The reason Messi’s debut came so early was because Ronaldinho asked the coach for it. Recently on an interview he said that – he asked coach frank Raicard to let Messi play in the main team and the coach heeded his word.

Barcelona started ruling in Spanish football with the combination of Ronaldinho and Raicard. Both joined in 2003. Raicard was the coach and Ronaldinho was the star player. They won 2 La Liga trophies together. They also won 2 Spanish super Cup with one UEFA Champions League trophy.

The relation between these two persons was very good. Ronaldinho knew that is request will be granted by the coach. He was very amazed after seeing the play of Argentine “little magician.” He was the playmaker then and he wanted Messi to join by his side.

With considering everything, he asked the coach to let Messi lay in the main team.

Ronaldinho claimed that – “I am that player who asked coach Raicard to let Messi practice with the main team. Cristiano Ronaldo is a complete player but Messi is even better. He can really do magic with his legs.”
