Seattle Sounders youngster Fisher 'speechless' when meeting Barcelona legend Ronaldinho

Seattle Sounders' Oniel Fisher wasn't sure how to act when he bumped into Brazilian football great Ronaldinho on the weekend.

The 23-year old Jamaican defender/midfielder made his first MLS appearance in the 0-0 draw with FC Dallas when coming on as a late substitute at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

Staying in the same hotel as the Sounders was Liga MX side Queretaro FC where former Barcelona, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain star Ronaldinho now plies his trade.

Seattle players got the chance to meet the 35-year old two-time FIFA World Player of the Year and Fisher admits it was a great thrill.

"Whoaaah, it was a great feeling. I couldn't believe it, I didn't know what to say," he told the Sounders official website.

"He is one of my favourite players so it was really great seeing him and getting a photo with him. I didn't know what to do.

"I was speechless. I was just like, 'Can I get a picture?'"
