Ronaldinho to…Blackburn. Of Course!By: Rob | January 2nd, 2011
Ronaldinho-Brasil.jpgRonaldinho’s brother and agent has confirmed that the Brazilian former-genius is in talks with Blackburn (and another, unnamed Premier League club) about a move away from Milan. Apparently Blackburn, who made everyone sit up and take notice when they sacked Sam Allardyce for absolutely no reason (maybe it was because he didn’t want a flairy Brazilian in his squad?) earlier last month, are offering £130,000 a week for The Artist formally known as R10 who was expected to sign for his old club Gremio.
I don’t really have much to say except a sort of incredulous “huh?” noise, but Blackburn’s new owners are proving entertaining to say the least.
I’ve spoken many times on this site about my admiration for Ronaldinho, when he was in his prime, but lest us not forget this was a player who considered himself a bit too good to be arseing around at Man City a couple of years ago.
Also its an excuse to watch this again.
Yeah he was quite good.
