Cup chief rips Dunga for leaving out Ronaldinho

6:39 am on 13 May 2010

The World Cup head organizer Danny Jordaan has criticized Dunga for leaving Ronaldinho out of Brazil's first-choice squad for the tournament, saying some coaches are blinded by a sense of power.

Jordaan says Ronaldinho is a football genius who had talents enjoyed by few in the game, both past and present.

Ronaldinho will play in South Africa only if there are injuries to other players after Dunga picked the two-time world player of the year in his 30-man squad as backup yesterday.

Jordaan ays it's sad and unfortunatethat the tournament will uffer without Ronaldinho, and that someone of Dunga's experience should have selected the AC Milan midfielder as a matter of course.
