Ronaldo R9 has been out of action since February, and hopes to return in January - if he can find a club according to his doctor.

The 32-year-old's physiotherapist Bruno Mazzioti told Radio Brasil that the player hopes to train next week with Flamengo.

"He'll train with Flamengo. Then his idea is to return to action in January 2009 although it remains to see which club he will play for," said Mazzioti.

Ronaldo R9 was released by Ac milan after it was considered that he was more of a liability, what with his injuries and apparent lack of fitness back in July this year.

Since then however, Ronaldo R9 has been started the business-end of his rehabilitation, and training with a view to gaining his full fitness once more.

In the summer, Man City have been linked with a move for Ronaldo R9 - although this is something Man City have denied.

(Next week at we will start a new theme to see the clubs in which Ronaldo R9 has been linked with - and we are looking for your opinions and thoughts!)

The former world player of the year recently took part in a charity match, but only lasted 22 minutes before being subsituted, blaming it on the exhaustive regime he was following to return to action.

Well whatever the case is, things seem to be moving now in terms of Ronaldo nazario de lima returning to action, with hopes of move, maybe to premier league, and inevitably, thoughts of the world cup 2010 in South Africa will be a distant, but glimmering hope.

"We always had a good relationship and while I think that what Ronaldo did was not right, I am never going to give up our friendship for that," said Adriano to

"He is Ronaldo and he is a big name. If that had happened to another person, nobody would talk about it.

"These are lessons to learn from this incident. I also went through some difficulties and I know how he must feel," Adriano added.

So what can we make of this from Adriano?

Firstly that Ronaldo is now over the worst of this and can now concentrate on getting back to his rehabilitation and looking to gain full fitness. Ronaldo R9 has not had the best of luck with injuries and will need all the support and motivation to come back to anything that was like his best.

Put into context - he is only 31, will be 32 next year and this 2008-2009 season with whichever club will be the defining chapter in Ronaldo r9's career. With Milan looking uncertain to renew or extent his contract which ends in June this year, Flamengo wait in the distant horizon with open arms for Ronaldo and possibly even a shock return in World Cup 2010...

Ronaldo admits he is "sorry and ashamed" over the scandal.

"It was an isolated and stupid act," the three-time FIFA Player of the Year said on Globo's hugely popular "Fantastico" program. "I'm sorry and ashamed."

Ronaldo said he was unaware they were transvestites and is deeply sorry for his actions - Ronaldo was out celebrating Flamengo's victory over rivals Botofogo although retains the fact he was not drunk.

"I feel very ashamed speaking about this matter. It was an isolated act, an act of complete stupidity on my part. I never knew what a transvestite was. I am completely heterosexual.

"My error has created a major problem of global impact. But thank God all the facts are coming to light. I've spoken to my attorney and everything is being investigated and will be proven.

"Certainly this will tarnish my personal life forever. But it will not interfere in my position as ambassador for Unicef. And this will not interfere also in the advertising contracts I have. This is an isolated act that will not happen again."

Ronaldo has made a very big mistake indeed and this will have no bearing on his future career, although has recently broke up with girlfriend Maria after word of his affair broke.

"I made the stupidest mistake ever of my personal life," he said. "Anyone can make a mistake, and I made a big mistake."

Ronaldo Caught up in Transvestite Scandal - Ronaldo R9

Ronaldo R9 Special Feature-

Brasilian star Ronaldo has been caught up in a scandal involving three cross-dressing prosititutes this Monday week.

Ronaldo had allegedly just dropped off his girlfriend at her house when he picked up three girls only to discover that they were in fact transvestites.

One of the people involved, Andreia Albertine, videoed the footballer emerging from the motel on her mobile phone's camera and the video has been posted on video-sharing website Youtube.

From here reports and facts are patchy, with some claims that Ronaldo threatened to hit one of the 'girls' who accused him of asking her to buy him drugs according to local press reports.

Ronaldo has hit back firmly denying he has ever using drugs, and reiterated that he was a victim of extortion.

Technically, under Brasilian Law Ronaldo has done nothing wrong - prostitution is legal - so it seems that although perhaps not morally correct - ronaldo r9 is in fact a victim of crime.

Ronaldo, according to Rio police superintendent Carlos Augusto Nogueira, "reported that Andreia had taken his car documents and demanded 30,000 dollars".

Nogueira added: "Ronaldo admits the facts. He said he just wanted to amuse himself, that's not a crime. To pay to have sexual relations isn't illegal.

Albertino is also accused of taking Ronaldo's documents and threatened to extort the Brasilian star $30,000.

Ronaldo R9 who is currently out with a serious knee injury has also stated he is having psychological problems associated with his injury.

Regardless of any problems, what is clear is that Ronaldo has taken a fine line here by hiring a call girl and this has turned into a PR disaster for a the footballer.

Youtube and Brasilian press have been quick to catch on this story - whilst on the BBC news wesbite - it is the #1 story in the world as of 29/04/08.
