Legendary Brazillian footballer, Ronaldinho Gaúcho is coming to Pakistan! The 36-year-old player infamously won the 2002 World Cup! He announced the news in a video message where he is seen  holding Pakistan’s flag and said ‘Pakistan, I am coming!’.

Ronaldinho has signed a contract with Leisure Leagues Pakistan along with more big names from the game. The player is expected to promote football in the country by participating in the Exhibition matches. After cricket fans got a taste of having a local premier league, football fans have been elated ever since the Leisure Leagues have been announced.

Soon after the announcement, our lala took to twitter to wholeheartedly welcome the celebrated footballer.

Ronaldinho responded with the same vigour and love for our national star and wrote a tweet in his native language.

“Happy by the words [of] Shahid Afridi BOOM BOOM cricket hero from Pakistan. I look forward to my visit to Pakistan in July.”

And lala responded by saying that he eagerly awaits his arrival:

Along with Ronaldinho, Dutch footballer, George Boateng and English former goalkeepeer, David James are expected to be part of the trip to the Land of Pure.

Leisure Leagues is a UK-based football organisation that is also considered as the largest provider of five-a-side, six-a-side and seven-a-side leagues in Europe, prominently in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and USA. This could pose really well for the football scene in Pakistan and polish upcoming talent through the league system.
