Ronaldinho Makes A Mockery Of Jesper Blomqvist As Man Utd Legends Win At Nou Camp

Any time you book Ronaldinho for a 'Legends' match, you know people are going to turn up.

A living personification of 'Samba Soccer', since hanging up his boots as a professional the former Barca star has been putting smiles on faces by rocking up to charity matches and having a bit of fun, and that continued on Friday night as Barcelona hosted a Man Utd legends side at the Nou Camp.

Ronaldinho was part of a star studded Barca team, one that looked far superior to that of Man Utd, but it was the visitors who got an early goal through Jesper Blomqvist to take the lead.

The highlight of the match, however, was when Blomqvist made the fatal error of trying to close Ronaldinho down. The Brazilian proceeded to rip the piss out of the 1999 Champions League winner, before a nutmeg that brought the Nou Camp crowd to it's feet.

What a showman, he's still got that bit of magic in his boots.

Blomqvist's goal was comically bad, but it was enough to give Man Utd Legends a lead to hold on to.


The United side looked solid at the back all night, and went on to double the lead through Karel Poborsky.


Again, it wasn't the greatest goal you'll ever see.

The third goal, was outstanding, and it came from Dwight Yorke as he curled a beauty into the top corner.

The scoring was not finished there, as Barca finally gave the home crowd something other than a nutmeg to think about through Dehu.


He wasn't exactly nervous about the finish...

A cracking performance from the Man Utd legends, proving that charity matches are not played on paper, and it would have been a great experience for the likes of Lee Martin and Danny Webber playing at the Nou Camp for the first time.

Plus the locals got to see Ronaldinho nutmegging folks, nobody was the loser today.
