Former Barcelona player Ronaldinho has offered his support to Lionel Messi.
The latter and his father have been sentenced by a court for tax offenses. Ronaldinho said that he is with them, and it is hard to see his former Barcelona teammate suffering.
Ronaldinho has also said that it is sad to see Lionel Messi ends his international career. He believes that the player is still young and that he still can contribute to Argentina. He said that Lionel Messi is the best player in the world at the moment and that it is difficult to see such a talent retire from international football.
However, he believes that we should respect his decision. He said that the player has thought a lot about his decision and that we should abide by his choice. Ronaldinho said that Lionel Messi has already contributed a lot to Argentina football, but it is unfortunate that he could not win a major tournament with his national team.
Ronaldinho, who is currently without a club after leaving Fluminense, said that he still wants to play at the highest level. He said that he still feel well and that he wants to play for a long time. He admitted that he currently does not have any club but that he is actively looking for one.
There was news that Ronaldinho might be going to China in the summer. Indeed, there were a few Chinese clubs that were interested in signing the Brazilian legend but so far there are no concrete offers that have been made. Ronaldinho said that he does not know at which club he will retire at the moment but that he is opened to every option. At the moment Ronaldinho is helping young footballers start their career and said that he believes that sport can help people get out of poverty.
