Is this end of the road for Ronaldo ?

Ronaldo cries in pain during the match against Livorno Brazilian and AC Milan striker glittering career could soon be over following his latest injury. On Wednesday, Ronaldo ruptured ligaments in his left knee after landing badly in a match against Livorno. This is a same type of injury which he suffered around 8 years ago and it took him around 2 years to regain his fitness. Now it is very doubtful whether the 31 year old striker can recover from this type of injury again.

He now faces around 10 months on the sidelines after the surgery. But the time and age maybe against him. His contract with Milan expires in the summer and there were already doubts whether it would be renewed or not. Now Milan will have to enter the market to buy a new striker and that may well be the end to his, at least Milan career. According to Milan medical officer, he can only make a comeback if he is ready to face the long and difficult rehabilitation at 31. But knowing his character, he will work hard to make a comeback.

When fit, he was one of the deadliest assassin in front of the goal, probably the best striker in one-on-one situations. He knew how to keep his head cool and that has undoubtly earned him the World Player of the year award three times and European Footballer of the year twice. If his career would end this way, it would be a sad end to a glittering career. If we don’t see him on a field again, we will definitely remember him as one of the best.

Some of his best career moments

  • Scoring 55 goals in 2 years at PSV Eindhoven
  • Inspiring Brazil to the 2002 World Cup scoring 8 goals along the way
  • Scoring a stunning hat trick against Manchester United in the Champions League which was even applauded by the Old Trafford fans
  • He became the highest ever goal scorer  in World Cup finals in 2006
