U said before that he could pass for 5’11” and Honestly he really does look very near it.
More Specifically, 179.5-80cm seems likelier than 178-9cm flat.

Do u agree Rob?

He’s just a bad postured guy, hard to see him shorter than someone like George Clooney.

Do u agree Rob?
Editor Rob
I feel at the moment the current listing is arguable, but I can see (like with many situations) how a 1/4 inch greater is as arguable at times.

I agree his 181cm claim is too much, but 5’11” is just as possible as 5’10.5”, That's why somewhere between the 2 marks is more likely.
So a Weaker 5’11” range for Dinho fits him Overall from what I’ve observed over the last few years.

Do u agree Rob?
Editor Rob
There is a chance of it, but a full 5ft 11? I wouldn't be convinced on it.
Valois 2.0 said on 16/Aug/19
He always looked around 5'10/5'11, especially when on his earlier days. I miss him in Brazil national team.

He’s Listed 181-182cm everywhere, but I reckon he’s a Solid 181cm/Strong 5’11” Guy.

I can see how a fraction over 5ft 11 is very likely for him.

He’s listed 180cm everywhere, but that's too much. Tho admittedly he’s not much shorter than Dinho and Beckham,
But Generally looks Nothing over 5’10”! Possibly a weak one, His range is Somewhere in the 177-8 Range.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
5ft 10 seems quite possible for Figo.
Amadei said on 31/Dec/18
Hey Rob!
i do agree with this listing and it looks reasonable as i remember him playing for FC Barcelona back in time. but i have seen so many photos of him during the last years and i cant believe he is anywhere near 5 11! look at this photo of him next to Nene ( Brazilian footballer ) the guy wearing black standing in the middle who is listed as 181 cm tall! what do you think Rob?

If they are standing the same posture, then Dino looks nearer 178 than 180

@trays

Brazilian size is like 1 size less than European shoes

39-40 brazil is like 40-41 europe
Ali183 said on 11/Feb/18
He was 181 cm in Barcelona, but that's probably his morning height. Midday I'm sure he was 180cm exactly. But nowadays he has terrible posture and it seems like he lost a little bit of height. No more than 178 today
trays said on 29/Jan/18
Click Here
This might be a bit off topic, but he said here that he wears a size 39 or 40(in brackets they put size 9 in US but 39-40 is like size 7-8 in US.) Isn't that too small for his height? Probably average is 42-23 for that height.

brilliant footballer btw

When standing tall, he does look very close to if not a full 5’11”. Maybe 5’10.75” would be a better listing?

Editor Rob: it's not exactly something you could rule out. Overall I thought when I added him 179 seemed a good shout, but I can see how he can appear 180 too.

Just 178 tbh maybe 179 rounded up.
Editor Rob: weeks ago I'm taking you meant ;)

I'm sure he was for a couple of weeks.
Canson said on 5/Jun/17
@Johnson: so if the audio was poor and you said it began with 194 it could be 194.9 or 194. Why does he have to be 195 just to make Pique the height he "supposedly" bogusly messured? I guarantee pique is at least 1/2" less if not 2cm less than Ibra and Ibra isn't questioned here. He has legit estimates above by Rob as well as a reading you acknowledged where he's 194 range. Remember that Ibra is in his 30s long stopped growing. You can't go on just because so and so measured this in the pre draft etc making another guy "who actually is that size" taller just to accommodate the other one. If two Guys measure that way it's more than likely the taller of the two is that height the other is not really very rare a guy actually downgrades himself honestly

5ft8.5 is 174, not 178.

-- Ronaldinho's Height is 5ft 11in (180cm) --

Might b Solid 5'11" Flat, Could've got 181cm from the Morning/Early Day Measurement.
Johnson said on 27/Feb/17
@Canson I've had the chance to watch and listen to that clip of 194 of Ibra and I can say the audio is very poor and in the moment it is said the "194" the images do not correspond with the audio. I have been able to watch Piqué measuring 194.7-194.8 inflating the chest. According to Rob that is 0.7 cm extra. So that is why I am surprised and I gave my opinion about both guys they must be close in height actually.
I also had the chance to communicate through mail with Barcelona and a I made them correct and update data of height for this season. Denis Suarez was listed 181 and I got them to check and they changed listing him 176. The same I got with Arda Turan (178 before and 175 after my advice for example) or Alcacer (from 176 to 175), Umtiti (from 181 to 182), Pique (from 193 to 194). They just checked the medicals and so they told me
Canson said on 26/Feb/17
@Johnson: ibra measured both 194 and 194.5. Keep that in mind. He doesn't have to always get the "better of the two" just to make the other guy taller. He could be either or

Ronaldinho looks 1.77-1.78 next to 1.72 Robinho

In this another pic Pato looks taller. They are kinda similar, I haven't seen enough evidence of Ronaldinho being taller than Pato.

@James the same I can refute you about Pato, who is 179.5-180 cm and shorter than Ronaldinho as I prove

Ronaldinho is not even 1.80. Ibramimovic is like a giant next to him. Even 1.79 Alexandre Pato is taller than him.

