Ronaldinho: "I was 48 hours from joining Man United... and then Sandro Rosell called"


This wide-ranging career reflective was published in 2014, since when 'Dinho has left Atletico Mineiro, spent a season with Mexico's Queretaro and an unhappy two-and-a-half months with Fluminense. FourFourTwo has interviewed him again since.
