Ronaldinho 'Wants To Come Out Of Retirement And Play For Diego Maradona'

Ronaldinho 'Wants To Come Out Of Retirement And Play For Diego Maradona'

Ronaldinho is reportedly weighing up returning to football and linking up with a fellow legend of the game in Diego Maradona, currently in charge of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.

The 2005 Ballon d'Or winner has been out of the game five years after his last stint with Fluminense back in 2015, and has instead spent his team playing in charity games and futsal matches.

But as per the Argentine version of Marca, who cite reports from El Dia, the 40-year old is interested in a return to the professional game and has told Maradona, who is keen to draft him in.

Seeing two of the game's most gifted players and colourful characters working together would be quite something but there is of course a big stumbling block - that being that Ronaldinho is still under house arrest in Paraguay.
