Posted on | March 1, 2010 | No Comments

Ronaldo, by his real name Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, has set the retirement date for the end of the next year.



Ronaldo, aged 33, has recently signed a two years extension with his current club Corinthians and it seems that this years will be the last of his brilliant career. The former Brazilian superstar is considered one of the best strikers in the whole history of football.

Ronaldo who has won two “Ballon D’Or” and was named “Fifa Player Of The Year” three times participated with Brazil at four final tournaments where he managed to score 62 goals in 97 games.

Ronaldo is probably the only player who played for two rival clubs in two different countries. “Il Fenomeno” played during his career for Cruzeiro, PSV, Barcelona, Internazionale,  Real Madrid, Milan and Corinthians.

His fantastic career was interrupted by three major injuries, two of them while he was playing for Internazionale and the last one when he was at Milan. The last one was thought to end his career but he still founded resources to recover.

In the last interview Ronaldo talked also about one of his last wish as a footbaleer, to be in the Brazil squad for World Cup 2010.
