Barcelona's Brazilian forward Ronaldinho, whose form has dipped this season, has stressed that he is not a "super hero."

"Even if lots of people thought that I could be (a super hero), I'm human and it's clear to me that I've never been a super hero," Ronaldinho told Marca newspaper.

The Brazilian said that it was "normal" that he had been relegated to the replacements' bench since his return from injury.

"I've had a month without playing and I have to refind my fitness. At first I played a few minutes, the other day I played half an hour and now I'm looking to refind my starting spot," he said.

Ronaldinho, 27, has only started 10 matches in La Liga this season because of a series of injuries and also a dip in form.
