The Time Ronaldinho Ended This Guy's Career During Warm Up

The Time Ronaldinho Ended This Guy's Career During Warm Up

For his brief but memorable time in Barcelona, the great Ronaldinho was, by far, the best player on the planet.

The Brazilian would leave supporters on the edge of their seats, using his speed, skill and ability to produce the unexpected on a regular basis.

It was a rollercoaster of emotions watching this incredibly talented player at the top of his game.

If you didn't watch the man in his prime, go over to YouTube and watch some of his highlights. Trust me.

In one of his most famous moments, which ironically was before kick-off, Ronaldinho smashed the ball into the sky, took it down with ease and casually humiliated his teammate with a Flip-Flap.

Can we just turn back time, steal him from the clutches of Barcelona and throw him back in the fold this season? Just look at this filth.

Ronaldinho constantly produced magic off the pitch, as well, and Nike struck gold when they decided to put Ronaldo de Assis Moreira to work in order to promote their latest pair of Nike Tiempo boots.

What followed is almost three minutes of footage that would prompt debate as to whether it was actually legitimate.

But even if Ronaldinho isn't actually playing 'keepie uppie one-two's' with the crossbar, it doesn't take away from our enjoyment of the video.


The advert became the first video to amass 1 million views on YouTube, which is a monumental achievement considering it was back in 2005 where Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites weren't even a thing.

10 years on, Nike would then re-release the video on their channel to mark its anniversary and the commercial currently sits on over 8 million views.

And only the other day, the Ballon d'Or winner starred in another Nike advert when he was one of many big names to start in the 'Awaken the Phantom' clip.
