“I want to be the part of the World Cup. It will be the biggest moment in my life and for many in Brazil,” said Ronaldinho who was in Pune to announce his debut venture in collaboration with Bala Entertainment for an animation flick titled R-10.

The 32-year-old who, who has never plied his trade in the Premier League, was linked in the past with Blackburn Rovers (now owned by Venkys). However, the move never saw the light of the day. Despite having signed an extension with his current club for a year, he didn’t rule out playing in the EPL. “ I am very much committed to Athletico Mineiro, but I am close to the offer to moving to Blackburn in the future.”
