9781840189643: Ronaldo: The Journey of a Genius

The first in-depth biography of the colourful Brazilian soccer star — one of the most famous and iconic sportsmen of the last decade.

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 how Ronaldo made his way back to the top of the football world following a horrific knee injury in 1998 which threatened to prematurely end his playing career.

After making a remarkable recovery, Ronaldo has since returned to his prolific goal-scoring ways for his team, Real Madrid, making him Spain’s leading scorer in 2003. Ronaldo 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 three times, 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 player 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 field 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 Spanish model Daniela Cicarelli.
