Ronaldinho says he needs to get better

Sao Paulo:

The best soccer player in the world thinks he needs to get better. Brazil's Ronaldinho, who won his second straight FIFA World Player of the Year award earlier this month, said that he is not completely satisfied with his game. "I still need to improve,'' Ronaldinho told Globo TV in Brazil during the introduction of a comic book character based on him. "I'm young, and I believe that I still can mature a lot as a player.'' The 25-year-old FC Barcelona midfielder said he wants to get better in every area. "I'd like to shoot better with my left foot, for example,'' he said. Ronaldinho, who helped Brazil win the 2002 World Cup title in Japan and South Korea, was awarded this year's FIFA World Player of the Year award on December 19. "I was happy to win this second FIFA award because there were a lot of prestigious players contending,'' he told the Terra Web site. Ronaldinho beat Chelsea's Frank Lampard and FC Barcelona teammate Samuel Eto'o in the final stage of the poll of national team coaches and captains. Ronaldinho, who also was crowned the best player of the year in Europe, helped Barcelona win the Spanish league title for the 17th time earlier this year - the team's first in six years. He will lead Brazil on its quest for a record sixth World Cup title next year in Germany. (AP)
