This day in history of Ronaldo
MILAN, Oct 19 (Reuters) - World Player of the Year Ronaldo has welcomed Inter Milan's decision to sack his former coach Hector Cuper.
"I am pleased for all the Inter supporters," Ronaldo told Italian television on Sunday, just hours after Cuper was sacked by Inter and replaced by former AC Milan coach Alberto Zaccheroni.
"I am speaking as an Inter fan because I have remained one and I was hoping that coach would go as soon as possible," added the Real Madrid forward.
Ronaldo left Inter for Real last year after five seasons in Milan and cited Cuper as one of the reasons behind his decision to quit the Italian club.
The Brazilan's appearances for Inter had been limited after two serious knee operations but he recovered to lead Brazil to their World Cup triumph in 2002 before joining Real.
"I left because of differences with Cuper that is true," said Ronaldo, "I felt he was too defensive and we didn't agree on things even if there weren't specific problems."
