When the first half of a Milan vs. Catania in San Siro ends, we are going together to the locker room and in the tunnel he takes off his shirt and says to me: 'Tomá, Álvarez . Please don't hit me anymore.' And he gave me the shirt, "he said, laughing.
"It was impossible to stop Ronaldinho he was in the air, he was impeccable. Far from being one of the best players that football history could give," acknowledged the Arsenal defender of Sarandí in an interview with "Crack Deportivo".
Meanwhile, he remembered when he played against Lionel Messi . "I had to play a Zaragoza vs. Barcelona and something similar happened to me with Ronaldinho . I had to tell Messi that he Go on my side, do not make me feel ashamed for being a compatriot. He was shitting with laughter. I also have his shirt in the home museum, "he said.
