2005 Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo De Assis Moreira popularly known as Ronaldinho celebrated four decades on earth two days ago, which led to his former teammate and friend, Samuel Eto’o sending a message of hope, despite the Brazilian’s bleak days behind bars in Paraguay.
Eto’o in the video started with “hello brother, I have no words, brother. I don’t even know what to say, we are trying to see how we can encourage you.
“You are my brother, my friend. I can’t imagine what you’re going through. I can only ask you to have strength and to pray a lot.”
Samuel Eto’o had an almost telepathic connection with Ronaldinho on the pitch and just like the trio of: Neymar, Suarez and Messi, the Eto’o and Ronaldinho combo was equally fearsome and dreaded.
“I hope that all this can be solved soon, because you were frankly a good person and a good friend. From here, know that the ‘negro’ loves you very much and you can count on me for everything you need.
“What I can do, I will do. And if I can’t do it, I’ll ask a friend for the favor,” ended Africa’s most decorated player.
2002 world cup winner Ronaldinho is perhaps the most relevant pick in discussions of most skilled players of all time but he is now staring at what could possibly be a six months jail term for using a fake Paraguayan passport. Ronaldinho was rounded up to the crannies of a prison in Paraguayan capital, Asuncion on March 6.
Samuel Eto’o and Ronaldinho contributed 178 goals as a pair to the bluranga colours and as a duo, they lifted two La Liga titles, two Spanish super cups, and one UEFA Champions league trophy before Ronaldinho made way and Eto’o continued with other silverwares. The pair left unceremoniously, on an almost similar complaint as they both lavished blames on Pep Guardiola for disrespect.
Several other renounced footballers like Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos sent Ronaldinho best wishes on his birthday. A massive BBQ was used to celebrate the ever-smiling, no-sweat Ronaldinho’s birthday.
