​Cristiano Ronaldo has reiterated that he doesn't see himself becoming a coach when he retires from playing football, though he has admitted that he isn't certain over what the future holds.


Ronaldo, speaking to FIFA's official website after winning their inaugural 'Best Player' prize earlier this week, admitted that even while he was seen giving orders to his Portugal teammates at the Euro 2016 final against France following injury, he can't quite see himself taking on the role full time.

Asked if he wanted to take such a role, he said: "Very difficult...never say never. I don't know what will happen in the future but in this moment I don't see myself becoming a coach."


Ronaldo was injured early in the win in Paris, but he went on to divulge what was going through his head at the time the match was going on, and revealed in the process that despite also winning the Champions League with Real Madrid in 2016, that winning the European Championship was his proudest moment.


"I think it (winning Euro 2016) was the pinnacle of my career. Not to diminish my praise for the other trophies, the Champions League and Club World Cup, but this was special for being the first title in the history of Portugal.

"It was complicated. I started the game but I didn't finish. I was very nervous.


"I remember that I was in the dressing room. Then I went outside. I think my behaviour speaks for me really. I don't really have anything to say. The images don't lie. People can see how nervous I was. But I think it was a glorious day for Portugal.


"I'll return to saying again, it was a year of dreams - the collective performance, the individual performance, the team performance and the performance of the national team."
