Ronaldo De Lima Opens 30 New Soccer Schools

Brazilian football legend Ronaldo de Lima announced on Monday that he will open 30 soccer schools in China.

The former Real Madrid and Barcelona striker believes Chinese football has lots of potential, but guidance and better coaching is needed, and this is his effort in trying to better the game in the Asian country.

At the opening of one of his schools in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the veteran spoke about his soccer school idea in China and is hoping it will have a massive impact.

"Besides the business factor, the major reason for me to open soccer schools in China is because there are lots of soccer fans and players in the country, and Chinese government and civil organisations also focus on soccer development," the Brazilian told Xinhua News Agency.

"I hope my method of soccer training could help develop Chinese soccer.

"I think Chinese soccer has the mass base and determination, but it may still lack the proper concept and training method."

The Chinese Super League reportedly spent about €108 million on attracting players and coaches to their shores last season.  

Do you think Ronaldo's soccer schools will help China produce better platers?
