The former Barcelona star has been without a club since leaving Fluminense in 2015, but had been searching for a club until his brother and agent, Roberto Assis, made the announcement.
@ronaldinho que honra fazer parte da sua história. Sempre vou me lembrar da sua alegria em campo, você deixou um legado que dificilmente será batido no futebol ARTE... Obrigado por tudo que fez pelos amantes do FUTEBOL.
Having won the World Cup with Brazil and inspired the Blaugrana to two LaLiga titles and a Champions League crown, Ronaldinho won the World Player of the Year award in 2004 and 2005, as well as the Ballon d’Or.
But he goes down as a legend mainly because of the enjoyment he brought to the game of football, also taking in spells at Gremio, PSG, AC Milan, Atletico Mineiro, Queretaro and Flamengo.
Neymar said: “Thank you for footballl, we will always remember your joy on the pitch. This will be your legacy!”
