However, Ze Roberto thinks he is in a better shape than Ronaldo to play in his 40s.

"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." Ze Roberto told Tyc Sports.

At the age of 46, Ze Roberto is actually incredibly fit and has a body that could put many youngsters to shame.

Ze Roberto had a 23-year long career in the game, turning out for a total of 10 clubs - including Real, Leverkusen, Bayern (twice) and Hamburg, as well as five clubs in his native Brazil.

He finished his career with Palmeiras in December 2017 and took up a role as a technical advisor at the club.

In total, Ze Roberto made 648 appearances in his incredibly long club career and scored 81 goals. He made 84 appearances for his country Brazil during their golden generation, and scored six goals.

He won the Copa America and the FIFA Confederations Cup twice with Brazil.
