Ronaldinho joins Fluminense

Fluminense have announced that Brazilian icon Ronaldinho is set to call the Maracana home until the end of 2016.

Ronaldinho is set to continue his career with Fluminense, with the 35-year-old signing a contract until the end of 2016.

Having been linked with Angolan club Kabuscorp and Antalyaspor of Turkey, plus the MLS, this year, since it became clear his time at Queretaro in Liga MX was coming to an end, Ronaldinho has instead chosen to go home to Brazil.

Fluminense announced the deal on Saturday, with Ronaldinho hoping to help the Rio de Janeiro-based club win their third Campeonato Brasileiro title in six years.

"It was one of the things that motivated me to return to Brazil, going after a title that still do not have, and also because it is a club that has great players," the attacking midfielder said in a statement.

"It's a very cool project and I am very happy to join these great players."

Fluminense won the Brazilian Serie A in 2010 and 2012, and they sit second in the 2015 standings after 12 rounds - two points adrift of leaders Atletico Mineiro - one of Ronaldinho's former clubs.

Ronaldinho also previously played for Fluminense's archrivals Flamengo.

In one season with Queretaro, Ronaldinho scored eight goals in 25 games, while in his last full season in Brazil - with Mineiro, the veteran struck seven times in 14 matches.

Good Day everyone.
Am here to share my testimony with what our heavenly father did for me and to the life of my family. My name is Melisa Zeldan am from Canada I’m a mother of two daughters and i lost my husband last year 15th of MAY and things where very hard for me and my children so when I was online to seek for a loan and i fall in the hands of fake lenders, i was scam over $5,000USD, all my Husband access where also taken away from us by my husband Brother's,all hope was lost and i and my kids where sleeping in the street, and due to my desperation of getting a loan,I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Mr Damond Stefan that lend me an unsecured loan of $55,000USD under 28 hours without any stress or delay. If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via ( ) I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders. And I don’t wish even my enemy to pass through such hell that I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent online lenders,i will also want you to help me pass this information to others who are also in need of a loan once you have also receive your loan from Mr Damond Stefan,i pray that God should give him long life to help the needed one's. God bless him forever for his good work...
