Football Genius: Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima
The phenomenon with Brasil jersey A young Ronaldo withe Cruzeiro A phenomenon of name and fact, one of the strongest and most beautiful players to see playing with the ball between the feet that have ever existed on the planet earth. So good as unlucky. Yet his football career could not have started better, at the age of 18 he was among the reserves on the bench to the green-gold national team of Brazil that won the World Cup in the USA in 1994 in the final against Italy. An excellent start for what at the time was considered just a boy with a promising future, the only fact of being part of the Brazilian rose, which, especially at the time was full of Champions, was a goal that very few players at its own age could claim. Here is at PSV Eindhoven During his too short career he managed to win in any team he was, with his national team he managed to conquer even two World Cups, and in his origin country, with the Cruzeiro jersey at the beginning of his career and with that of the Corinthians at the end of it, he managed to win at least once every trophy available at home. After a year in Brazil he played two seasons in the Netherlands, with the PSV jersey on his shoulders, during which he was able to score a lot but only to win a national cup. The story changed really soon, once landed in Spain with the shirt of Barcelona and Real Madrid, and in the middle five years with that of Inter FC. In Spain he manages to "eat" all the possible trophies, also winning a Cup Winners' Cup with the blaugrana and an intercontinental with the blancos, while with the Nerazzurri he gets to grab only one UEFA Cup. Barcelona Number 9 Only in Milan is missing the call, before returning home, where he does not win anything and didn't play too much with both teams, but despite this he has the impressive average goal of one score every two games. If you consider high this average you should think again because before it was much higher, reaching the top of his career to deposit the ball on the door almost every game played, just phenomenal. This nickname could not be more adapt, to see him play I always came to mind that adjective, a special player, that according to his teammates, was a lovely person with a huge heart, but unfortunately had the misfortune of suffering serious injuries, I still have in mind the impressive image of that April 12, 2000, the match was Lazio-Inter in the Italian Cup, when he turned his knee after returning to the field shortly after an important operation , that episode led him to have to stop again for long time. Balon d'Or winner with F.C. Inter During years there are those who have been hard with him, maybe too much, were given so many heavy accusations, from finished to obese, and then discover years later that at that time was affected by thyroidism. Lover of beautiful women and parties, harshly criticized for this passion, apparently a really strong one, he justified himself during an interview by saying that it's normal when you are young to do certain things. If we go to take a look at the awards he won individually we might be stunned, they are a considerable crowd, for all the sportsmen of the world he was one of the best players of all time, those who can boast this estimate, practically unanimously, could be counted on the fingers of one hand. Ronaldo with Real Madrid jersey Balon d'Or in 1997 and 2002, Golden shoe in 1997, best World Cup scorer in South Korea and Japan in 2002 with 8 goals, these are just some of the goals he achieved individually, the most prestigious ones, on a collective level with the teams in which he has played he has missed only the Champions League, which could easily be compensated with the trophy won with his national team, where he played well 98 matches, managing to score 62 goals. After retiring from football, in 2011, he founded together with Marcus Buaiz, ​​a sports-marketing company that deals with the image management of Brazilian footballers and sportsmen. In December of that same year he joined the board of the Brazilian Local Organizing Committee. In 2014 he bought 10% of the shares of Fort Lauderdale Strikers, becoming a minority partner, a club that plays in the North American Soccer League. In September 2018 he announced that he had acquired 51% of Real Valladolid shares. World Cup winner 616 official appearances played throughout his career, including club and national teams, in which he scored 414 times. An average score of 0.67 goals per game. The young boy from Flamengo has done a lot of way, he had to work hard and suffer the same, managing to enter the heart of any football fan for his sympathy, skill and immense class that has always shown on the field. Spectacular player who loved to give himself to mad joy as soon as possible, as he himself declared during an interview, in which he unveiled a funny short story: When I was a player, I had to hide the beer so they would not find out I was drinking. So I put it in Guarana's cans to cheat. Genius and lack of moderation united in one person.
