Ronaldinho 'available' for Brazil recall
The 32-year-old has been in fine form since moving to Brasileirão outfit Atlético Mineiro from Flamengo in June.
Ronaldinho has won 94 caps for the national side since making his debut in 1999, but missed out on the 2010 World Cup squad under former boss Dunga and has rarely featured under Mano Menezes.
Earlier this week, Brazil's Football Confederation (CBF) president Jose Maria Marin said the "door was open" for the former Barcelona and AC Milan playmaker to return to the Seleção.
Ronaldinho has responded by saying: "Right now I'm only thinking about playing for Atlético but if the national team needs me I will be available.
Atlético currently lead the Brazilian Serie A standings with Ronaldinho revelling in the same midfield role he occupied during his zenith at Barcelona, where he won two La Liga titles and one Champions League crown.
He added: "I have never been as happy as I am at this club.
"I feel like I am participating more by playing in the midfield. I am touching the ball a lot more than I did playing in attack."
Atlético's next match will be against reigning champions Corinthians this evening.
