Despite the fact that he played for our arch-rivals, it'd be a cold-hearted madridista indeed who did not, in her heart of hearts, miss good old Ronaldinho a little.

With a tip of our hat to the fine folks at AFR, we see that Ronaldinho, now playing in his homeland for Atlético Mineiro, can still turn on his mesmerizing skills once in a while, after the jump.


And for good measure, here's a classic from the archives - Ronaldinho's breathtaking goal against Villarreal in 2006, at the height of his powers.
