Menezes hopes Ronaldinho will inspire Brazil

Brazil coach Mano Menezes hopes Ronaldinho can revitalise his struggling side when the Selecao face Ghana in a friendly in London on Monday.
Menezes handed Ronaldinho a surprise recall for the fixture at Fulham's Craven Cottage after the former Barcelona and AC Milan forward showed signs of a renaissance late in his career.

His creativity and experience will no doubt rejuvenate a rather poor Brazilian team

Damn Brazil looks bad and right before their world cup, they still got time but idk if ronaldinho is the answer,

KingsCross3908d ago

He for sure isnt the answer. Neymar is coming up, but I doubt Brazil is getting there before 2014.

Argentina look much stronger, and you cant cout out Germany, Holland or Spain. Italy is worth comparing to Brazil... No new Gold generation coming up.

sdtarm3908d ago

yeah true, they should look in younger players, they had an amazing U20 world cup, champions and took most of the awards, maybe ronaldinho could lead the way but menezes should focus on those rising players

He should be part of the Brazilian squad. Lots of Brazilian talent but they also need to have a balance of experience and youth, like Germany and Spain.

the world cup is 2years away and your writing off brazil already?

Anderson83907d ago

should never have been dropped from the 2010 squad.. maybe dunga was still hurt over this

Brazil were never short of young talent going to Europe to early have stopped or postponed their development hope Neymar stays in Brazil for few more seasons
