Ronaldo's pre-season workouts appeared on Saturday to be paying off. His
figure looks noticeably slimmer as he is close to reaching his ideal weight to
return to the soccer field. Thus far, the athlete has lost somewhere between six
and seven kilograms
The technical director of the Corinthians soccer team, Antonio Carlos Zago,
made the revelation during Saturday's practice. The announcement came after
trying to avoid any skepticism after Ronaldo went out with his friends on
Thursday to enjoy a night on the Sao Paulo town. Zago claims that there are no
problems what soever with the player having a little fun.
Despite Zago's comments on the player's weight, the club is keeping his actual
weight a secret. The estimated weight of Ronaldo, which is not confirmed by the
Corinthians team, is around90 kilos. When he arrived at the Corinthians training
facility in December, he claimed he was around five or six kilos over weight,
weighing in at 95 kilos.
Even though Ronaldo may have achieved his ideal weight, his return to the sport
is still uncertain. He continues to workout to improve his physique and his
cardiovascular shape. His expected return is scheduled for the end of February
or the beginning of March.
