Laporta Fires Back At Ronaldinho

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has hit back at Ronaldinho’s recent claim that his last months at Camp Nou were a nightmare. Despite his backlash, the chief still believes the Brazilian is world class.....
The Brazilian endured a poor season with the Blaugrana last term as a result of a number of problems both on and off the pitch.  

He was quickly banished to the bench and, ultimately, pushed out of the club.  

‘Dinho recently spoke about his miserable days in La Liga and now Laporta has retaliated.  

“As a result of various reasons, we didn’t benefit from Ronaldinho at all for the past two years,” grumbled Laporta.  

“Nevertheless, he still remains a great champion and we must not forget he helped us to win the Champions League and two La Liga titles.”  

The Brazilian signed for Milan after one of the longest transfer saga’s in history.  

His €21m price tag was a big stake for the Rossoneri to gamble with and many sceptics believe the playmaker’s super days are over.  

However, since his move to San Siro, Ronaldinho is looking fit and in form.
