Football legend Ronaldinho has told the world how he first found Lionel Messi.
The Barcelona star was a club main when Messi was making his debut! Now almost one and a half decade later, here is what Ronaldinho felt!
“When I arrived at Barcelona, there was already talk of a kid who stood out,” Ronaldinho said.
“Then we were friends; we started playing together and got on very well. He arrived being different to all the others, and we spoke with [Frank] Rijkaard so that he came to train with us – it was all very fast.”
“I was lucky enough to give him the pass for his first goal. Over time, it’s very nice to see someone who starts out so close to you and then conquers the world.”
“We were always very close,” he continued. “We learned things, he taught me Spanish and I taught him Portuguese, but with the ball we understood each other perfectly.
“I’d be left amazed by how calm he is. That’s something I love about him; he never gets into trouble, he’s always with his family and those closest to him. Leo has everything, he didn’t need anything from me.”
