Fans of struggling Brazilian club Corinthians have protested
against Ronaldo’s lack of fitness.
About 200 fans attended the team’s training session on Saturday
to complain about Ronaldo, who is the team’s most expensive player
but has played in only three Brazilian league matches because of
his poor physical condition.
Fans chanted: ”Ronaldo, let’s play, Corinthians is not your
On his Twitter page, Ronaldo said the protest doesn’t help the
club and called for more ”respect.”
Corinthians hasn’t won in six matches and entered the weekend
third in the standings. It is five points behind leader Cruzeiro
with nine rounds remaining.
The club is without a coach since Adilson Batista quit after a
defeat last Sunday.
