Ronaldinho edges ahead of Kaka in Confederations Cup race

Ronaldinho will once again captain Brazil in their friendly against Chile on Wednesday.

Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has confirmed he will hand the
armband to the 33-year-old for the clash against their South American rivals in
Belo Horizonte, which is Brazil’s final game before hosting the Confederations Cup in June.

As was the case with last month’s 4-0 friendly win over
Bolivia, only Brazilian-based players are available for Wednesday’s match –
meaning Ronaldinho has another chance to play his way into Scolari’s plans just
12 months before the World Cup.

Scolari has already admitted he is likely to select just
one of Ronaldinho or Kaka for the World Cup-dress rehearsal tournament and the Atletico Mineiro
star is now ahead of his fellow ex-FIFA player of the year in the manager’s pecking
order.

“Ronaldinho has the advantage because he played
against Bolivia and he will play again [against Chile],” the former
Chelsea boss said.

Scolari went on to label the ex-Barcelona forward as
“so important” to his side, adding: “I want to see the team
captain to show attitude and leadership, and that’s what I expect from Ronaldinho.”
