Ze Roberto claims he has a ‘better physique’ than Cristiano Ronaldo and challenges Juventus star to play until he’s 43

BRAZIL LEGEND Ze Roberto has claimed that he has a “better physique” than Cristiano Ronaldo.

The ripped 46-year-old recently stunned fans on Instagram when he showed off his incredible body.

Cristiano Ronaldo is not shy in showing off his ripped torso

Ze Roberto, formerly of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, possesses a figure more akin to a bodybuilder with his bulging muscles, than that of your average retired footballer.

And speaking about the shape he’s kept himself in, the 84-cap former full-back compared himself favourably with Juve star CR7.

He told TyC Sports: “Today I would say that I have a better physique, because I played until I was 43-years-old.

“If he does, I will say it is him.”

Roberto left European football nine years ago, when he departed Hamburg.

A season in Qatar followed, as he moved to Al-Gharafa.

He then played another five years in his native Brazil, first with Gremio, before finishing his glittering career with Palmeiras in 2017.

Roberto also opened up about what it was like at Real Madrid in the nineties – as well as sharing a dressing room with Selecao team-mate Ronaldo Fenomeno – who trained “like an animal”.

He said: “It was a shock. I was looking at the other players, all dressed up…

“I had to go to Corte Ingles to buy clothes. To avoid embarrassment.

“When I arrived, Fernando Redondo looked like a model. Redondo was one of the best players with whom I’ve played.

“The best in midfield. With class, his left foot.

“Ronaldo loved parties.

Ze Roberto played well into 40s

Cristiano is still going strong at 35

“He went out and arrived the other day to train and what he was able to do in training was impossible, really incredible.

“He almost didn’t sleep, drank his glasses and the other day he still trained like an animal.

“Others tried to do the same, only the next day they were completely dead.”

Ronaldo enjoyed partying… but would still train ‘like an animal’ the next day
