The 34-year-old three-times world player of the year has a contract with Corinthians until the end of 2011 but is bringing his retirement forward following the team's shock early elimination from the Libertadores Cup. Ronaldo told the Estado de Sao Paulo newspaper's website (www.estadao.com.br) his regular injury problems were one of his main reasons for quitting now. 'I can't take it any more,' Ronaldo said. 'I wanted to carry on, but I can't. I plan a move (in a game) but I cannot execute as I wish. The time is up.' -- REUTERS
