Former Brazilian striker feels that the recognition he has received world over is thanks to the people's love for the sport

Ronaldinho who was in India last month on a visit for an upcoming film had something really nice to say about the sport he represents.


Speaking in Portuguese with the aid of a translator, the former Brazilian international says he is amazed by the reception he receives from the fans wherever he goes.

For someone who doesn’t need introduction, this was surprising. “I might be sounding modest here but I’m always surprised by the kind of warm reception I receive everywhere I go.

It gives me immense satisfaction to acknowledge people’s love. Our languages differ but we all speak football and that’s what bonds us,” says the 32-year-old footballer.
