Oh the media monkeys and their junket junkies will invite you to their plastic pantomime. Throw their invites away.

Ronaldo Finished in Europe

Ronaldo, nearly recovered from a horrific knee injury for A.C. Milan eight months ago, will return to Brazil, likely to play for Flamengo, where he has been training.

“If everything is okay, I want to stay,” Ronaldo said.  “I’ve been in Europe for 16 years.  Flamengo are my favorite, but I don’t want to play there as a favor.  I want to deserve to play there.”

Ronaldo will reject an offer to join former teammate Claude Makelele in early retirement at PSG.  He had stated unilateral interest in joining Man City.

The Brazilian has played in Europe since signing for PSV Eindhoven in 1994.  He also played for Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and A.C. Milan.

He isn’t healthy.  His body would likely self-destruct after 15-20 games.  But, he scored goals when healthy at Milan.  Costing nothing, it’s hard to believe he didn’t get a better offer in Europe.

Pauleta Not Coming to MLS

Portuguese striker Pauleta rejected an opportunity to play in MLS.

The 35-year-old, currently without a club, was twice Ligue 1 player of the season and three times top scorer, playing for both Bordeaux and PSG.  He’s also the top all-time scorer for the Portuguese National Team with 47 goals in 88 appearances.

Pauleta was in the United States for a fundraising tour, but he spurned offers from the New England Revolution and New York Red Bulls, because they didn’t offer enough money.

He now claims to be “almost 100% retired.”
