Ronaldinho Profile
March 21, 1980

Ronaldinho is a Brazilian football player who plays for the Spanish club FC Barcelona and the Brazil national team. He is widely considered to be one of the best players of his generation.

He was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 21 March 1980. His father, João, was a shipyard worker and his mother, Miguelina, was a cleaner. He has an older brother, Roberto Assis, who is also a footballer and has played for clubs such as Grêmio and São Paulo.

Ronaldinho started playing football at an early age and was soon snapped up by local club Grêmio. He made his professional debut for Grêmio in 1998 and went on to win the Campeonato Gaúcho that year.

His childhood and early career

Ronaldinho was named after former US president Ronald Reagan, who was in office at the time of his birth. His father, João de Assis Moreira, was a shipyard worker and footballer for the local club Esporte Clube Cruzeiro (not to be confused with the more famous CR Vasco da Gama). His mother, Miguelina Elói Assis dos Santos, was a housewife. He has an older brother, Roberto Assis; he also has a sister, Deisy.

Ronaldinho grew up in the favella of Edson Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pelé. He developed an interest in futebol at the age of four when his mother took him to a local club. After failing to impress there, he moved on to another club where a youth coach, Jair Tadeu da Silva, noticed him.

His time at Barcelona

Ronaldinho's time at Barcelona was a golden era for the club. He helped lead them to two La Liga titles and a Champions League trophy. His play was exciting and skillful, and he quickly became a fan favorite. He also endeared himself to the fans with his off-the-field antics, such as his famous "shoe trick" celebration. In 2005, he was named FIFA World Player of the Year, cementing his legacy as one of Barcelona's all-time greats.

In 2007, Ronaldinho moved to A.C. Milan on a $20 million transfer. His time at Milan was not as successful as his time at Barcelona, and he spent much of his time on the bench. In 2010, he returned to Brazil to play for Flamengo. He played there until 2012 and then briefly moved to Atlético Mineiro before ending his career in Mexico's Liga MX with Queretaro FC.

His time in Milan

In 2003, Ronaldinho joined FC Barcelona for a transfer fee of €30 million. He signed a five-year contract with the club and helped lead the team to victory in the 2004–05 UEFA Champions League with two goals in the final. In 2005, he was awarded both the FIFA World Player of the Year and the Ballon d'Or. After scoring over 100 goals for Barcelona, Ronaldinho left the club in 2008 to join Italian side A.C. Milan. He spent two seasons with Milan, winning the Serie A title in 2010–11 before returning to Brazil to play for Flamengo.

His teams and activities

Ronaldinho is a Brazilian football player who also played for the Mexican club Querétaro. He is also the ambassador for the Spanish club Barcelona.

In 2013, he was named a FIFA Ballon d'Or Laureate, which is given to a player who has shown exceptional skill and talent on the field.

During his time with Barcelona, Ronaldinho helped the team win two La Liga titles and the UEFA Champions League. He was also named FIFA World Player of the Year in 2004 and 2005. When he left Barcelona in 2008, he moved to Milan where he spent three seasons before returning to Brazil to play for Flamengo. After a brief spell with Atlético Mineiro, Ronaldinho once again returned to Europe to play for Queretaro in Mexico.

Conclusion: his legacy

Ronaldinho's career spanned two decades, during which he became one of the most decorated footballers in history. He was a member of Brazil's 2002 World Cup-winning team and was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 2004 and 2005. He also won the Champions League with Barcelona in 2006.

Ronaldinho will be remembered as one of the greatest footballers of his generation. His technique, flair, and ability to entertain made him a joy to watch, and he will be sorely missed by fans around the world.
