There may never have been a player who made the game as enjoyable as Ronaldinho, in part because he played and it was a game. “I love the ball,” he said.

One coach, he recalled, told him to change, insisting that he would never make it as a footballer, but he was wrong. It was because he played, because he enjoyed it, that he succeeded. “He changed our history,” Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez said.

With his soccer career ending at age 37, Ronaldinho’s former teams and current and former players used social media to send their thanks and best wishes to Ronaldinho. He was the 2004 and 2005 FIFA World Player of the Year.

He did things you’d never witnessed before, skills most never imagined let alone replicated, and that emotion remained. His feet are so fast he can touch the ball four times in half a second.

The legend will definitely be missed by the former clubs and national team Brazil as he gave them so much to remember.
