Ronaldinho enjoyed a highly successful spell with the Catalan giants between 2003 to 2008, during which he scored 94 goals in 207 appearances and was twice named Fifa World Player of the Year.

"I played with Ronaldinho when he was at his best; he did things that nobody else could," Saviola said in an interview with TyC Sports

"He never came into the dressing room with a worried face or any sign of pressure. 

"He always said that football was there to be enjoyed, that we were to have fun when we play, and that's what he did."

Ronaldinho later went on to spend three seasons with AC Milan before winding down his career with spells at Flamengo, Atletico Mineiro, Queretaro and Fluminense.
