28 Best Ronaldinho Quotes and Sayings for Inspiration

Ronaldinho, originally named Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, is a well-known Brazilian ex-footballer famous for his dribbling skills.

Born on March 21, 1980, in Porto Alegre, he faced early tragedy with his father’s accidental death when he was just eight.

Ronaldinho began with futsal, transitioning to professional football with Gremio in 1998.

He later played for several top European clubs, with his peak at FC Barcelona between 2003-2008.


He then joined AC Milan, before returning to Brazil. He played for Flamengo, Atlético Mineiro, Querétaro and Fluminense.

On the international front, he was pivotal in Brazil’s 2002 World Cup win, forming a lethal trio with Ronaldo and Rivaldo.

However, his international form waned over the years. Ronaldinho retired with an impressive 33 goals from 97 international matches.
