Ronaldinho still in Seleção plans says Scolari
Luiz Felipe Scolari has revealed that Ronaldinho is still in his plans for the Confederations Cup in June despite leaving the Atlético Mineiro star out of his latest squad.
The Seleção boss announced his squad last night and there was no room for the former Barcelona star but insists that everyone will get their chance before the tournament.
"Ronaldinho will be called up next time,” the 2002 World Cup-winning coach said. “All potential World Cup squad members will be given at least two matches to be looked at.”
The former Barcelona star’s fellow veteran and Ballon d’Or winner Kaka was recalled after being omitted from the team that lost to England 2-1 at London’s Wembley Stadium last month.
Ronaldinho played in the match but missed an early penalty and was substituted at half-time.
"Kaka’s return goes with our philosophy of giving everybody a chance,” Scolari said.
"Many of the players are fighting for the same position. I will observe all of them and then I will decide who will go to the Confederations Cup.”
