VIDEO: Ronaldinho loses his boots as Raja Casablanca players take hero worship to a whole new level

Posted On Thursday, 19th December 2013
Ronaldinho and his teammates were left crestfallen.

Ronaldinho and his teammates were left crestfallen.

Ronaldinho was stripped to his little cotton socks after playing for Atletico Mineiro in Thursday’s Club World Cup semi-final with Raja Casablanca.

Moroccan side Raja were surprise 3-1 winners in the game in Marrakech but it wasn’t a place in the final with Bayern Munich which got the home side excited.

No, instead it was the opportunity to rub shoulders with Brazil ace Ronaldinho and get hold of a souvenir.

And, not content with his shirt, the Raja players surrounded the former world player of the year and gave him plenty of cuddles – and then walked off with his boots.

 

For Ronaldinho, the love-in was small consolation for a defeat which could cost him a place in Brazil’s World Cup squad.

The 33-year-old scored Atletico’s goal but was off the pace and ponderous in a game in which he was hoping to impress Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.

‘Of course I’m dejected,’ he told Brazilian TV. ‘The expectations were huge, it’s been a marvellous year and we have gone down in the club’s history [winning the Copa Libertadores]. This is tough, we’ll have to see what’s left for us.’
