The bona fide star and talisman of the Barcelona 2006 team, it was a real shame that Ronaldinho couldn’t make Deco’s testimonial match at the Estadio Dragao last night.
Ronnie was too tied up with Atletico Mineiro duties to make it over, but he still took the time to pay tribute to his former teammate, with whom he won the 2006 Champions League.
The Brazilian posted a picture of the pair to Twitter, along with the message,
‘One of the best players with whom I played and became champion! Congratulations for your victorious career, you deserved it!’
