Ronaldinho floored by a ball to the face

These days we are accustomed to seeing videos of Brazil superstar Ronaldinho pulling off some outrageous skill, but it’s not all rosy for the Atletico Mineiro man.

In their Copa Libertadores quarter-final first leg 2-2 draw against Mexican side Tijuana last night, Ronaldinho got a nasty shock after an unlucky deflection.

The former Barcelona star was unfortunately placed when a Tijuana defender’s clearance ricocheted off one of Ronaldinho’s teammates and crashed into his face.

It all looks quite funny until the two-time player of the year stays down a little too long and requires treatment from the Galo medical staff.

Ronaldinho was, as expected, fine in the end, though he may have to sport a bruise for a few days.

GMF also doubts whether a ball to the face would have much of a ruining effect on the 33-year-old’s looks.

Thanks to 101GreatGoals for getting there first with the video.
