Messi spoke of Ronaldinho yesterday over the way he was forced to quit Barca for AC Milan.

And Ronie's brother, Roberto de Assis, said: "The cases of Ronnie and Messi are not comparable because every player has his story. My brother had a dramatic moment before going to Italy, while with Leo I hope he enjoys the magic that comes from winning titles and being a champion.

"It's a lifelong friendship that arose during our time in Barcelona. He was a different friend, and together at home, on our part, is one of the family. Messi is an amazing person and a spectacular player."
