Ronaldinho stole the show as Barcelona secured their place at the top of the table following a 4-0 win over Villarreal at the Camp nou last night.
The Brazilian superstar scored from a first half penalty and crowned an impressive performance with a spectacular overhead kick in the final minute of the match.
Ronaldinho said after the match “I was thinking about controlling it and making it simple, but then the ball sat up and that was the result."
"Without doubt, this goal will change my life."
"In training I always try these things, and make them happen, and today it worked in a game.”The feeling was really special in front of a full stadium and the fans' reaction was great. I will certainly sleep well now."
The Brazilian has further ambitions though, adding that "I have also always wanted to score from the middle of the pitch, but that has not yet happened."
"The whole team have played well and we have great confidence."
Second half goals from Eidur Gudjohnsen and Andres Iniesta emphasised the homes sides’ dominance after playing something close to the kind of football that caught the eye last season. They are safe at the top of the table for at least a week, with 29 points from their opening 12 games. Barcelona must now try and maintain this level of performance for the forthcoming crunch match against Werder Bremen in the Champions league.
