Ronaldinho claims he ‘still follows Milan‘ and hopes ‘Monza will soon be promoted to Serie A.’
The former Barcelona and Milan star is in Taormina to receive the Nations Award.
“I’ve received a warm welcome and I am happy,” the Brazilian legend told Tuttomercatoweb.
“I am still following Milan, they are doing well, they are a top club and I hope they will continue like this.”
The 41-year-old spent two years and a half in Milan, scoring 26 goals in 95 appearances.
He has 94 goals in 207 appearances with the La Liga giants.
The 2002 Brazil World Cup winner joined the Rossoneri from Barcelona, during the presidency of Silvio Berlusconi, who has now bought Monza.
“I bring Berlusconi and (Adriano) Galliani in my heart, I am waiting for Monza in Serie A,” the Brazilian said.
Ronaldinho also shared his thoughts on Barcelona and Leo Messi’s contract extension.
“Leo must stay because he is the history of the club,” he said.

Messi’s contract expired on June 30 and the Catalans have reached a principle of agreement with the Argentinean star but must free up wages to announce his extension.
Juventus are considering Pjanic’s return, while Roma reportedly made an opening bid to sign Lenglet.
However, their €15m bid is €10m short of Barcelona’s asking price.
