Paris - Brazilian former world player of the year Ronaldinho has returned home to sign for Rio de Janeiro club Fluminense.

A picture of the 35-year-old wearing the distinctive maroon and green striped shirt of 'Flu' was posted on the club's Twitter account over the weekend as he agreed to team up with fellow former Brazilian international Fred.

"Warriors! I feel at home! Thanks for the support! An honour to become a tricolour. We are together," Ronaldinho tweeted.

He had been a free agent since leaving Mexican side Queretaro in June after a disappointing year at the club.

Best remembered for his five-year spell at Barcelona between 2003 and 2008, Ronaldinho was part of the Brazil side that won the World Cup in 2002 and won the Ballon d'Or in 2005.
