​Brazil legend Ronaldo contemplating buying Championship club

It appears as though Brazilian legend Ronaldo is thinking about getting into the football club ownership game.

Speaking with a local paper, Ronaldo went over the reasons why he is interested in purchasing a club in the Championship, or in the Spanish second division.

"It would be a great honour [being President of the Brazilian football federation], but before that I want to experience running a big club," Ronaldo told Folha de S. Paulo.

"I'm thinking about buying a club in the second division in Spain or England. I want to do something innovative. I think I'm prepared for the challenge."

One of the greatest players of all time, Ronaldo does not have any experience with the managerial or ownership side of football. It is unclear whether he would use his own money to buy a club, or he would be the figurehead for a group of investors.
