Striker to run for Congress

Romario is set to run for a seat in the Brazilian Congress in October’s general election. The former Brazil striker will be a candidate for the Brazilian Socialist Party. Reports suggest that he joined the party last year, but his former managers will testify that he joined the party long before that!

His campaign co-ordinator Marco San said that, if elected, Romario will focus on social issues like health and education and on ways to use sport as a means to social inclusion. Ironic since during his playing days he focused on social issues such as socialising and… well, that’s about it.

OTP can only assume he is ultimately looking to become Minister for Fun and Good Times.
