Florida - Brazilian star Ronaldo says he will attempt to make a playing comeback this spring with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers of the second-tier North American Soccer League.
The world player of the year in 1996, 1997 and 2002, Ronaldo is now 38 and hasn't played since February 2011 with Brazil's Corinthians. He spoke at a news conference Wednesday called to announce he has become a part-owner of the Strikers.
Ronaldo said his return to the game would help the league and football in America.
Asked whether he would play, Ronaldo responded in English and said "that is not easy."
But he later added: "I will try."
