The former FC Barcelona legend, Ronaldinho has left Clube Atlético Mineiro on Monday 28th of July. Ronaldinho left with mutual agreement terms between both sides and is now a free agent. However, he will be joining the Belo Horizonte-based club until December. Roberto de Assis, Ronaldinho’s brother, was asked if the player is considering retirement but replied, “He will play until he’s 42! He will reveal his future destination on Wednesday.”
Carles Puyol is a man of humble origins, and the FC Barcelona legendary captain never forgets where he comes from. The recently retired ‘Tarzan’ posted the above photo on his Instagram account along with the caption ‘Back to basics.’
‘Puyi’ is no stranger to a simple life, as he comes from the small agricultural community of La Pobla de La Segur, just outside the Catalan town of Lleida. It is widely thought that in this simple environment, which is where he spent his childhood, is where he developed all the attributes that made him a fan favourite at Barça, his sense of self-sacrifice for the team, his honesty, integrity and tireless work ethic.
It goes without saying that ‘Puyi’ looks to be having fun in his new look, which sports a rich moustache and a beard.
FC Barcelona’s first team is in England.

Pedro Rodríguez is no longer an up-and-comer. Barça’s Pedrito is 27 today, and one of the team’s secret weapons. Barcelona’s no.7 will celebrate his 27th birthday having played 268 matches with the first team. He arrived at Barça at the beginning of the 2006/07 season when he was still a Juvenil, from his hometown club of CD San Isidro de Tenerife. Pedro made the leap to Barcelona B before the start of the 2007/08 season, contributing immensely to the promotion winning season Pep Guardiola’s team had. In the past season, Pedro played 59 matches, scoring 19 goals.
