Real Madrid legend Ronaldo isn't ruling out a playing comeback with Fort Lauderdale Strikers.
The 38-year-old three-times FIFA world player of the year, who last played professionally with Corinthians in 2011, recently became a minority owner in the North American Soccer League's Strikers.
"That is not easy because I love to play, I love soccer, that was all my life my big love. When I retired, I stopped playing because of my body, so much pain and injuries," said the former Inter Milan and Real Madrid forward of the potential of a comeback.
"To play a soccer game you have to be in very good shape. I will try for myself, it's another challenge, I am sure it will help the league, help the team.
"I will train a lot, and if the (coach) needs me, maybe,' he said, adding with a smile that he would like to play if the Strikers were to reach a final.
Former Spain and Real forward Raul recently joined the New York Cosmos, who also play in the NASL, at the age of 37.
