We all know that Ronaldinho was an incredible player during the peak his career.
The Brazilian is considered one of the finest players of his generation having graced Europe with his incredible skills whilst playing for Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and AC Milan.
But, at the grand old age of 36, it’s fair to say Ronaldinho hasn’t lost it.

Last month, he was embarrassing celebrities and former professionals alike during Soccer Aid at Old Trafford, but he may have just produced a moment of magic that eclipsed anything he did during his playing career.
And no, this wasn’t during some charity event, this was in an actual match.
Ronaldinho was playing in a friendly in Peru for second tier club Cienciano when he pulled off one of the best assists ever. No exaggeration.
The legendary footballer picked up possession and produced an incredible 25-yard no-look pass inside the full-back for his teammate who dinked the ball over the goalkeeper.
After the ball rolled into the net, the camera panned to Ronaldinho who could be seen with a beaming smile clearly delighted with his pass.
Take a look at the ridiculous assist below: (The moment of magic occurs at 5:50)
Not bad, was it?
Ronaldinho hasn’t officially retired having been released from Fluminense last summer. While he obviously isn’t as good as he once was, there’s no underestimating his ability during his heydays.
He spent five seasons at Barcelona, helping them to win two La Ligas and a Champions League trophy. Recently, Lionel Messi was asked to pick between Ronaldinho and current Brazilian teammate Neymar - something he found extremely difficult.
"Ohhhh! That's very difficult! I am happy to have played with both of them. It is a tough thing to happen and I have been fortunate to have played with each of them, so it is very difficult to choose just one,” he said.
Can Neymar produce a 25-yard no-look assist? We think not.
