Former Barcelona star Henrik Larsson says Ronaldinho was the greatest player he ever played withRonaldinho played with the likes of Messi in his Barcelona days -
The Swede has spoken of his admiration for the Brazilian, with whom he forged a close friendship during his two-year stay at Camp Nou between 2004 and 2006.
"The greatest player I played with has to be Ronaldinho," Larsson revealed in an interview with Goal.
"When I was at FC Barcelona he was at the height of his career, he was absolutely fantastic, the things he could do with the ball, and also the passing game he had was fantastic."
"I’m very proud that he used to call me his idol. When I was at Barcelona he used to joke a little bit that he watched me in the World Cup already in 1994, so he used to call me idolo and it was fantastic to hear that from one of the greatest players we’ve ever seen in the game I think," completed the 42-year-old.
