“Deco, Sylvinho and I always passed to Leo in order to help him adapt as quickly as possible.  He will do the same with Neymar.

“Neymar has it all and will be the best player in the world in the coming years, but only when Messi is no longer at his peak.”

‘Dinho went on to take a jab at Cristiano Ronaldo and his campaign to win the 2013 Ballon d’Or.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is furious because he lives in the same era as Messi.”

Ronaldinho went on to discuss a hypothetical Club World Cup final between his side, Atletico Mineiro and his former manager Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich.

“We come in as equals and look to win.  We’re not going to change our style.  Our style of play is good enough.  European players don’t follow Brazilian football and this could be our window of opportunity.

“Bayern Munich’s manager knows a lot about Brazilian football.  He’s coached several player from here and he’ll have an abundance of videos and information before he gets here.”
