Ronaldinho has clearly been enjoying himself this summer

Portly playmaker waddles around Brazil


Perhaps missing out on the World Cup was a blessing in disguise for Ronaldinho. While his mates trudge home in disgrace, the man they call Gaucho has been having a whale of time (sponsored by pies and ale, from the looks of things) letting it all hang out on Brazil’s Barra de Tijuca beach.

Incidentally, the tail-end of Ronaldinho’s career can be completely summed up by the look on that kid’s face.

    Five years time, that’ll be kaka with the double chins, 2020 Robinho with the guts hanging over his jeans. It’s one of the many injustices of life in Brazil – their stars just love eating more than life itself. Nyom nyom!

    That’s funny, the English National Team sure did look pretty fit. Fat Dinho would’ve made a difference for that sorry squad. And Brazil for that matter.

    Forgive him for going on vacation!

    Media is getting sad nowadays, guess you guys have nothing better to write about now that your national team was embarrassed on the world stage.

    And that “Fat Ronaldo” you speak about just happens to be one of the greatest strikers of all-time.

    I may be fat but im the best striker in the world for this century for sure folks… I could do anything to defenders, sometimes i used to dribble twice the same defender to give him an extra chance to stop me…

    Dunga make a big mistake by not including Dinho, Ronaldo and Adrinho in the Brazil World Cup squad, and because of that they were knock out of the competition by the Netherlands which have never happen before in History. Defiantly 2014 will be the time for Brazil to shine again.

    The absence of Dinho brings the down fall of Brazil.
