"Ronaldo: The Journey of a Genius" encapsulates for the first time the highs and lows of the Brazilian football star's remarkable career to date. Brimming with exclusive interviews and full of revealing new insights into his life and personality, this is the definitive Ronaldo biography. Author James Mosley has been given exclusive access to the footballer's close management and advisers, who have shared with him their experiences with the player over the last ten years. They reveal the inside story of his explosive impact on the world game at Barcelona in 1997, the mysterious events of the World Cup final at France '98, and the horrendous knee injury that threatened to finish his career. After making a remarkable recovery to lift the World Cup in 2002 and win the Golden Boot award, Ronaldo has returned to his prolific goal-scoring ways at Real Madrid. He continues to be a genuine icon of world football, matched only by David Beckham for fame, recognition, and marketability. He has been named FIFA World Player of the Year thrice and European Player of the Year twice, and is close to breaking the record for scoring the most international goals. "Ronaldo: The Journey of a Genius" reveals how the star rose from humble beginnings in Rio de Janeiro to become a football phenomenon. His wealth has been massively boosted by countless advertising and sponsorship deals, which have in turn enhanced his status as an idol around the world. This exhaustive biography also takes us off the pitch to unearth aspects of Ronaldo's private life, including the circumstances behind the failure of his first marriage, and his long-awaited 'second marriage' to Brazilian model Daniella Cicarelli.Über den Autor:
