Kaka has called for Brazilians to respect Ronaldo more, insisting the striker has more respect in other countries than he does in his own.
Despite winning the World Cup twice during his international career, Ronaldo does not get the respect he deserves according to former teammate Kaka.

Speaking on BeIN Sports, Kaka said: “If you see Ronaldo walking around here, you’ll be like: “Wow, he has something different here. In Brazil, he’s just a fat man walking down the street.”
”Of course, many Brazilians love Ronaldo, I love Ronaldo, but the way he is respected in Brazil and abroad is different, I see more respect for him outside the country than there.’
It is sad to think that such a talented player, who won two World Cups and scored 62 goals for his country, does not get the respect that he clearly deserves.
