MILANO The idols of two generations met together. Pele' went to Ronie 's home to visit him.
A very spontaneous hug between them made this meeting even more special. Pele' comforted and encouraged Ronaldo: " I was seriously injured too, but then I came back to the game stronger than ever". Then the "myth" asked to see little Ronald: it was a truly moving scene to see them together.
After a conversation which covered all topics but particularly soccer, they had lunch together. Pele told Ronie about the time he had almost signed for Inter. In fact, Angelo Moratti had signed him twice from the Santos club.
He said: " The first time was in 1962, the second in '68. The transfer agreement had already been sealed with the Brazilian club, but I didn't feel like leaving Brazil".
So when Massimo Moratti, the then Chairman, phoned to say hello to Ronaldo and Pele, the Brazilian myth might have reminded with some regret of that lost opportunity when he might have come to Inter!


I think its great!!...Dont get me wrong, I admire Pele, but a lot of times he seemed self centered to me...So, it was quite a surprise for me...Poor guy needs all the support he can get....I am happy that Ronaldo had a kid between all of this crap...I am sure Ronald will give him a lot of happiness...If I was in his place, I would be in the Nut house...But I can see how a child can change your life...

Hope he becomes the next star....R9 mark II..
A better looking one too..hehe...

Ronaldo arrives in Brazil for long rest

RIO DE JANEIRO (May 27, 2000 1:24 p.m. EDT http://www.sportserver.com) - Ronaldo arrived home in Brazil on Saturday to begin a long period out of the spotlight after knee surgery last month.

"I'm here to rest. That's all I can do at this stage," the Inter Milan and Brazil striker said as he arrived at Rio's international airport.

Six weeks after injuring his right knee again and having an operation in Paris, Ronaldo was walking without crutches or sticks, but in obvious difficulty.

He said he expected to be in Brazil for between three and four months, but also planned brief monthly visits to France for specialist treatment and consultations with surgeon Gerard Saillant. Ronaldo will also continue his daily physiotherapy sessions while in Brazil.

The player was greeted by his parents, and had brought baby son Ronald to Brazil for the first time. Ronaldo did not predict when he would be back playing, although doctors have pencilled in 2001 as a conservative target.

"The idea is to allow Ronaldo to enjoy the support of his family and get out of the public spotlight until October, when he will start performing functions in his role as UNICEF ambassador," said the player's press spokesman, Rodrigo Tauder.

Ronaldo had received a visit from Pele in Milan shortly before flying to Brazil.

Pele reportedly reminded the 24-year-old that he, too, had come back from a career-threatening injury to play in the 1970 World Cup final.

"I really enjoyed the meeting," Ronaldo said.

Ronaldo has been plagued by knee injuries. He had his first operation in 1996, and underwent major surgery six months ago after partially tearing a tendon in his right knee.

On his comeback for Inter Milan on April 12, he suffered a torn tendon to the same knee.
