Cristiano Ronaldo may be one of the world’s best footballers right now – but the 33-year-old won’t be playing the game forever.

So, what happens if you retire him on FIFA 18?

Is there a secret cutscene? Dos EA Sports pay a tribute to the Portuguese great?

Firstly, DTT confirmed the Real Madrid ace’s retirement by clicking on one of the options on his Career Mode player menu.

The option to retire a player always pops up, regardless of age in Career Mode.

Amazingly, the star immediately goes into management – and becomes the manager of, wait for it, Barcelona.

But it’s not the main squad – Ronaldo’s the new chief of the ‘B’ team, earning a fraction of what he was pocketing as a player.

For his management services, the Portuguese takes home just £13,000 a week. That’s what some Championship players are on.

Bizarrely, the game doesn’t seem to cope with the idea of Ronaldo becoming a manager – and replaces his head with someone who looks nothing like him.

Who the Hell is that guy?
