Rijkaard said: “Ronaldinho has been phenomenal. Tonight he has decided the game. What I liked most is the way until the last minute he kept fighting to win. That it scores quality goals is the normal thing, but it’s great to see him fighting for the triumph until the end.
Barca president Joan Laporta added on the Brazilian: “This is the Ronaldinho that we want to see. He has delighted us all. Ronaldinho never hides and is the player who can influence the team and the spectacle. He has been extraordinary.”
