Brazilian football star Ronaldo to visit India for next ISL

Macau: Football fans in India will have to wait for another year to get a glimpse of former Brazilian legend Ronaldo as he would be able to accept his long-time friend and ex-teammate Roberto Carlos' invitation to watch the ISL only in 2016.


"I would love to go to India and watch the Indian Super League once. But this time, I have to go back to Brazil. So I would not be able to make it to India this year. But for sure, I am coming to India in the next season," Ronaldo, who is currently playing at the ongoing Asian Poker Championship here, today told PTI.

One of the best strikers of all time, Ronaldo, however, denied that he would be seen in action at the football field.

"There is no happy news for football fans. I am not coming back (to play) as I am not that fast anymore, like I used to be in the old times," he said when asked if he plans to be a part of ISL either as a player or a coach.

Having played football at the top level for 17 years and being a part of the World Cup-winning Brazil team twice, Ronaldo said he took up poker professionally after retirement as he was missing the emotion of being in a competitive field.
