Ronaldinho roasts Arsenal

As if they haven’t copped enough, Ronaldinho has given Arsenal a roasting! The Brazilian legend says his side Barcelona took it easy in their 2-1 win over the Gunners in the 2006 Champions League final. 

The Gunners took an early first-half lead over a world class Barcelona XI, although it was short lived as Barcelona went on to score two goals to win the final. Did Barcelona go easy on Arsenal?

“It could have been more than 2-1.”

The magician says that the only reason they didn’t win by more, was to allow debut goalscorer Juliano Belletti to be the match-winner.

“We never doubted we would win that match,” he told FourFourTwo.
