Ronaldinho sees similarities between City and Guardiola's former Barcelona team.
Asked if he will bring similar success to the Etihad, he said: “I believe so.
“As a player, he was already playing with a very technical mind, so he was playing as a coach, thinking about everything like a coach. So he has a deep knowledge of football.
“Wherever he goes, he understands much more than a normal coach. He understands the feeling on the field."
Ronaldinho also had a good word for Gabriel Jesus.
He told the Mirror: “I totally believe he will have a big part to play for City going forward. I love his style of playing. I truly believe that at City he will make a difference."
