Dedicated fan of Ronaldinho collects every replica strip Brazil legend played in

Dedicated fan of Ronaldinho collects every replica strip Brazil legend played in

Posted by Laura Zúñiga on August 15, 2014

Ronaldinho has had his glittering career celebrated with a wall of replica shirts from all the clubs he has represented as well as the Brazil national team.

The legendary forward shared a picture on his Facebook page that shows dedicated fan Giovanny Tocohua posing in front of his collection of 78 shirts, each bearing Ronaldinho's name and number.

The colourful patchwork of 78 strips charts his career from its beginnings at Brazilian club Gremio, through Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Milan, Flamengo and, latterly, Atletico Mineiro.

There are also 23 from his time with the Selecao, for whom he won 97 caps and scored 33 goals.

Ronaldinho posted a message with the picture saying: 'Look at that collection Giovanny Tocohua has of the shirts I wore at the clubs I played for. My story is written in that picture! Thanks for caring!'

Tocohua must have spent hundreds of pounds in amassing the collection and appears to have every home, away and third shirt Ronaldinho has turned out in.
The 34-year-old is currently without a club after leaving Atletico Mineiro but is reportedly close to joining Santos.

The shirt collection marks a wonderful career in which Ronaldinho won two La Liga titles and the Champions League at Barcelona, Serie A with Milan, the Copa Libertadores with Flamengo and the World Cup with Brazil in 2002.

All in all, he has scored 273 goals and contributed 164 assists in 684 matches during the course of his 16-year career.
