Ronaldinho's furious reaction to being nutmegged by TikToker, he didn't like it one bit

The legendary Ronaldinho was furious after being on the receiving end of an unexpected nutmeg by a TikToker.

The 2005 Ballon d'Or winner is widely viewed as one of the most entertaining players ever to play the game, always bringing a smile to people's faces.


Blessed with incredible technical ability, 'R10' played with such swagger and very much enjoyed rising his opponents with deft bits of skill.

He loved a nutmeg - whether it was playing for Brazil, Barcelona, in the warm-up or in a futsal game.

But the 42-year-old experienced the utter humiliation himself when Ferjani Safi rolled the ball through his legs. Ronaldinho was being shown around and was not expecting it when he walked past.

In response, he kicked the ball away with what appeared to be a little bit of low-key aggression when it was in the possession of a second freestyler.

The video has gone viral on TikTok, with a whopping 18.6 million views. Safi has rubbed salt in the wounds by changing his bio on the platform to "I NUTMEGGED @ronaldinho".

Safi has a knack for nutmegging people in public all around the world, with police officers even among his many victims.

But it seems as though professionals don't like been given a taste of their own medicine.

In June, Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne was seething after being 'megged' by a freestyler in less than 30 seconds.

De Bruyne did an activity with freestyler and street panna player Martijn Debbaut at his KDB Cup event.


Debbaut, who has 371,000 followers on TikTok, made it his mission to complete a panna on one of the very best players in the world and succeeded.

The former Chelsea midfielder tried extremely hard to keep his legs close but eventually a half rabona flick transitioned in a glorious nutmeg that left De Bruyne stunned.

He did shake hands but it was quite apparent that the 31-year-old wasn't best pleased.
