Rio de Janeiro, April 4 (IANS) Ronaldinho has agreed to play for Peruvian second division club Cienciano, the Brazilian World Cup winner has announced.
In a short video published on the club’s official Facebook page on Sunday, 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,” reports Xinhua.
It is understood that 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.
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.
