Ronaldinho re-signs with Atletico Mineiro

RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 9 (Xinhua) -- Ronaldinho has ended speculation about his future by agreeing to remain at Atletico Mineiro, the Brazilian club confirmed on Thursday.

The 33-year-old's contract ended last month and reports strongly linked him with a move to Turkish side Besiktas.

But Atletico's president Alexandre Kalil said the two-time FIFA world player of the year had committed to at least another season at the club.

"(Our) fans might be annoying, but the guy is in love with them. He has re-signed!" Kalil wrote on Twitter.

Financial details and the length of the new contract were not disclosed.

Ronaldinho joined Atletico in June 2012 following a tumultuous 18-month spell with Brazilian rivals Flamengo.

He immediately recaptured his best form for the Belo Horizonte side and was influential in the team's 2013 Copa Libertadores triumph.
