Lionel Messi insists Barcelona still lean on Ronaldinho.

The Argie whiz denies he has taken over from Ronie as Barca's main inspiration: "I need him on the pitch with me because when he plays, I feel better.

"Ronie is well and continues being the star of this team, at least for me and my teammates. We need him if we're to improve our position, which I am convinced we will."
