The former AC Milan legendary coach, Fabio Capello, spoke to the microphones of A Bola, and among the topics he discussed is how the Rossoneri management signed Ronaldo:
“I remember that Silvio Berlusconi called me to ask how Ronaldo was doing . I told him that he didn’t even train and that he was very fond of parties and women, so hiring him would be a mistake. The next day I saw the headline of the newspaper: “Ronaldo in Milan”. It was very funny.”
Il Phenomeno had a rough time with injuries and even with AC Milan, but that did not stop him from entertaining the fans in the few times he was fit. He appeared in 20 Serie A games and scored 9 goals, including a goal in the derby della Madonnina.
