Barcelona Legend Ronaldinho axed by Mexican side Queretaro
Former Barcelona star Ronaldinho has been axed by Mexican team Queretaro after underperforming for the team and reports of over excessive partying. "Robberdinho” is what the fans have dubbed him, for being self-absorbed, and inconsiderate about the club.
The 35-year-old signed for the club in September, but was only a shadow of the man who brought Barcelona to life. He won two World Player of the Year awards during his spell at Camp Nou.
He only injured his reputation with the fans after missing a penalty on his debut. He was dropped for Sunday’s game against Toluca by the coach Victor Manuel Vucetich after reportedly missing training that week.
The Mexican team is second from the last in the league with only eight points from 10 games.
"They (the fans) are calling him 'Robberdinho' and it is undeniable the Brazilian star's time in Mexican football has left a lot to be desired where it matters most: on the field," said the Estadio newspaper.
"The world champion has not dropped his party lifestyle in the land of the Aztecs."
The dribbling master was always known for his night life activities, but it seems that Queretaro do not have the patience to deal with the Brazilian. Reports from an unidentified executive stated that the club had no intention to extend Ronaldinho’s contract.
