Former Milan star Ronaldinho says he wouldn’t have had a better career hadn’t he attended parties and admits he didn’t expect Leo Messi to join PSG.

Ronaldinho and Messi reunited before PSG’s Champions League clash against RB Leipzig on Tuesday night.

He also met his compatriot Neymar after the match.

“It was nice to meet them, I know they are on good terms and it was great to see them again,” the former Milan star told Le Parisien.

“Everybody in Brazil knows Neymar’s worth even if he’s gone through complicated moments. When Leo was in Barcelona, there was much talk about his qualities, and I saw them when we trained together.

“I never thought Messi would wear the PSG shirt,” Ronaldinho continued.

“I think they can aspire to win the Champions League, when you have players like that it is difficult to think that something important cannot happen.”

The former Brazilian striker spent two years and a half at Milan scoring 20 goals in 76 appearances across all competitions but failed to win any piece of silverware while at San Siro.

Ronaldinho won the Ballon d’Or in 2005, one year before lifting the Champions League with Barcelona.

He won two La Liga titles with the Catalans and the World Cup with Brazil in 2002.

“I have no regrets about my past I don’t think I would have had a more important and satisfying career if I hadn’t gone to the parties,” the former Brazilian star continued.

“I have no regrets and I am happy about everything. I am lucky God gave me so much and I consider myself a lucky person.”

Ronaldinho left Milan in January 2011 to join Flamengo, where he remained for a year and a half. He then signed for Atletico Mineiro, Mexican side Queretaro and Fluminense.

He retired in 2015 after scoring 266 goals in 699 games as a professional footballer.

  1. In fact – he left after that half season but was still eligible for a medal which he received and has a scudetto on his palmares – I think you guys ought to give me a job

  2. Lol @moderators : removing my comments – Ronaldinho has a scudetto on his palmares as I have pointed out but my comments are being removed – at least fix the article if you’re going to delete me

  3. Ronaldinho is so full of himself. He definitely would have been even better without partying and being lazy. He was a natural talent and with a little more discipline, he would have been even better than the monster he was
