It was another day of training at Toca da Raposa II for the Cruzeiro women’s squad. But Ronaldo Fenômeno, manager of the Celeste SAF, showed up to follow the Cabulosas’ training. From that moment on, the day was different for the athletes and, in particular, for Luana Lima, who has Fenômeno as an idol in football.

– It was an incredible feeling to be able to meet Ronaldo in person. He is a person who has always been an inspiration to me.

The player arrived at Cruzeiro this season and revealed that her choice to wear the number nine shirt was inspired by her idol Ronaldo. Upon meeting the former player, Luana couldn’t contain her tears and became emotional.

– I wear the number nine shirt because I am inspired by him and it was impossible to contain the tears being close to a person I have always admired. My biggest inspiration has always been Ronaldo and, for me, there will never be another like him.

Luana is 33 years old, arrived at Cruzeiro after the end of the playing season last year. His career began in 2016 playing for Foz Cataratas, Paraná, where he played 10 games and scored four goals. Luana Lima is from Paraná, but lived a few years further away from her homeland. He spent two seasons at Espanyol in Spain.

– My career in women’s football began in 2016, when I played for Foz Cataratas. Today, whenever I can, I visit my family, but the most difficult moment was when I went to play in Spain and was away from them for two years. For me it was the most difficult moment because I felt very alone.

Back in Brazil, the striker played for Palmeiras in 2019, and went to Bragantino, where she stayed for four seasons, gaining two accessions with the São Paulo team from the Brasileirão Series A2 to the elite, lifting the trophy on both occasions.

Raposa’s number nine states that he chose to leave Bragantino to go to Cruzeiro for the project and to be able to defend the team commanded by his idol.

– I chose Cruzeiro because of the project they presented to me. For all the structure that the club offers to its athletes and for following the club’s growth within the sport.

“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to play for Ronaldo’s club.”

Luana and Cruzeiro’s teammates enter the field this Friday, against Ferroviária, at 4pm (Brasília time), for the fourth round of the women’s Brasileirão, and ge follows in real time.
