Mumbai awaits its monsoon date with Ronaldinho


Former FIFA World Player of the Year Ronaldinho arrives in India on Friday. He will be coming to India after ending his recent tour in Pakistan. The star player will be in Mumbai to explore his future with Premier Futsal, a variation of football played indoors.

Ronaldinho was forced to quit Premier Futsal last year after just two matches. He had to return to his homeland for the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro as he was chosen to be the brand ambassador for the event. He left after scoring five goals on his debut for the Goa franchise.

The Ballon d’or winner is expected to be in Mumbai to make an announcement regarding Premier Futsal. “My association with Premier Futsal has been a fruitful one. It was a great experience to be in India and play in front of local crowds last year and I look forward to another warm welcome from this sports loving country,” Ronaldinho has said.

Ronaldinho joined the likes of Premier Futsal president and Portuguese legend Luis Figo, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Hernan Crespo and Cafu to enhance the star value of Premier Futsal.

However, the 37-year-old former Barcelona star had to withdraw from the event when he was getting in his groove. Ronaldinho, who retired from professional football after a stint with Brazilian club Fluminense in 2015, showed he lost none of his skills and wowed the crowd in the inaugural Premier Futsal event in India.

Premier Futsal is the world’s largest futsal promotions company bringing football legends, futsal superstars and home-grown talent on one platform.
