Ronaldinho To Come Out Of Retirement To Help #Chapecoense

Ronaldinho and Juan Roman Riquelme would consider coming out of retirement to play for tragic club Chapecoense, according to reports from South America.

The Brazilian side have been devastated by the loss of 19 players, as well as a number of backroom staff, in a plane crash in Colombia on Tuesday.

Despite the deaths of many of their squad, Chapecoense may still be required to fulfill fixtures in the coming weeks, before they embark on the process of rebuilding the club.

And two football legends could help the team in their time of need.

Some reports have suggested Ronaldinho, who won the World Cup with Brazil and can list Barcelona, AC Milan and PSG among his previous employers, and former Argentina international Juan Roman Riquelme have offered their services for free.

Ronaldinho's agent and brother, Roberto Assis, said no talks had yet taken place - as Brazil continued to mourn the tragedy - but he confirmed that the two-time FIFA World Player of the Year will do all he can to help the club.

'It is a very difficult time,' Assis told Globo Esporte. 'Later on, if there is a contact, we can talk.
'I can only say that we are here and we want to help.
'He (Ronaldinho) fits the profile, can be the right guy. 

But the moment is to help families and it would be (wrong) to create expectations for now. As Brazilians, we feel involved. We are together.'
