Ronaldinho was some baller back in the day. There was nothing quite like the sight of the long-haired Brazilian in full flow, and his peak years at Barcelona brought more enjoyment to fans than perhaps any other football in the modern era.
There was something so encapsulating him in his pomp. Maybe in the was the stepovers, the mad flicks and tricks, the outrageous goals, or perhaps the fact that he played with a smile on his face. All we know is that it was pure magic.
Having been the best player in the world in the mid noughties, his career would fade badly over a short period of time. Much of that was down to his lifestyle off the pitch, where he was hardly the model professional.
Despite this, we knew the talent was still there. Even though he last played professionally in 2015, he provided us with a moment of magic this week.
Ronaldinho was taking part in a charity match in Colombia earlier this week, where he would produce a stunning assist. The Brazilian took out seven players with an outrageous no-look pass. Take a look at this.
Ronaldinho’s no-look assist early this morning vs Atletico Nacional is the best thing today! 😱😂🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/T4kU5fHqvD

Savage stuff. We reckon he could still do a job on a few teams.
