Brazil icon Ronaldo bought every Real Valladolid player a PS5 after win and invites stars over to his home to play games

RONALDO once treated his Real Valladolid players to a Playstation 5 after a victory.

The Brazil legend and club president's kind-hearted gesture was revealed by right-back Saidy Janko.

The 25-year-old former Manchester United prospect also told of how Ronaldo invited players over for online gaming.

Janko told that players went to Ronaldo's house "to play a little online against the Juve stars Douglas Costa and Paulo Dybala".

And he added: "Once he just gave us a Playstation 5 after a win.

"He's very sociable, and he'll have a coffee with you from time to time."

Ronaldo brought a 51 per cent stake in the Spanish club in September 2018.

The side are in LaLiga relegation danger this season, sitting fourth from bottom and just a point ahead of Elche.

After buying the club, two-time World Cup winner plans to get involved in training sessions after shedding a few pounds.

Ronaldo said: "I have not come to play and I am not in shape for that.

"I will start training and getting fit so I can train with the boys and contribute a bit in the technical area, always in agreement with the coach."

Having played for some of the wealthiest clubs in European football, Ronaldo is used to state-of-the-art facilities.


But he admitted: "Everything is possible, we do not have the best facilities in the world, but it is about getting the best facilities for our players."

Ronaldo played for both Barcelona and Real Madrid during his glittering career.

The 98-cap Brazil international also had spells at Inter Milan and AC Milan, and was a two-time World Cup winner.
