​Brazilian legend Ronaldinho is set to take the pitch for Fluminense once more as the Brasileirão club announced this week.


The 35-year-old has been without a club since leaving Fluminense two months ago after indifferent form led the former Barcelona man to request the termination of his contract.


Fluminense sporting director Mario Bittencourt said of Ronaldinho's decision in September: 

"Ronaldinho asked us for a meeting. He respectfully told us he didn't feel he was able to perform as good as he wanted and that it was a bad situation for him. 

"He made a great gesture in saying he wasn't being the player he felt he could be right now. I'll never speak about whether or not he is retiring. That's not something you say about a player of his calibre. He was always spectacular, as player and person."


The news is very much the opposite now as the veteran playmaker is set to return to Fluminense to take part in the Florida Cup.


"We are going to Orlando for the Florida Cup, and as a matter of marketing and brand expansion, Ronaldinho will play for us," Fluminense president Peter Siemsen told Radio Tupi (h/t Goal.com).

"Ronaldinho and Fluminense maintain a great respect for each other. And for the American market is very attractive brand of player."
