Belo Horizonte (Brazil): Atletico Mineiro coach Cuca is unconcerned by the form of key playmaker Ronaldinho ahead of Wednesday`s Copa Libertadores final second leg against Olimpia.

An out of sorts Ronaldinho was substituted during the second half of Atletico`s 0-2 loss to the Paraguayan outfit in Asuncion last Wednesday, reports Xinhua.

"Nothing went right for Ronaldinho in the first match. He was very well marked and made errors that are not usual for him," Cuca said Friday.

But Cuca backed the 33-year-old to turn around his fortunes at the Mineirao Stadium here.

"He is the most technically gifted player that I have ever managed. He is the player which I think can most help us win the title. Wednesday will be his game, you can be sure of that," he added.

Atletico Mineiro have never won the Copa Libertadores, South America`s premier club competition, while Olimpia are eying for their fourth title.
