Ronaldinho may be 34, a little out of shape, way past his best and enjoys partying more than training, but the Brazil legend showed at the weekend that he still has an incredible eye for a pass.
After leaving Atletico Mineiro this summer, the former Barcelona and AC Milan star decided his future lay in Mexico, where he signed a contract with Liga MX club Queretaro.
Still got it
Fitness issues have meant he has made something of a slow start to his time there and he missed a penalty last week, videos of which went viral and must have been rather embarrassing for him.
Ronaldinho may be hoping his latest contribution will do something similar, because it was certainly worth getting excited about – watch it below…
Ronaldinho also scored his first goal for his new club in what was a routine 4-1 victory over Chivas de Guadalajara, thanks mainly to the sending off of former Fulham defender Carlos Salcido.
Salcido was shown his marching orders for a foul in the box after only four minutes and Ronaldinho stepped up to convert the spot kick. However, that was nothing on the pass he made to release Camilo Sanvezzo in the 70th minute.
All of 30 yards out, the World Cup winner spotted a gap and caressed a perfectly timed pass to cut open the Guadalajara defence and leave his compatriot Sanvezzo needing only a single touch to finish off and make it 2-0.
It really was a beautiful assist – what did you think of it? Leave a comment below to let us know…
