Why I Slammed Brazil’s Copa America Squad –Ronaldinho

Ronaldinho has explained why he criticised the Brazil squad that will feature at this year’s Copa America.

In an Instagram post, Ronaldinho described the Copa America-bound squad as the worst in recent times.

“This is a sad moment for those who love Brazilian soccer. It’s getting hard to find the spirit to watch the games. This is perhaps one of the worst teams in recent years, it has no respectable leaders, only average players for the majority.

“I’ve been following football since I was a kid, long before I thought about becoming a player, and I’ve never seen a situation as bad as this. Lack of love for the shirt, lack of grit and the most important of all: football.”

His comments did not go down well with Barcelona winger Raphinha who described it as shocking.

Ronaldinho has now explained why he decided to criticise the squad heading for the Copa America.

“I said that to get a reaction from everyone. I’m going to support Brazil like never before.

“Brazil needs this support, the young players have a lot of talent and are in need of support from Brazilian people. It’s Copa America now and we can come back with a trophy.

“I teamed up with Rexona to support Brazil, and we will create this massive chain of support for Brazil.”
