thumbnail Hello,

Speculation is rife in Brazil that the 64-year-old, who was last year accused of corruption, is poised to resign from his post but the former Real Madrid striker insists otherwise

Ronaldo believes that Ricardo Teixeira will continue as president of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).

Speculation is rife in Brazil that the 64-year-old, who was last year accused of corruption, is poised to resign from his post.

However, Ronaldo, who works alongside Teixeira on the 2014 World Cup Organising Committee (LOC), insists otherwise.

"The president will continue," the former Brazil international is quoted as saying by Globoesporte.

"He was here today [Thursday], we had a meeting and we have already discussed the idea of ​​Bebeto taking up a position on the committee.

"I have not commented on the rumours that are going on. In my opinion, it is a pity if this were to happen because, like it or not, this is the guy who brought the World Cup to Brazil and we owe him a lot."

Ronaldo, who retired from the game last year, accepted a position with the LOC in December.
