Great stuff from the Brazilian

One of the most memorable times in recent Barcelona history has to be when we got to witness a young Lionel Messi earn his reputation with Ronaldinho on the pitch. The two of them were fantastic individual players and seeing the mutual respect for one another is a thing of beauty.

That respect has continued into the post-playing career for Ronaldinho. This week he commented on Messi’s still official free-agent status.

“He must stay, he is the history of Barca. When Messi retires, which I hope will be in a long time, he can leave the number 10 there and nobody will touch it again.”

Gotta agree with Ron on this one. Lovely to see his support and adoration of Messi continuing.
