⬇ How Ronaldo Influenced My Madrid Switch Decision – Rudiger
Real Madrid signing Toni Rudiger has revealed that he was delighted to have spoken with former Brazilian star, Ronaldo Nazario after joining the Spanish side.
Recall that Ronaldo is the owner of Real Valladolid but retains close ties to Real Madrid.
Former Chelsea defender Rudiger said, “Ronaldo played in the 2002 final against Germany sporting a very distinctive haircut. When we were kids playing football in the street, Ronaldo was our idol. When I signed, I spoke to him on a video call. I was excited and very nervous at the same time.
