Ronaldo Reveals He Wants To Get Fit To Help Real Valladolid

Could there be much more help than getting help from one of the best strikers to have ever roamed the planet. Real Valladolid could be about to find out if their new owner Ronaldo gets fit enough.

Before Cristiano Ronaldo the name Ronaldo belonged to just one man, The Phenomenon.

It's not like people these days don't know who Ronaldo is or how good he was but it must be annoying for one of the great strikers of all time that every time someone says his name it has to be prefaced by the extremely disrespectful 'fat' or just 'Brazilian.'

Now 42 the original, and best (fight me), Ronaldo recently took over as owner of La Liga side Real Valladolid. We'd of course love him to come out of retirement, sign himself and play up front, preferably against former sides Real Madrid and Barcelona.

However he's actually ruled that out, which is a massive shame, instead the Brazilian has discussed getting himself fit so he can help in training.

Speaking to El Norte de Castilla he said:

"I have not come to play. I am not in shape for that.

"I will start training and getting fit so I can train with the boys and contribute a bit in the technical area, always in agreement with the coach.

"This is going to be a very important year for this project, the most important one.

"We do not have the best facilities in the world, but it is about getting the best out of our facilities for our players, for our academy."

Ronaldo has only been chairman of the club since buying a 51% stake in the club for €30 million at the beginning of this month but he's clearly dedicated in improving them.

If you're a striker there wouldn't be a better person to learn off than someone who used to be the World Cup leading scorer of all time.

Valladolid haven't started the season well. The La Liga side sit in 19th with only just two points after losing two of their opening two games and picking up two draws.

They could probably do with Ronaldo.
