Ronaldinho returns to Barcelona

Roughly eight years after parting ways, Barcelona will use Ronaldinho as first-team ambassador at the inauguration of a new corporate facility in New York on September 6.

The Catalan giants open this new office located in Park Avenue in order to increase their international expansion.

To do so, the Blaugrana join forces with one of the clubs most emblematic players since it was founded in 1899.

In Ronalidnhos five seasons at the Camp Nou (2003-2008) Barcelona went from stringing together five trophy-less campaigns to regaining their status as a European powerhouse.

The spectacular play of the Brazilian at his peak paved the way for the success of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez and others.

Danish defender Line Roddik Hansen will represent the womens squad, while several members of the Board of Directors will make the trip to the United States.

President Josep Maria Bartomeu will lead a crew of team executives including three vice-presidents: Jordi Cardoner, Jordi Mestre and Manel Arroyo.
