Brazilian icon Ronaldo will be coming soon to the screens after signing a deal with streaming giants DAZN where O Fenômeno’s life up to the current date will be documented.
The six-part docu-series, titled ‘El Presidente’, will be launched through 2021 to 2023. The production delves into the playing career of the two-time Ballon d’Or winner and goes behind-the-scenes in his current role as President of Spanish club, Real Valladolid.
DAZN’s cameras zoom in on Ronaldo’s first full season at the helm of the club. Former teammates and greats of the game including Roberto Carlos, Dida, Pep Guardiola, Boudewijn Zenden and Javier Zanetti recall the lows and highs Ronaldo went through on the pitch.
He was the best. Now he’s the boss.
