old despite now being 35 years of age.
However, former Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen and Real Madrid midfielder Ze Roberto thinks he’s in even better shape and challenged Ronaldo to play into his 40s.
“Today I would say that I have a better physique, because I played until I was 43-years-old,” he told Tyc Sports.
“If he does, I will say it is him.”
The ex Selecao international definitely has a point. Aged 46, Ze Roberto is absolutely shredded and regularly posts videos and him working out relentlessly.
