Ronaldo set to make long-awaited return

Brazil legend Ronaldo could finally return from injury to make his Corinthians debut in a Copa do Brasil tie on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old striker has been out for more than a year but could feature from the bench against Itumbiara.

Coach 'Mano' Menezes said: "Ronaldo is ready to play 45 minutes and will be on the bench in the Itumbiara match.

"He will maybe play some minutes in the second half depending on how the match goes.

"I make my decisions according to what I think is correct. At the moment, ideally he will make his debut during the match but won't start."

Ronaldo has not played a competitive game since February 13 last year when he suffered a serious knee injury playing for AC Milan.

He was fined for breaking a curfew last week.
