Ronaldinho, who has now been under house arrest for more than 60 days, has sent a message to FC Barcelona.
The 40-year-old celebrated his birthday in prison after he and his brother Roberto Assis were caught in possession of fake passports in Paraguay.
However, on 7 April, both were released on bail, but remain under house arrest in a hotel due to an ongoing investigation into their potential involvement in a money laundering scheme.
In a strange coincidence, the hotel Ronaldinho stays in belongs to a group from Barcelona, which has seemingly led to the Brazilian sending a message to his former club.
"Barcelona and I are united forever. It will always be my second city," he told Mundo Deportivo.
"It is the most incredible club and its fans live deep in my heart."
He was also asked how the rest of season will turn out for his former club, with LaLiga football set to return this week.
"We are experiencing a pandemic that makes us think about the next season," he added.
"Not having games for so long, imagining empty stadiums and not having that energy that the fans give...
"We are going to have to adapt to this new normal.
"Talking about business management is not my thing, but the effort will have to be even greater to keep the club on the same level."
Barcelona currently lead the LaLiga table by two points ahead of bitter rivals Real Madrid. The Catalan giants will restart their title defence with a trip to relegation-threatened Mallorca.
