When he goes with a ball, Ronaldinho turns into the world's most feared soccer player. But when he is Off the ground, Ronaldinho comes across as just a regular guy.

Indeed, the Brazilian star is not completely comfortable in his latest role, marketing soccer during an American tour aimed both at raising the sport's profile in the United States and preparing his own club for the Spanish season.

"The marketing part is coming along little by little," Ronaldinho Gaucho expressed. "I like doing the commercials. Everyday I'm a little more comfortable."

"In every competition, we see they are improving and could do something big within a short amount of time," said Ronaldinho, who wouldn't rule out playing in the U.S. in the last part of his career.
