Ronaldinho Steals The Show As Manchester United Defeat Barcelona 3-1 In Match Of Legends (VIDEO)

Barcelona superstar Ronaldinho stole the show against Manchester United – but only after Dwight Yorke rolled back the years with a screamer in a legends match played at Camp Nou on Friday, June 30, 2017.

Although Manchester United won Barcelona three goals to one, no one apparently cared about the score line in these types of matches as fans were out there to see their favorite players put on a show.

The match, played at Barca’s Camp Nou, featured the likes of Rivaldo, Edgar Davids, Dwight Yorke and Karel Poborsky.

Yorke, who was of course part of that Treble-winning United side of 1999 that clinched the Champions League in the city, drove one in from 25 yards as United ran out 3-1 winners at the Nou Camp.

But it was the 37-year-old former Brazil superstar who grabbed the spotlight, as he almost got on the scoresheet first with a long-range free kick, only for the effort to be saved by Raymond Van der Gouw.

The Brazil legend might not have notched a goal – he was voted Man of the Match – but he did completely humiliate Jesper Blomqvist with a soul-crushing nutmeg.

In typical fashion, Ronaldinho’s dazzling array of tricks and flicks were the talking points of the contest, including a nutmeg through Jesper Blomqvist’s legs that caused the Swede to fall to the pitch.

However, it was further goals from Jesper Blomqvist and Karel Poborsky against a sole Frederic Behu strike for the hosts that sealed the win in the charity match.

The two sides will meet again at Old Trafford in September.
