Ronaldinho hails Man City's Brazilian trio

Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldinho admits he's a fan of Manchester City's Brazilians.

Gabriel Jesus, Ederson and Fernandinho are all crucial players for City boss Pep Guardiola.

And Ronaldinho told the Guardian of Ederson, “Another great goalkeeper – Brazil are lucky to have him and Alisson right now. He is also calm and strong and also very good at kicking the ball, which has made him important for Manchester City."

On Gabriel Jesus, he says: “This young man is an idol among Brazilians because he is so young but has already achieved so much. A fantastic player who can score goals and make them with his talent. He will have a big career, I'm sure of that."

And he said of Fernandinho: “I am maybe a bit biased because he is a friend of mine but honestly I believe he is a fantastic player. Widely experienced and one of the best in his position in the world. The best? Maybe."
