Ronaldo beats Liverpool owner to buying Brazilian club


Liverpool owners FSG have been 'beaten' by football legend Ronaldo to the purchase of Brazilian giants Cruzeiro

FSG have reportedly missed out on purchasing Brazilian giants Cruzeiro, who have instead been bought by the legendary Ronaldo.

Media reports in South America claimed the Boston-based group had made a 'proposal' to acquire the Brazilian club after it became the first in the country to make the switch from a non-profit entity to a corporate one.

However, they have reportedly 'missed out' on the deal to 1994 and 2002 World Cup winner, Ronaldo.

Now 45, Ronaldo began his playing career with Cruzeiro before he made a move to Europe in 1994 to join Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.

The 1996 World player of the year who went on to star for Barcelona, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, is quoted in Brazilian outlet Globo as saying: "I am so happy to have completed this deal.

"I have a lot to give back to Cruzeiro and I want to take the club back to where they deserve to be.

"We have a lot of work ahead of us.

"I ask the fans to reconnect to the club, go to the stadium, because we are going to need a lot of strength and unity.

"We have a lot of work and ambition to make Cruzeiro great again. We have nothing to celebrate yet, but we have a lot of ambition."
