Ronaldinho Gives Verdict On Messi

Barcelona icon Ronaldinho recently gave his opinion on whether Lionel Messi should stay or leave the Catalan club ahead of next season, before making a stunning claim about the Argentine's iconic No. 10 shirt.

The 34-year-old's contract at the Camp Nou expired last month, but reports suggest that he has agreed a new deal with the club, although it cannot be made official until the Blaugrana sort out their finances. 

Ronaldinho, who played with Messi between 2005 and 2008, said in a recent interview that his ex-colleague should stay at Barca, and added that the club should retire his jersey once he hangs up his boots. 

"He must stay, he is the history of Barca," the Selecao legend said, according to Barca Blaugranes

"When Messi retires, which I hope will be in a long time, he can leave the No. 10 there and nobody will touch it again."

The 2002 FIFA World Cup winner left the LaLiga giants in 2008 after the arrival of manager Pep Guardiola, who is said to have sold the Brazilian because he believed he would become a negative influence on Messi, as the two South Americans were known to be close.
