Ronaldinho Set To Retire From Professional Football (Read Why)


Ronaldinho has revealed that he will retire from professional football soon, after 18 years of playing in South America and Europe.

The former Brazil, Barcelona and AC Milan forward, is one of the few players to have won both the Champions League and Copa Libertadores. He also won the World Cup in 2002.

However, he has been struggling since he left Atletico Mineiro in 2014 and now admits the end is near.

“I am an old man now, I am 36,” he told reporters at a press conference in New York.

“I am no longer 26 like I once was, and I am looking at what I can do to mark an end to my career. The plan is to play one more year.”

Ronaldo also hinted at going into music, when he eventually hangs up his boots.

“I am immersed in new projects, related to music and football which are, as you know, my two passions,” he said.

“I am looking at new things that I have always liked and we will see what we will do this year.”
