Ronaldo keen on PSG role

Former Brazil striker Ronaldo has repeated that he could end up working at Paris Saint-Germain in the future.

‘Cavani should stay at PSG’

Ronaldo, 37, spoke last month of a strong connection to the French club, but the former Barcelona and Real Madrid player, who is part of the 2014 World Cup's Local Organising Committee, will not go into coaching.

"No, definitely not," he told Le Parisien. "I don't have the gift to be a coach, in order to teach others. It's also a very physical task. And I certainly don't want to find myself in the same routine that I was in as a player."

For that reason, he says a sporting director role -- "maybe" at PSG, where Leonardo has not yet been replaced following his exit in July -- would suit him better.

He said: "I've a very strong link with Paris and a very strong friendship with the president of the club... We'll see after the World Cup."

As for this summer's tournament, Ronaldo believes that the massive sums invested will bring about positive change rather than lead to further discontent in his homeland.

"I think on the contrary the World Cup will improve a lot of areas of our society," he said. "It will leave us a very positive legacy.

"Seeing all the work that has been done, the population is starting to become aware of that. We have brand new stadiums, renovated airports, new infrastructure. The World Cup will be good for our economy, our society and our image."
