Ronaldo back in the game

Latest update : 2009-03-06

After a year away from the field because of an injury, Brazilian veteran Ronaldo, delighted to be back, played his first game with his new team Corinthians, who notched up a 2-0 Brazilian Cup victory over Itumbiara.

AFP - Brazilian World Cup winner Ronaldo, who was sidelined for over a year because of a crippling knee injury, said it was an 'incredible feeling' to be back.
  
"To be back on the pitch produced a great feeling. It really is a fantastic emotion," said Ronaldo who came on as a substitute for Corinthians, his ninth club, on Wednesday.
  
His 67th-minute appearance in the 2-0 Brazil Cup victory over Itumbiara ended a 387-day period on the sidelines following a rupture to his left knee while playing for AC Milan.
  
"I have suffered a lot in the last year being away from the pitch," Ronaldo told TV Globo.
  
"This is only the start. I have a lot to do to get better. There's another game on Sunday. I can't play every match but I will try and play as much as I can."
