Kaka: In Brazil, Ronaldo is just a FAT MAN walking down the street

Former Real Madrid and AC Milan star Kaka says Brazil fans at home would regard Ronaldo Nazario "as just fat man walking down the street".

Kaka was speaking from Qatar about Brazil's support of their national team.

Kaka declared: 'It is strange to say this, but many Brazilians do not support Brazil. It happens sometimes. If you see Ronaldo walking around here, you'll say 'wow', he's got something different here.

"In Brazil, he is just a fat man walking down the street.

“Right now, a lot of people in Brazil are talking about Neymar, but in a negative way. Maybe it's because of politics, but Brazilians sometimes don't recognise our talents."

Asked if Ronaldo is not valued as much by Brazilians as he is in the rest of the world, Kaká replied: "Of course many Brazilians love Ronaldo, I love Ronaldo, but the way they respect him in Brazil and abroad is different, I see him more respected outside the country than there."
