Models, actresses and even the daughter of a coach, all of them were linked to Ronaldinho Gaúcho, one of Brazil’s best soccer players ever, who retired in 2015. Now, the legend is spending time in South America, having fun and parties like he did all his life. He has had many girlfriends; we’ll look at some from his professional life.
Alexandra Paressant was one of his first girlfriends when he was having his stellar spell in Barcelona. She revealed in 2006 to The Sun that during the World Cup in Germany, the coach Carlos Alberto Parreira did not like his players to sleep with their couples. Ronaldinho didn’t like either that she made it public.
By 2007 he dated Lindsay Rijkaard. Does the name ring a bell? Yes, the daughter of his coach in Barcelona, Frank Rijkaard. Two years later Chilean media stated he was dating a model named María José López. Then, in 2011, we knew two more girlfriends: Italian model Sara Tommassi and Brazil’s Carnival Queen Shayene Cesario.
It was 2013 when he posted a picture on Twitter saying “The women of my life”, showing himself with his mother, his sister and Jackeline Oliveira, awarded “Miss Brazil”. Did you ever have a tattoo related to any lover? Well, Brazilian model, actress and DJ Vannessa Tasquetto did so, showing an ‘R10’ letter in her body. The latest girlfriend we know from Ronaldinho in his professional days is Janaina Natielle Mendes.
