“worst teams”: Ronaldinho vows not to watch Brazil matches, gives heartbreaking explanation

Brazilian legend, Ronaldinho Gaucho has vowed not to watch matches involving his national team in the upcoming 2024 Copa America in the United States, Newspremises reports.

The mood within the Brazil squad has been less than ideal recently, following a series of disappointing performances from the five-time World Cup champions.

The most recent setback was a 1-1 draw against the USA, a team that had recently suffered a 5-1 loss to Colombia, as reported by Sportstar.

Despite some considering Brazil as dark horses for the tournament, their recent form has been far from impressive, even with Ballon d’Or contender Vinicius Junior in their ranks.

In 2023, the Canarinha faced difficulties, failing to secure a victory in four World Cup qualifiers held in October and November. They currently sit in sixth place, the last automatic qualification spot.

Since Dorival Junior assumed the coaching role in January, the nine-time South American champions have shown signs of improvement, achieving wins against England and Mexico and drawing with Spain.

Nevertheless, facing formidable opponents like Lionel Messi’s Argentina and a rejuvenated Uruguay under Marcelo Bielsa in the Copa America presents a significant challenge.

Given these circumstances, it’s understandable that Ronaldinho is not optimistic about Brazil’s chances of winning this year’s competition.

The 44-year-old in a lengthy Instagram post, described the current squad as one of the “worst teams”.

“A lack of love for the shirt, lack of grit and the most important of all: football.

“I repeat, our performance has been one of the worst things I’ve ever seen. Such a shame.

“I therefore declare my resignation. I will not watch any CONMEBOL Copa América game, nor celebrate any victory,” the statement read in part.

Dorival Júnior’s men begin their Copa América campaign on June 25 against Costa Rica.
