Ronaldinho Could Come Out of Retirement… But Only if He Didn’t Have to Train

Ronaldinho Could Come Out of Retirement… But Only if He Didn’t Have to Train

Ronaldinho closed the curtain on his football career in 2015 – however, he would be willing to return to the field on one condition.

The ex-Barcelona forward won a host of individual honours and secured a Serie A title, two La Liga crowns and a Champions League during his playing days.

However, it all came to a close when Ronaldinho reached a mutual agreement with Fluminense to terminate his contract two years ago.

And while the World Cup winner celebrated his 37th birthday in March, Ronnie would be open to lacing up his boots again… but only for a team that wouldn’t force him to train.

Ed Maylon, Sports Editor for the Independent, confirmed Ronaldinho’s demands via his Twitter account:

Maylon’s Tweet was backed up by Brazilian football expert @BrazilStat:


While Ronaldinho was without question the best footballer on the planet in the early noughties, he struggled with fitness after leaving the Nou Camp for spells at AC Milan, Flamengo and Atlético Mineiro.

Would you be willing to see your club offer a deal to Ronaldinho under these conditions?
