A weary Ronaldo will be back


The problem with being Ronaldo is finding time for a life, for tranquillity, for something remotely like privacy.

At 28, he has been living a surreal and phenomenal existence since his 17th birthday and the birth that year of his international career for Brazil. The world moved into his life from that moment on, and when he scores or he sneezes, when he is on top of his game or struggling to be better than all the rest, the soap opera of world acclaim invades his space.

On Monday, Luiz Nazario de Lima Ronaldo was dropped from the Brazil squad that will face Paraguay in World Cup qualification this weekend, and Argentina on June 8.

He had asked for a holiday, and asked to be released from the Confederations Cup in Germany from June 15-29. He is sound in body, but disturbed in his soul following the breakup with his latest fiancee, Daniella Cicarelli. The romance was world news; the breakup no less so.

Just three months ago, what Ronaldo and Cicarelli called their "wedding" at a castle in Chantilly, near Paris, was attended by the glitterati of soccer, show biz and Cicarelli's exotic world of modeling and television.

It was a Valentine's Day declaration of betrothal. Only the fact that their respective divorces had not been made final in the eyes of the Roman Catholic Church and the lack of a French license prevented it from being a wedding.

We can usually tell from Ronaldo's form when his life is tranquil. He plays, perhaps as one of the greatest-ever goalscorers should, with the face of a child. He believes the ball is there to be put into the net, and he does it well.

Only Pele, with 77 goals in official internationals, has scored more for Brazil than Ronaldo, who so far has 56. Ronaldo had lost two years to a knee injury that would have ended the career of a less determined, less boyishly optimistic character. He came back to score eight times at the 2002 World Cup - more than anyone else in the finals for more than a quarter of a century.

The two goals he scored against Germany to win the final entitle him to think that, even in Brazil where fabulous strikers emerge on a regular basis, he has a World Cup future.

He does. Carlos Alberto Parreira, the Brazil coach, sees Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Kaká as his three most precious talents. Yet he had no choice but to play it tough - or at least not to be seen by the pervasive Brazil media to make exception for Ronaldo.

"Nobody is irreplaceable," Parreira said. "They're quite welcome to stay at home if they don't want to play. In fact, it's better if they stay away, because otherwise they'll just get in the way of the others."

Adriano, the powerful Inter Milan striker, will play. Grafite of São Paulo has been summoned to the squad for the games against Paraguay and Argentina. Julio César of Sevilla will be there at the Confederations Cup once he has played in the Spanish Cup Final.

So Ronaldo, who said on Monday that he was prepared and ready to play in the two World Cup qualifiers but needed a rest and "a chance to forget about the things I've been through," has effectively been told that he cannot pick and choose his availability for national team duty.

"It would be great just to play the World Cup," Parreira said when he returned to Rio de Janeiro from watching three Brazilians in the Champions League final last week. "It would be great for me if I could just coach the team at World Cups and not have to worry about qualifiers and the friendlies where there is a lot of wear and tear."

What was said between the coach and the player over the telephone will have been slightly different. Parreira is a kind of surrogate father to all the Ronaldos at his beck and call, and there is never an easy time to separate the individual needs and the collective purpose.

Parreira is waiting for Mario Zagallo, the coach who first included Ronaldo in a Brazil squad, to rejoin his staff after abdominal surgery. Zagallo, 74, has been involved in four of Brazil's five World Cup triumphs.

"He's making an unbelievable recovery," Parreira said. "Knowing Zagallo, he will be with us in Argentina."

Yet, even before Ronaldo asked for permission to skip the Confederations Cup - which is an eight-nation rehearsal for next year's World Cup in Germany - the coach knew he faced a defining moment when his players gathered at Teresopolis, the mountain retreat where they train high above Rio.

"You have seen how Ronaldinho has risen in the world," Parreira said in Istanbul a week ago. "He is now the world No. 1 player. I cannot tell Ronaldinho anything about football.

"When we get together, this will be the first time that Ronaldo is less high in esteem than Ronaldinho. I have spent three days in Barcelona with Ronaldinho. He's so special there, he's king."

The ultimate test of man-management, assimilating both Ronnies and not allowing Ronaldo to sense that he is any the less special, is postponed. Time moves on, Adriano is growing, others might burst onto the team as irrepressibly as Ronaldo did in his teens.

The media crawl over every movement in and around the Brazil squad. And Daniella Cicarelli, not the first and possibly not the last model in Ronaldo's life, has returned to her own pre-Ronaldo fame with the MTV channel in Rio.

Wind back the clock exactly one year. Brazil beat Argentina, 3-1, in World Cup qualification at Belo Horizonte. The home country hero was Ronaldo, Ronaldo and Ronaldo.

He scored all three goals, all from penalties because the Argentine defenders could not cope with his pace, his persistence, his sheer desire. We have not seen the last of it.
