Copa America: Brazilian winger, Raphinha fires back at Ronaldinho

Brazilian winger, Raphael Dias Belloli, poplarly known as Raphinha,  has fired back at Ronaldinho for his statement concerning the country’s national team ahead  of the forthcoming COPA America.

Recall that Ronaldinho, a Brazil football legend, had vowed he will not watch his country at the 2024 Copa America owing to the fact that the Samba boys do not play their hearts out anymore.

In a lengthy Instagram post, the former Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder described the current squad as one of the “worst teams”.

However, reacting to the development, Raphinha said he was surprised with Ronaldinho’s statement.

The Barcelona star said as quoted by Fabrizio Romano: “Ronaldinho’s statement? I don’t know if that was an adv or not but… a few days ago, I’m told he asked Vini Jr for tickets to come see our games (laughs).

“In any case, I was surprised and I don’t agree with his statement.”
