Ronaldinho wins ESPY award and talks to his fans
"I am sorry we left the World Cup stage without being able to show our true talent and what we are capable of.
"I admit that I wanted a different end to my personal dream of winning one more World Cup, but it just didn't happen.
"I am sorry. Nothing I can say will change what happened. This is why I want to apologise, along with my team-mates, for not winning the World Cup in Germany."
In fact, Ronaldinho has carried the brunt of much of the fans' criticism after failing to reproduce the form he showed throughout the season at FC Barcelona.
"We now need your help to build on this squad" the midfielder asked his fans.
