Inter Milan striker Ronaldo arrived in Palma yesterday afternoon boosted by the knowledge that Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari wants him to return to international action against Saudi Arabia on February 6. Ronaldo, who last played for Brazil more than two years ago in October of 1999 due to a number of career-threatening injuries, is hoping Inter's four day training camp on the island will be one more step on the road to full recovery. The former World Player of the Year has struggled to return to one-hundred percent fitness after rupturing knee ligaments for a second time and straining a thigh three weeks ago. Despite the recent set-backs Ronaldo was upbeat about his current condition and about coming to the island. “I am really happy to be able to live a new daily life with the rest of the squad,” Ronaldo told yesterday's edition of the Corriere Dello Sport newspaper. “I'm available for the coach with Inter now at the top of the table.”
