Ronaldinho’s Atletico Mineiro won the Recopa Sudamericana last night, the South American equivalent of the Super Cup, contested between the Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana.
Ronnie’s Atletico-MG won 5-3 on aggregate against Lanus (Buenos Aires, Argentina), and recorded the celebrations on his phone as the captain lifted the Cup on the pitch.
Ronaldinho selfie-style the video, getting himself into the shot as his teammates celebrated behind him.
Linked with a move away, with Besiktas the most likely destination this could be Ronaldinho’s farewell gift to the fans, judging by his message on Twitter, ‘Galo is always going to be in my heart!’
The years go by, Dinho’s smile remains a constant.
In the end, missing out on the World Cup was a blessing in disguise for Ronaldinho. A trophy won, and no mental scars from a 1-7 beating.
