Former Barcelona and Brazilian Star, Ronaldinho to Play for Peruvian Club

Ronaldinho has agreed to play for Peruvian second division club Cienciano, the Brazilian World Cup winner said on Sunday.

Ronaldinho talking to the press on Sunday.

In a short video published on the club’s official Facebook page, the two-time FIFA World Player of the Year winner said: "I’m going to wear the shirt. Soon we are going to be together."

It is understood Ronaldinho will represent the Cusco outfit for one match in a similar deal to one he signed with Las Vegas City, with whom he will play in a one-off friendly against Miami United this month.

Over skilled Ronaldinho in action.

The 36-year-old former Barcelona star has not played competitively since ending a disappointing two-month spell with Brazil’s Fluminense last September.

Last month his brother and agent, Roberto Assis, said the former Barcelona star was likely to join a Chinese or US-based club later this year.

Ronaldinho won many accolades during his time at Barcelona.
