Brazilian fans destroy Ronaldinho statue

Share |

Many furious Brazilian football fans have destroyed a seven-metre tall statue of world player of the year Ronaldinho after the team lost to France in the Germany 2006 World Cup. The local mayor's spokesperson says the statue, made out of resin and iron, in the southern town of Chapeco in Santa Catarina state, was burnt over this weekend.

Kattielly Lanzini, author of the masterpiece, told the police to start an investigation. It's important to mention that the statue was worth more than $ 2300, and it was about to be sold.

It is an amazing expression of anger against a team that was absolute favorite for this Cup, and against a player that was once loved and admired in Brazil. But we know that Ronaldinho has enough class to recover from this hard times.

This makes me very sad. Ronaldinho has and will continue to play his heart out for Brazil. It's very disappointing to see fans turn against him.

I agree. Burning his sitatue is a little violent for a guy who is usually amazing, and still did not play BADLY in the Cup.

that is just terrible!!! its soo mean i wonder what he did when he found out
the coach actually changed the 4mation i think to 4-5-1 and he made ronaldinho and kaka forwards and made juninho a midfeilder, anyway it kinda made it disorganised since they arent use to it, brazil cant win every world cup and everyone is being too harsh about it. Roanldinho is still the best player and just because the france scored once doesnt mean brazil played badly it just means the goalie was in the wrong place at the wrong time, i cant believe his fans would just do that because of 1 bad game everyone is disappointed so is he but at least have a heart to forgive him he is still the best player that loves the sport, and we all love him.

I still can't believe wat the Brazilian did. I'm not a Brazilian but i know how they feel becuz when the team lost against France i wanted to die. I'm french but i didn't cheer for them cuz my team was and will always be Brazil.
And my favorite player is Ronaldinho, I luv him to death and even do they didn't win the cup my feelings are as strong as the were before. The Brazilian dissapoint me real bad. They only love it when the team is winning. this is not a true love. I love Ronaldinho and i know that he will never, never dissapoint me... I LUV U RONNIE

You are right about the love thing.. this is not a true love. I was soooooooooooooooooo sad when they lost because the cup belongs to them and to no one else. They are the best, the greatest players in the World and Ronaldinho is the greatest. They lost i understand the feeling but by burning his statue nothing is going to change. This is a very stupid thing to do

The Brazilian just don't get it. They have the greatest players in their team and they doing such stupid thing!! it's unbelievable..
It's not Ronnie's fault if they lost against France, Thierry was lucky this day.. Why they are blaming Ronnie?
He's in the team and he was plying just like everyone else.. why him?
When they need more love from their fan they gey more hate..
The Brazilian just don't get it
