Brazil's most recognizable soccer player Pele expressed his disgust on Friday over the situation regarding Ronaldinho's return to Brazilian soccer.

Star midfielder Ronaldinho officially announced his release from AC Milan on Thursday. The player was alleged to define his new team in Brazil on that occasion, but he, alongside agent and brother Assis, refrained from making a decision.

Pele criticized the player's recent behavior and declared that if Ronaldinho truly loves his former team Gremio, then he should play there for free.

The legendary soccer player said that he is tired of the circus that has been created around the player's return to the country. Pele added that the apparent auction for Ronaldinho is lamentable and is negative for Brazilian soccer.
