Real Madrid's Ronaldo works with Capello for first time
Ronaldo had his first training session
under Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello yesterday.
The Brazilian striker hasn't trained with his Real teammates for over
two months after undergoing knee surgery during the summer.
Capello worked closely with Ronaldo yesterday, well aware that the burly
striker is close to his ideal weight (89kgs) and over his knee
complaints. The Real coach wants the Brazilian available as soon as
possible as he sees him as a strike-partner for Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Capello has failed to be convinced by Raul in the opening weeks of this
Ronaldo participated in a bounce game and showed positive signs that he
is near match fitness after being worked hard by coach Jose Luis San
Martin in the last few weeks.
