In our previous article, we highlighted three things you might have not known about Ngolo Kante. Today, our focus is on legendary Ronaldinho. Known for his flair, skills, and off the ball movement, Ronaldinho was loved by all. But let’s take a quick look at three things you might have not known about him;

1- Started With Futsal and Beach Soccer. Yes! Ronaldinho started as a futsal and beach soccer player. Right after the death of his father at 8, he committed to Futsal and Beach Soccer - that’s how he developed his legendary techniques and skills. But along the line, he changed and signed for Gremio and the rest the say is History.

2- His real name is Ronaldo. Ronaldinho isn’t his real name, he’s actually called Ronaldo. I’m also suprised, but you might wonder how he got the Ronaldinho. Well, when he joined Gremio’s youth team, he was nicknamed Ronaldinho - which means little Ronaldo. But as the Ronaldinho was preferred, he stuck with it.

3- The Ovation at Bernabeu. Before Ronaldinho, the recent Barca player to applauded by Madrid fans was a certain Maradona. Then came Ronaldinho, for his out of the world performance in an El Classico game, he got applauded. Since then only Andres Iniesta has been given the street name. Considering the fierce rivalry between Barca and Madrid, it’s quite an achievement being applauded by any of the opponent fans.
