Legendary Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho has arrived in Kozhikode, Kerala, ahead of the relaunch of Sait Nagjee Trophy, which is being restarted after a gap of 21 years.

Ronaldinho, who is the Guest of Honour at the event, will be in Kerala for two days. The former World Cup and Champions League winner landed in Kozhikode in the early hours of Sunday.

A day earlier, the former Ballon d'Or winner had expressed his delight at being part of the event, which is being supported by Football for Peace Global, a UK-based charitable trust.

"Football has the power to unite people. I am supporting the work carried by Football for Peace Global, and am proud today to be the guest of honour of Nagjee International Club Football Tournament 2016, and becoming a Footballer for Peace," he had told reporters during a press conference in Dubai.
