Ronaldinho

"I learned all about life with a ball at my feet." The words of one of modern football's most absurdly skilful players go some way to explaining how a man so slight of frame could go on to not only conquer world football but have it adore him along the way. During a career spanning 17 years, Ronaldinho Gaúcho charmed Planet Football with a style so unique, so rhythmic and so thrilling that all who saw him play were left with a smile as broad as his own. Because that's how he played: with a grin on his face and a song in his feet. And to the tune of three league titles (two with Barcelona and one with AC Milan), one UEFA Champions League and a FIFA World Cup, Ronaldinho brought success to the biggest teams on the globe. Now that's true samba style.
