” It’s his father? »: South African Ronaldinho lookalike ignites social networks

Is Ronaldinho the father of South African player Miche Minnies? Social media is ablaze with questions regarding the young Mamelodi Sundowns striker.

Ronaldinho is still popular on social media, despite having retired for more than 5 years. The Brazilian’s name has gone viral again due to his striking resemblance to a South African footballer. Miche Minnies plays as a center forward for Mamelodi Sundowns, one of the biggest teams in South Africa. The members of the team are nicknamed “Brazilian” in reference to the color of their jersey.

Last Saturday, the Mamelodi Sundowns women’s section faced the Young Buffaloes in a championship match. A meeting which turned into a show of force for the locals who won with a clear score of 7-0, with a tip of the hat from Lelona Daweti. But of course, the most captivating moment was the entry into play of 21-year-old Miche Minnies in the 66th minute of the second half.

The appearance of the young woman, who is the hidden portrait of the 2002 Ballon d’Or, drove Internet users crazy who went so far as to wonder if the former Barça glory might not be the player’s father. Many have also pointed out that the Brazilian superstar has already gone to South Africa for a visit. However, Ronaldinho has only officially given birth to one child, a boy named João Mendes, the result of his 2004 romance with Janaina Mendes.
