RONALDO is known as one of the most clinical goalscorers in football history.
But today he will be in the boardroom to welcome Real Madrid to his new club, Valladolid.
The Brazil legend had been under the weather recently, after being rushed to hospital with pneumonia in August but is now fighting fit again.
How old is Ronaldo and who did he play for?
The 41-year-old is widely regarded as one the best strikers to ever grace the pitch.
After kicking off his career with Cruzeiro, he moved to PSV Eindhoven and then onto Barcelona into 1996.
Just one year later he joined Inter Milan, where he spent four years before joining Real Madrid.
He went on to play for A.C. Milan and Corinthians before he decided to hang up his boots for good.
His international career was equally impressive and he won two World Cup titles with Brazil.
Ronaldo netted 62 goals for his country in 98 games, which makes him second in the all-time top scorer list.
Does Ronaldo own Valladolid?
Ronaldo owns a 51 per cent stake in Valladolid, having bought the share from club president Carlos Suarez in September 2018.
And he said in December the same year: “I was looking for something to do for two years.
“I looked for a team to buy in Spain and England, and Valladolid was like a gift.
“Not only is it a club with 90 years of history behind it, it’s a city with 300,000 inhabitants and is a place that breathes football and all this means it has huge potential.
“To be able to inspire people is better than to score a hat-trick against Barcelona. I found exactly what I wanted and I have got a lot to give them too.”
Why did Ronaldo retire?
The Brazilian star was forced to retire prematurely after suffering with hypothyroidism.
Speaking at a press conference in 2011, he said: “I’ve lost the struggle against my body.

“The ones who are close to me know the truth: I can’t go up stairs without feeling.
“I gave my life to football and made incredibly sacrifices. I don’t regret anything.”
Ronaldo went on to explain why he suffered with weight issues throughout his career.
“Four years ago in Milan I found out that I was suffering from a problem that is called hypothyroidism, a complaint which slows your metabolism,
“To control it I would have to take medication which is considered illegal in football.
“A lot of people feel bad about their comments on my weight: I just wanted to explain that, now that I have reached the end.”
Since he decided to hang up his boots, he has worked as a United Nations Development Programme Goodwill Amabassador.
