Ronaldinho has told Lionel Messi that he “must stay” at Barcelona, saying the Argentine superstar is in a position where he can ensure that “nobody will touch” the No 10 shirt at Camp Nou again.
An all-time great has filled that iconic jersey in Catalunya since inheriting it from the Brazilian superstar in 2008.
Two-time World Player of the Year Ronaldinho is delighted to see six-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi raising the bar and wants to see contractual issues ironed out that would allow the 34-year-old to remain.
Barca legend Ronaldinho, who spent five years at Camp Nou at the peak of his powers, told TuttoMercatoWeb:
“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 No 10 there and nobody will touch it again.”
