Ronaldo Was A Bad Influence - Capello

The Italian coach Fabio Capello named Ronaldo as the best player he has coached, but also the worst influence.
Capello coached the winner of two Ballon d’Or titles (1997 and 2002) at Real Madrid in 2006 before sanctioning the sale of the brilliant but troublesome forward to AC Milan. Speaking at the Globe Soccer Awards, Capello discussed his time at Madrid.


He said: “Ronaldo, the phenomenon, was the greatest player I have ever coached,” the Italian coach said.
“He showed up [for pre-season] in Madrid and was 96kg, so I asked him to get to 88-90 kg. There was nothing I could do. He was a great player, but a negative influence for the group.”
In his career Ronaldo scored 352 goals in 519 appearances. He played for several top clubs including PSV, Barcelona, Inter, Real Madrid and Milan.
