Brazilian legendary striker Ronaldo looks at getting back to fitness and attempting a comeback with US club Fort Lauderadale Strikers.
Ronaldo, 38, recently became a minority owner with the Strikers, who play in America’s second division North American Soccer League (NASL).
“It isn’t easy to get fit. I will try. I will train a lot and if the coach needs me, maybe (I will make my comeback),” Ronaldo said at a news conference.
“To play a soccer game you have to be in very good shape so I will try.
“I’ll start another challenge and I’m sure it will help the league and it will help the team and help soccer in America.”
Ronaldo last played with Brazilian club Corinthians in 2011. The three-time World Player of the Year won the World Cup with Brazil in 1998 and 2002, finishing as top-scorer in the latter tournament with eight goals.
He had spells at Barcelona, PSV Eindhoven, Inter Milan and Real Madrid during his illustrious professional playing days.
