Time to up your bets sports lovers because the phenomenal 'Ronaldinho' is back on the field. Every bookie is going to have to pay attention to gamblers raising their football bets favoring Ronaldo because he's shown that he's still one of the world's best.

The return of Ronaldo to football in Brazil has sparked renewed interest in a player that many members of the press had already written off as a 'has-been'. It's not all about speed and youth, however, as Ronaldo is proving with his return to the game. Voted best player in the world by FIFA in 1996, 1997, and 2002, Ronaldo saved his new team, Corinthians, from two losses in the last week. On Sunday, March 8, the superstar scored his first goal in 2009 already 47 minutes into the second half to tie against long-time rival Palmeiras. On Wednesday, March 11, Ronaldo gave Corinthians its first victory against São Caetano in a state tournament with a kick to the goal at 5:39 into the second half.

The football superstar commented about his talent for goals, "It's not that I know for sure that I'll score a goal when I get the ball inside the penalty area, but that's the place where I have my best notion of time and space. Inside that space is where I dominate, it's where I best position myself."

Comments have already appeared in the media of Ronaldo's desire to play for the Brazilian National team one more time in the World Cup of 2010. While he is the current record holder for goals in World Cup games, having scored 15, the superstar admitted publicly that he believed he had some enemies in the national team's management. "I'm still a long way off from the national team," affirmed Ronaldo. "I'm focused on Corinthians right now. Let's talk about what's happening, not what could happen. I'm not currently in conditions to be invited to the national team."

Ricardo Teixeira, president of the CBF, asserted this week that Ronaldo has no enemies in the Brazilian national team's management. The Brazilian national team played poorly in 2006 even with Ronaldo on the team. Teixeira assured him, however, that if he returned to the form he had in 2002 when Brazil won the World Cup against Germany, that his spot on the team would be certain.
