Mexican first-division club Queretaro signed the former 34-year-old soccer star, who had been without a club since leaving Brazil's Atletico Mineiro in July and had been negotiating with several clubs. The upbeat mood of his signing didn't last long. Even before he had played his first match, Ronaldinho became the subject of a racist attack _ the kind that have become common with black football players across Europe.
