Ronaldinho convinced Guardiola's Man City can match his Barcelona success

Brazilian legend Ronaldinho is convinced Pep Guardiola's Manchester City is set to dominate Europe.

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."
