Corinthians' corpulent copulator makes his come back

On Wednesday, Ronaldo finally made his first appearance for Corinthians.

The former Brazil man came off the bench to manage around 25 minutes in his side’s 2-0 win over third division Itumbiara in the Copa do Brasil.

This was the 32-year-old’s first game since he picked up a serious knee injury playing for AC Milan in February 2008.

Ronaldo’s return created a huge amount of interest in Brazil. Before the match in the Estádio Juscelino Kubitschek, the player struggled to force his way through a mob of press, stadium officials, and security personnel who were blocking his way to the dug out.

Out of shape and clearly out of breath even after short sprints, the two-time World Cup winner managed a couple of dribbles but failed to get a shot on goal.

Despite being a staggering long way off match fitness, Corinthians had obviously decided that the only way to get Ronaldo in some kind of shape was to get him playing. Though they have never said anything officially, it had become clear that the club were fed up with the forward’s slow rate of progress, and his continued shenanigans off the pitch.

The game against Itumbiara was a gentle warm-up. On Sunday, Corinthians take on archenemies Palmeiras – a side who are still smarting from an embarrassing home defeat to Colo-Colo in the Libertadores and who are sure to be fired up for the clash in the Campeonato Paulista.
