Spanish giants Barcelona announced a 10-year deal for legendary former player Ronaldinho to act as an ambassador for the club on Thursday , AFP reports.
The Brazilian , who won the World Player of the Year twice as well as two La Liga titles and the 2005 /06 Champions League with Barca in five years at the Camp Nou, has not played since a short spell at Fluminense came to an end in September 2015.
“ Barcelona and Ronaldinho have reached an agreement so that the Brazilian star will become an ambassador and representative of the club at different events during the next 10 years , ” Barca said in a statement .
Ronaldinho, 36 , will also be part of a Barca legends team that will play exhibition matches across the world .
On top of the trophies and 91 goals he scored in 198 appearances for Barca , Ronaldinho ’ s time in the Catalan capital is fondly remembered for his outrageous array of skills and broad smile with which he often graced the pitch.
His arrival from Paris Saint -Germain in 2003 also heralded a shift in power in Spanish football as he took a teenage Lionel Messi under his wing .
