Ronaldinho. The magician. The player that brought true samba to the game. Always with a smile on his face.
A big part of this card is nostalgia. Skilling with R10 and seeing that ponytail fly feels like you're watching him play in real life. But let's talk about how he is in game first.
Pace: He's fast. Not Mbappe fast, but fast enough to get away from defenders. He can easily get a couple of meters between him and the opposition when you play a through ball to him.
Shooting: Pretty good, but sometimes inconsistent. As a CAM or LW that's not a big problem, but if you're thinking of playing him striker he needs a chem style to max his shooting out.
Dribbling: Wow. This is the category where he really shines. He dribbles and especially skills like no other player I've used in this game. For example I have 90 Mbappe in my team, and although they should feel similar looking at stats and skillmoves Ronaldinho's dribbling is just a step above. I think it has something to do with having high strength and decent aggression as well which makes getting the ball off him very hard.
Defending: He doesn't really defend. He also doesn't track back a lot unless you manually make him because of his high/low workrates. And although he has good jumping he cannot head the ball very well.
Physical: Like mentioned before his strength and aggression stand out. It gives him a rare combination of strength, speed and dribbling which makes getting the ball off him really hard. His stamina is alright. He gets tired around the 80th minute if you run all game with him. Be a bit conservative and he'll make the 90th easily.
For me this card is an endgame card, but most importantly R10 makes this game fun again. Nothing is more enjoyable than to see Ronaldinho skill past two opponents and putting the ball in the back of the net. That's why, atleast for me, this card is worth it. Even if you don't know any skillmoves then Ronaldinho will make you want to learn.
I sold my entire club to do this SBC because I wanted him in my team. If you are like me and play Fifa mostly for fun and would like to play with a childhood hero then I'd say go for it and you won't regret it. If you don't recognize yourself in that then there's plenty of different players to spend your hard-earned coins.
