One of the greats: Football fans react as Brazilian legend Ronaldinho announces his impending retirement from proffessional football [Tweets]Published September 8, 2016
Football fans around the world have taken to social media, after former Brazil, and Barcelona Ronaldinho has revealed he will soon be ending his historic professional football career.
After 18 years starring in both Europe and South America, the 36-year-old has struggled to find a settled club since leaving Atletico Mineiro in 2014, and the Brazilian icon has said, he believes it’s time to call it a day, most likely within the next year.
The flamboyant forward, is one of the few players to boast both Champions League and Copa Libertadores winners medals, and he also lifted the World Cup with Brazil back in 2002, whilst as far as personal accolades go, the Brazilian can boast a Ballon d’Or and two World Player of the Year awards.
Ronaldinho’s immediate career outside of the football pitch, is already established with the Brazilian rejoining Barcelona as a club ambassador, but the legendary footballer, is also looking at a career in music, admitting that it is one of his passions alongside football.
In the aftermath of Ronaldinho’s revelation, football fans have taken to Twitter, to praise and congratulate the Brazilian superstar, on a wonderful career.
Surely one of the greatest of all time.
Take a look at some of the Tweets below.
