Following his decision to hang his boots, a host of football stars sent out heartfelt messages to the 37-year-old Brazilian legend on social media.
He wrote: a�?As I always said, I learned a lot by your side. I will always be grateful to you for how easy it was that you did everything to me when I got to the dressing room.
a�?I was lucky to share many things with you and I am very happy because, in addition to a phenomenon with the ball, you are a very great person and that is the most important thing.
a�?Even if you decide to leave, football will never forget your smile. All the best, Ronnie.a��
The duo played together at the Camp Nou for four years before Ronaldinho departed for AC Milan.
