Only worked together for about half a year, but the former Italian coach Fabio Capello understood Ronaldo – he was talented but also disabled.
Capello worked with Ronaldo for the first half of the 2006-2007 season, when he led Real Madrid for a second term. This is the period of “Aliens” suffering from trauma. He also played a general, and sometimes weighed more than 100 kg. At the same time, Real recruited Ruud Van Nistelrooy from Man Utd. The Dutch striker won first place, and pushed Ronaldo to the bench.
“The biggest talent I’ve coached is Ronaldo, but he’s also the one who made the most trouble in the dressing room,” Capello said. Sky Italy May 19. “He was not absent at a party or any fun. One time Van Nistelrooy told me there was a smell of alcohol in the dressing room.”
Four months under Capello, Ronaldo played only 13 times and scored four goals. The decline in form and the unstable changing of the dressing room made him sold to AC Milan in January 2007 for $ 10 million.
This decision is good for both. Real regained stability and turned the wheel to victory, before reversing the situation in the championship race with Barca in La Liga. “After Ronaldo left, we knew how to win. However, if you only consider talent, there is no doubt that he is number one,” Capello emphasized.
In the opposite direction, Ronaldo also found inspiration to play with compatriots Kaka, Cafu, Dida, Serginho and Ricardo Oliveira. Having Ronaldo regularly release bullets in Serie A, the remaining strikers like Filipo Inzaghi, Alberto Gilardino put strength into the Champions League and put Milan on the championship.
