A versatile attacker , Ronaldo is capable of playing on either wing as well as through the centre of the pitch,  and, while ostensibly right-footed, is very strong with both feet.
While at Sporting and during his first season at Manchester United, he was typically deployed as a traditional winger on the right side of midfield, where he regularly looked to deliver crosses into the penalty area.
In this position, he was able to use his pace and acceleration, agility, and technical skills to take on opponents in one-on-one situations.

In his final seasons at United, Ronaldo played an even more attacking and central role, functioning both as a striker and as a supporting forward , or even as an attacking midfielder on occasion.
He brought in a more dynamic showmanship. He places the ball down, the concentration level is high, he takes his certain amount of steps back so that his standing foot is in the perfect place to hit the ball in the sweet spot.
He is the ultimate showman. He has that slight arrogance. He was a perfect physical specimen. Such incredible power matched to his technical skills could make him unstoppable.
I bought all the books, all the videos and I studied what it could be like to be the best. I set off on that path. Then I met Ronaldo.
Some players were technical, some were quick, some were strong, some were smart Ronaldo was all of those. He was a beast; it was unfair to everyone else.
He was slim and powerful, skillful, fast and deadly. He was ridiculously good. Ronaldo adapted to the Italian style of the game in his first season, finishing with 25 Serie A goals, and was named Serie A Footballer of the Year.
He began racking up assists, became first-choice penalty taker, taking and scoring freekicks. Milan in the Derby della Madonnina.
Ronaldo and prolific Fiorentina striker Gabriel Batistuta were the two best strikers in Serie A, with their duels the most anticipated in Italy. Running through defence to go one on one with Lazio goalkeeper Luca Marchegiani , Ronaldo feinted to go right then left, without touching the ball, leaving Marchegiani on his backside, before going right and slotting the ball into the net.
He proved that he was a cut above the rest that season. After two seasons with Inter, A. Milan defender Paolo Maldini viewed Ronaldo and Diego Maradona as the two best players he ever faced, stating, "Ronaldo during his first two years at Inter was a phenomenon.
In his final two seasons at Real Madrid, Ronaldo missed a number of games with injuries and weight issues, and with the acquisition of Ruud van Nistelrooy in , he grew further out of favour with the manager Fabio Capello.

On 18 January , it was reported that Ronaldo agreed terms with A. After his move to Milan, Ronaldo joined the list of the few players to have played for both Inter Milan and A.
Milan in the Derby della Madonnina , and is one of two players to have scored for both rival teams in the Milan derby game for Inter in the —99 season and for A.

On 13 February , Ronaldo suffered a severe season-ending knee injury while jumping for a cross in Milan 1—1 draw with Livorno, and was stretchered off and taken to a hospital.
It marked the third such occurrence of this injury, which he suffered twice to his right knee in and His reaction was the same.
I called him last evening and told him to believe in himself. He has enormous physical potential. Corinthians made an offer that will let me continue my career.
His second goal, a chip over the Santos goalkeeper from 30 yards out, sent the Corinthians fans into hysteria. Ronaldo scored in Corinthians 4—2 aggregate defeat of Internacional in the final of the Copa do Brasil , helping the club win the trophy for the third time the second of his career , thus earning a spot in the Copa Libertadores He finished the Brazilian Serie A with 12 goals in 20 matches.
In February , after Corinthians were eliminated from the Copa Libertadores by the Colombian team Deportes Tolima , Ronaldo announced his retirement from football, concluding an year career.
Mentally I wanted to continue but I have to acknowledge that I lost to my body. Ronaldo made his international debut for Brazil on 23 March , in a friendly match in Recife against Argentina.
In the Olympic Games in Atlanta , Ronaldo played with the name Ronaldinho on his shirt, since centre back Ronaldo Guiaro , two years his senior, was one of his teammates.
Brazil went on to win the bronze medal. He was named player of the tournament in , was the top scorer in , and he scored in the finals of both — against Bolivia in and Uruguay in Hours before the final he suffered a convulsive fit.
Ronaldo was the last Brazilian player out of the tunnel as the teams entered the field. During the playing of the Brazil national anthem the camera focused on him throughout, with Ronaldo showing little emotion.
Was it stress, epilepsy, or had he been drugged? With him, it was a different story. It was a fabulous feeling actually to hold it in my hands and kiss it.
Ronaldo scored against every opponent in the tournament except in the quarter-finals against England. It was a team without any vanity, or individuals.

His coach at Barcelona, Bobby Robson , commented: Had he managed to stay free of injury, he had every chance of becoming the best footballer ever.
He was so natural, so cool, so utterly in control. He would dip the shoulder, step over, and bang!. What stood out to all of us, from the moment we met Ronnie, was that he could do things which other players found very difficult and make them look easy.
But he could also produce those things while running at an unbelievable, explosive pace. There will never, in my view, be a better player than him.
Ronaldo, as so many of those who looked up to him acknowledge, changed what it is to be a centre-forward. Every time you see a striker who is expected to hold the ball up, beat players, win headers, shoot from range, drop deep, do everything a striker can possibly do — it might be worth remembering him.
He shifted boundaries, challenged convention, just as much as Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have altered our perceptions of what a winger might be.
Ronaldo, the original Ronaldo, inspired a phalanx of imitators, players we see on our screens every weekend.
But he also turned the game so that it will always look just a little bit like him. More than most, he made that No.
Most strikers need the midfielders and their teammates, but he does not. The speed of thought he had — and the speed he had to carry out his actions — were perfect.
He was impossible to stop. At the first check you passed, the second burned you, the third humiliated you. He looked like an extraterrestrial.
Ronaldo in his prime was able to do that better than anyone who has ever played the game. The other Ronaldo and Messi were brilliant teenagers but had nothing like the same impact at that age.
Football is all about passion. We want to build the best team possible to compete while also giving information about our management with transparency.
Or talks about it. In a interview with Folha de S. Paulo , Ronaldo revealed that, somewhat unexpectedly, he identified racially as white ,  generating a wider conversation about the complex role of race in Brazil.

In April , Ronaldo was involved in a scandal involving three travesti prostitutes whom he met in a nightclub in Rio de Janeiro. Coincidentally, Maria Alice was born exactly 10 years after her older brother Ronald.
The boy was born after a brief relationship between Ronaldo and Michele Umezu, a Brazilian waitress who Ronaldo first met in Tokyo in So he just had this amazing aura, where everyone wanted to join him.
He was a wonderful person. Everybody would second that, no matter what club he played for. Taking on the World Ronaldo has appeared in various commercials, from Snickers chocolate bar to Pirelli tyres.

Ronaldo at the World Cup in Russia. He was still a kid. It was in a game where he ended up scoring five goals.
From that point on he showed he was truly a phenomenon. I love [Lionel] Messi , I played many times with Cristiano [Ronaldo] and I adore him, Neymar is outstanding, Ronaldinho was exceptional—but if you put all of them together, you might get what Ronaldo was that season.
In the s, in his physical pomp, in his free-flowing prime, there was nothing remotely like him. By the time the World Cup came along his reputation had extended to the point of fully formed marvel.
This victory, for our fifth world title, has crowned my recovery and the work of the whole team. They were the first to drop from the penalty box to pick up the ball in midfield, switch to the flanks, attract and disorientate the central defenders with their runs, their accelerations, their dribbling.
Watching him was like watching a character in a video game. At his fearsome peak for PSV, Barcelona and Inter Milan he was arguably the most dangerous striker the world has ever seen.
