Ronaldo retires from football

Legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldo has today ended a glittering career that included goal-laden spells at Inter and Milan.
The striker, now 34-years-old, has struggled with knee injuries for the majority of his career but was one of his generation’s greatest players nevertheless. He is currently playing in his home country for Corinthians but has announced his intention to retire from the game immediately.
Ronaldo is visibly not fit enough for the rigours of professional football and lately, the Corinthians fans have turned on him for his lack of goals. He was blamed for the club’s exit from the Copa Liberatores and has now called time on a career that includes a vast array of accolades.
He said: “I can’t take it any more. I wanted to carry on but I can’t.
“I plan to move in a game but I cannot execute it as I wish. The time is up.”

Ronaldo’s incredible CV boasts over 400 career goals, 15 of which make him the all-time top scorer at World Cups. With Brazil, he won the tournament in 1994 and 2002, as well as two Copa Americas and a Confederations Cup.
He also has two cup and two league wins from his time with Cruzeiro and, more recently, Corinthians. Ronaldo won the Dutch cup with PSV Eindhoven, and the Spanish cup and UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup with Barcelona.
With Inter, he added a UEFA Cup to his resume, before winning the league twice in Spain with Real Madrid. He also won an Intercontinental Cup (now named World Club Championship) with Real.
Ronaldo also won a host of personal awards for his ability, the most prestigious of being the three FIFA World Player of the Year prizes in 1996, 1997 and 2002. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
