As former greats of Real Madrid and Barcelona prepare for the ‘El Clasico Legends’ match in Tel Aviv today, players from both sides showed their admiration for Ronaldinho in the build-up to the match.
During Monday’s press conference ahead of the exciting exhibition match, the Brazilian legend was greeted warmly by a host of his former teammates and rivals, such as Deco, Luis Figo, Iker Casillas and Roberto Carlos.
The match will also feature a number of other greats such as Rivaldo, Gaizka Mendieta, Jose Amavisca and Juan Pablo Sorin.
Whilst certain players have played for both sides, such as Luis Figo, Luis Milla, Alfonso Perez, Javier Saviola, Miguel Soler and Dani Garcia, the former three are set to play for Real Madrid, whilst the latter trio will play for the Blaugrana.
Iker Casillas will be the guest of honour, as part of his new role as ambassador of the Real Madrid Foundation, following his retirement from football two years ago.
