    • I agree and despite the fact that his goals were not much, the wonders he did with the ball will forever be remembered. Legendary Ronaldinho

  1. Ronaldinho was a player with superb moves and decisions. He was the only player that dribbled just by the flaunting of his hair and boom you’re on the missing list of players on the field, made the grasses greener because his touches were unimaginable. I can say he is my favorite player of all time.
