Ronaldinho pulls sneaky nutmeg on defender

Published 9 Comments

Ronaldinho is constantly devising new ways of bamboozling opposition defenders and GMF think he’s done it again.

In Atletico Mineiro’s dramatic Copa Libertadores quarter-final win over Mexican side Tijuana last night, the Brazilian magician actually managed to dummy a dummy to nutmeg a defender.

Confronted with two defenders on the left of the opposition area Ronaldinho made to pull off his trademark elastic/flip flap dribble.

GMF accepts that many will question whether Ronaldinho actually intended this filthy nutmeg and GMF admits it had the same thought.

However, GMF’s next thought was “it’s Ronaldinho”, so the doubts were dispelled.
