ronaldinho the magician

On March 21 1980 the world's finest player Ronaldo de Assis Moreira was born in the far from salubrious surrounds of Porte Alegre, Brazil.

Later, so as to distinguish himself from another current Brazilian great Ronaldo, he was bestowed the title Ronaldinho, which, whisper it quietly, translates as 'Little Ronaldo'.

To watch Ronaldinho is to watch the supreme master craftsman, an artist who persistently invents new ways of playing the beautiful game. He is a player that leaves not just supporters staggered by the subtlety of his skills but also his peers; a remarkable feat achieved by only the very best.
