“It’s strange to say this, but many Brazilians don’t support Brazil. It happens sometimes. If you see Ronaldo walking around here, you will say ‘wow’, he has something different here.

He feels politics at home may cloud people’s judgement of the football star given that he supported Jair Bolshonaro in the recent Brazilian presidential election, which he lost to Lula.

“Maybe it’s because of politics, but Brazilians sometimes don’t recognise our talents.”
