Corinthians fans protest against Ronaldo

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.
