FC Barcelona legend Samuel Eto’o has sent a heartfelt message to former teammate Ronaldinho after celebrating his 40th birthday in prison.
Ronaldinho is currently in a Paraguayan jail after being caught entering the country with a fake passport.
In a post on his Instagram and Facebook pages, the former Chelsea, Barcelona and Inter Milan star promised to assist the former Ballon d’Or winner.
“Hello brother, I have no words, brother. I don’t even know what to say, we are talking to see how we can encourage you,” Eto’o said in the video.
“You are my brother, my friend. I can’t imagine what you’re going through. I can only ask you to have strength and to pray a lot.
“I hope that all this can be solved soon, because you were frankly a good person and a good friend. From here, you can count on me for everything you need.
“What I can do, I will do. And if I can’t do it, I’ll ask a friend for the favor.”
Meanwhile, Eto’o and Ronaldinho won two Champions League titles, four La Liga, one Copa del Rey and two Supercopa de Espana titles.
