Ronaldo to be sidelined for more Corinthians matches
Despite expressing his strong desire to play for Corinthians, former Brazil
international striker Ronaldo will have to remain sidelined for a few weeks
before fully recovering from his haunting injuries.
Ronaldo has not played for Corinthians since their debut in the 2010
Brazilian Championship on May 9 when they beat Atletico-PR 2-1. The player
suffered a right calf muscle strain and has been sidelined ever since.
As the Brazilian Championship resumed after a one-month break due to the
World Cup in South Africa, the striker told the medical staff at Corinthians
that he felt back to normal and ready to play. However, team doctor Joaquim
Grava denied Ronaldo the possibility of returning to action.
"He told me that he is ready to play. However, I told him that he cannot
play quite yet. He needs at least another 15 to 21 days before being fully
recuperated," said Grava.
Grava is attempting to healing Ronaldo's atrophy that he has suffered as a
result of his multiple injuries and surgeries.