Ronaldinho is 181. He is not shorter than Bartomeu (president of Barcelona who is 181). I bet Ronaldinho and Beckham are exactly the same but please I hope all the pics to compare Ronaldinho to be side by side against each other not far in the background

Y not give him 5'10.75" or 11"?
and y not mention his CV claim at the top?
Fe said on 2/Jan/17

Ronaldinho claims 181cm on his CV

That being said, I think he must be 5’10.75” minimum at least and could b a full 5’11”. Is it possible Rob?
Editor Rob: Fe, I do feel he is a bit shy of someone like Beckham, never really felt a proper 181 guy.
Johnson said on 30/Dec/16
He has a poorer posture than Beckham. I think they are the same height
Arthur said on 17/Nov/16
5'10.5 is really the most he could be, but I'll give him that, as he is definitely not under 5'10. He does look 1-2 cm under Beckham who is leaning here Click Here
Heylo said on 14/Nov/16
Even though he didn't last for long on top his best 2-3 years was more entertaining than any other football player. He didn't score as much goals as Messi or Cristiano but he had a grace with the ball like no one else, he moved the ball like a dancer. He was also throughout his whole career a fantastic underrated playmaker. And that smile is unforgotten. My favourite player of all time!

I thought he looked 5'11 or even weak 6ft at times but analysing more photos I can see how Rob lists him at 179cm.
James said on 11/Nov/16

More importantly, Ronaldinho is shorter than 1.79 Alexandre Pato and the difference with Ibrahimovic is too big to make him 1.80:

Tony Stork said on 11/Nov/16
@Editor Rob,

Plz upgrade him to 5'11", I don't want to ask u again. Because he really can look that range next to Valdes, Henry, Zidane, Mike Tyson. Henry is not even 3 inches taller, more like 2-2.5 inches at most. Rob, this listing is not right and I disagree with this!
I find it hard to believe he's under 5'11", he might look under it with loose posture, but the absolute minimum u could argue is 5'10.75" and more likely 5'11-11.25" on occasions.

So plz consider all of this and upgrade this guy.

Look at this video:

The difference between Cristiano and Ronaldo Nazario is no less than 6-7 cm. Even 1.82 Ramos is taller than Ronaldo Nazario in the video. It shows Cristiano Ronaldo is a solid 1.86. Remember he was listed as 186.5 at Real Madrid page in 2010.

CONCLUSION:

Cristiano Ronaldo 1.86
Ronaldo Nazario 1.80
Ronaldinho 1.78
Andrea said on 9/Nov/16
Really? Ronaldo only 180? I think there's noway he's that short...
He did a tv show, where he had to lose weight, and they had his stats down in a medical center... Now, i don't know if they actually measured him or not but his height was down as 184!
There are a few pictures with Hugh Jackman and they don't look much different!

Felipe said on 8/Nov/16
About 18 or 19 years ago I met him in a shopping mall in my city, Porto Alegre (he was born here too).
At the time, he was a player of the junior team of Gremio (the team I root for) and was not very famous yet, so there was no one surrounding him at the mall.
He seemed slightly shorter than I. I think his height is 181 cm or 182 cm (I'm 185 cm).
Sorry if I misspelled something.

Ronaldinho is about the same height as David Beckham. Either the former needs an upgrade to 5ft11, or the latter needs a downgrade to 5ft10.5

Editor Rob: tricky to tell Levi, I think at times he looked under and over an inch smaller.
Andrea said on 7/Nov/16
A good inch taller than Mike Tyson??? They don't look much different in photos, let alone a good inch taller...
I never really looked into him but Ibra seems to have quite a big amount on him: Click Here
Rob, since you're adding more and more footballers lately, what about Buffon? In this double interview, he claims to be 191 (and he says his shoe size is 45): Click Here
I am sure he's also claimed 192 in an italian tv show, though!
I'd say he must be somewhere in 6'3 range, possibly a fraction over (6'3.25)! He may well have measured nearer 192 in an earlier measurement...
Editor Rob: yeah Andrea, Buffon is probably up there with Iker as one of the best goalkeepers of the last 15 years, 6ft 3.25 might be reasonable.
Tony Stork said on 7/Nov/16
@Editor Rob,

Yeah, i know he doesn't give a full 5'11" impression is because of his bad posture.
I have told u about a guy who I've met in person who also met Him. Look at him with these guys....

Steve Nash
Click Here
Click Here

Thierry Henry
Click Here

Henry never looks 3inches taller the Ronaldinho. And I'm not sure if Nash is over 2inches on him. If Henry is 186-187cm, then Ronaldinho is 180-181cm he can't b any shorter than that and I find it hard to buy anything lower than that.

So plz upgrade him to 5'11"!!
Khole said on 6/Nov/16
Rob most of your guesses are on point. Like idk how u do that.
Arthur said on 6/Nov/16
Hey Rob, didn't you say before he was more 178 cm?
Editor Rob: he could look it at times, but from all I've seen I think he's over 5ft 10, but I'm not so convinced as tall as 5ft 11.

BTW I know a person who I met (his name is Abbas Farid) and he looked 5'6" max in person. When him and Ronaldinho met, Dinho looked more 13cm taller than him.
5'10.5" is waay to low for him!
He doesn't look that much shorter than Zidane or Valdes and he's a good inch taller than Mike Tyson.
Plz upgrade him to 5'11" or possibly 11.25"!
Editor Rob: from what I've seen of him over the years my impression was not quite a full 5ft 11, although I can understand how at times he could pass for 5ft 11.
