Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: In a press conference about the Confederation Cup, Ronaldo renounced his Brazilian heritage in two short sentences. He said, amidst protests against the international events being hosted by Brazil that “A World Cup isn’t made with hospitals, my friend. It’s made with stadiums”. He even shook his head in disbelief, as if Brazil’s population seemed too dumb to understand that simple fact.

Edit: Ronaldo’s statements were made a couple of years ago, not last week. The author still believes this is relevant to the protests.
