Video: Ronaldinho pulls off outrageous training ground goal

Football News

Ronaldinho has always had a touch of genius about him - something he seemingly has retained despite his advancing years.

During his illustrious career the Brazilian superstar scored more than his fair share of brilliant goals, but perhaps none more so than his sensational overhead-kick goal against Villarreal while playing for Barcelona in 2006.

Then, he controlled the ball on his chest before pulling off an inch-perfect overhead-kick in front of a disbelieving crowd.

Some seven years later, he's at it again. 

Now with Atletico Mineiro, Ronaldinho's career is enjoying something of an Indian summer in his home country - and he's got the skills to show it.

Enjoying a kick-around with his team-mates in training, the ball is flicked into his path at chest height. 

Instinctively, the two-time Ballon d’Or winner controls it and whips a brilliant over-head kick past the goalkeeper and in off the crossbar before most people can blink. The Samba star still has the skills to pay the bills.
