Jump To Ronaldinho's Stats
Known as one of the best soccer players in the world Ronaldinho, the Brazilian maestro, continues to confound his opponents on the pitch. His darting, attacking style as a midfielder and striker have pushed the Flamengo star's net worth to $174,360,150. He has been recognized by his peers by winning the FIFA World Player of the Year twice. His future though – like all aging athletes – has slowed down a bit.
Ronaldinho has played for the best soccer clubs in the world. He has played in Germany, in Spain and in Italy. As he continuously outperformed his colleagues, his contract price points continued to rise during 2005, 2006 and 2007, While playing for the Barcelona Football Club, Ronaldinho shared his his teammates his first ever Champions League. As the recipient of the coveted Balloon d'Or the previous year, he reached the peak period in his life.
The aggressive midfielder comes from the Atlantic ocean city in southern Brazil called Porto Alegre. He got noticed as a 13-year-old in a game that ended 23-0. Ronaldinho scored all 23. Even since those early days, the soccer star stays close to his family. His father, Roberto, acts as his business manager and his sister, Deisi, handles his press relations.
If you remember the Tiger Woods trick golf ball video, Nike did a similar deal with Ronaldhino. By using the goal post, his feet, butt, chest and knees, the soccer star does fantastic tricks on the Woods level. The video immediately went viral and Nike knew they had endorsed the right guy.
Although considered on the down side of an athletic career, the veteran Ronaldhino continues to be a menace to his adversaries. Whether or not he plays on the Brazilian National Team during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil will not enhance nor diminish his solid wealth.
