FANFARE surrounding Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho reached new heights this past week, when a referee asked for the player’s signature … during the game, on his yellow card.

The Brazilian was making a guest appearance for Barcelona de Ecuador against San Martin in Guayaquil last week, as he is currently a free agent without a club.

Yet with a former Ballon d’Or winner in his midst, the match official could not help himself in asking for the 35-year-old’s signature. However, without a piece of paper at hand, he used a break in play to ask the former Barcelona star to sign the only apt replacement available … his yellow card.
