Ronaldinho rejects 'favourites' tag
Ronaldinho has dismissed Atlético Mineiro's status as 'favourites' in the Copa Libertdores and warns team-mates that they must focus on their next game.
The Seleção star also spoke about the horror challenge by Diego Braghieri of Arsenal in Atlético's 5-2 win.
"It's too early and we do not want that responsibility. We want to take it step by step, with humility and gradually gain the confidence of everyone. So, from this, that everyone can recognize our work," Ronaldinho told Fox Sports.
"The crowd is supporting us, we hope only for us to do our part and with that let others fight. At this stage of the competition it's on us to accumulate points to qualify. Accumulating points is important then to do our part at home," he added.
On Braghieri's horror challenge, he said: "If not for the penalty I was not going to stay in the game, but in the heat of the game we get excited. I missed the penalty, but now it hurts, the tackle was hard."
