Ronaldinho: Soccer Sorcerer
If there were any doubts that Ronaldinho is the most exciting player in world football they were dispelled by his virtuoso performances for Barcelona last week.
The 25-year-old Brazilian gave a sublime display to lead Barca to a 3-0 victory over arch-rivals Real Madrid, scoring two solo goals in a display which brought the applauding Bernabeu crowd to their feet in admiration.
Four days later he steered the Catalans to a 3-1 win over Werder Bremen, notching a trademark free kick and providing the assists for the two other goals.
It is therefore no surprise that Ronaldinho completed a sweep of the game's three most important individual awards by being named European Footballer of the Year on Monday.
