Ronaldinho dazzles in training

Ronaldinho has still got it. The two-time World Player of the Year showed in training that he still has the skills that made him famous all those years ago. During a recent training session with his latest club, Atlético Mineiro, the Brazilian forward performed an inch perfect over head kick, first setting it up with a chest bump then smashing the ball into the net off the crossbar, with the goalkeeper left helpless.

The former Barca star recently caused controversy back home in Brazil when he sued  his then club Flamengo claiming lack of payment for four months and cancelled his contract with the club. To make matters worse, he then promptly (4 days later) signed on with Atlético Mineiro which didn’t go down well with the Flamengo board, management team and fans.

Showcasing he still has what it takes to compete at this level, the Atlético Mineiro fans will be delighted that he decided to do so and will be hoping to see him re-enact the overhead kick time and time again on the pitch when it really matters.
