Jô: Ronaldinho has played his last match for Atlético-MG
Ronaldinho has not contacted anybody at the club since they clinched the Recopa Sudamericana on Wednesday with a 5-3 aggregate victory over Argentina’s Lanus.
Jô, the 34-year-old’s team-mate and friend, expects that to be his last game for the club.
Ronaldinho was substituted early in the second half of that game before the two-time FIFA World Player of The Year winner wrote on Twitter: "Galo (Atletico Mineiro) will always be in my heart."
He was then given a week off by Atlético officials to take part in a testimonial game for former Barcelona teammate Deco but he failed to show up for Friday’s match in Lisbon after reportedly missing his flight.
"I didn`t speak with him after the (Recopa) win, but everything indicates that it was his last match," Jô told Globoesporte.
"The way he said goodbye to everybody gave that impression."
Local media has claimed that Ronaldinho has not contacted anybody at Atlético since the Recopa victory.
"We don’t know anything and we will wait for an official word about him," added Jô
Ronaldinho has been linked with both Boca Juniors of Argentina and Besiktas of Turkey.
