Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on Thursday said he is a huge Ronaldo fan and looks forward to his fine performance.
"I think Ronaldo will be a spectacle. I hope that he will be able to score the goals that the team has been unable to score," the president said of the Brazilian soccer star who has just joined Corinthians.
"If Ronaldo is unable to provide an immediate service to the team, he will fall under the scrutiny of the fans. However, since he is used to criticism and the pressure, he will end up scoring the goals the team needs."
