Ronaldo pens emotional letter to fans amid coronavirus pandemic

first_img “When I suffered my first and most serious knee injury, there were people who said that I would never play again, and that I could never even walk again. “I felt like my own life was being taken from me. It was in those moments that my limits were tested, and I fought to change those opinions and show everyone that I could do what I wanted most. “They were three very hard years of rehabilitation, motivated by the desire to feel all that I could only feel on the field, with the ball at my feet. “In the end, the moment came, perhaps the most iconic of my entire career: in 2002, in Japan, playing a World Cup final with Brazil. Scoring two goals against Germany. For my country, the title of a five-time champion; for me, the consecration of my return. “I am sure that you too, when you look back, you will remember how many times you got up, of all your battles, and how many times you managed to overcome, throughout your life, to make the impossible possible and get to where you are being who you are. “If this letter reaches you today, it is because, among the choices of my life, one has been the Pucela (Valladolid). I have also chosen. I have also been passionate. “Like you, I look forward to the return to our home. I close my eyes and think about that Zorrilla full of fans. It is the passion that moves me. read also:Ramsey on Ronaldo: Incredible player, very good person “Off the field, I am still motivated to overcome every challenge.
