Ronaldinho has always pushed the boundaries when it comes to breathtaking skills on the football field and, at the advanced age of 34, the Brazilian legend shows little sign of harnessing his penchant for the spectacular.
The former Barcelona player is currently operating in the Mexican top-flight with Queretaro having left Atletico Mineiro a Copa Liberadores winner and, as demonstrated by his latest dazzling feat, has plenty left in the tank.
It may have not been in competitive action, but this ‘shark attack’ (apparently that’s what it’s called) volley from Ronaldinho is still rather mind-boggling and takes a few watches to fully appreciate what on earth he has just done.
Ronaldinho leaps like the proverbial salmon, or shark on this occasion, to meet the ball at a height above the net and flicks out his right foot to propel it into opposition territory and record a point for his team.
It is move that has a hamstring tweak written all over it but, as far as we’re aware, Ronaldinho came away from it unscathed. He probably made sure to do all of his stretches beforehand - there’s a lesson there for all of us.
- Ronaldinho linked with surprise QPR move
- Ronaldinho provides amazing assist playing for Queretaro
- Ronaldinho inspires yet again where Messi and Ronaldo fail
It would have been interesting if the camera had kept rolling to see if any of Ronaldinho’s pals attempted to repeat his ‘shark attack’. We’re expecting that, from the size of these fellas at least, it would not have gone so well.
