Barcelona have reportedly left angered by comments from the legendary and their club ambassador, Ronaldinho over his view on Lionel Messi's transfer to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

Ronaldinho had revealed that Messi's move away from Barcelona had come as a surprise to him and the Brazilian was seen embracing his good friend head of PSG’s Champions League clash against RB Leipzig back in October – when the Brazilian was a guest of honour.

"It is a great joy to have played for these two clubs and now to see my friend wearing this shirt, there are many moments of joy for Leo Messi. I am very happy to see Messi at PSG, a club that occupies an important place in my heart."

His remarks have not gone down well with the management at the Nou Camp, with some officials irked by the fact that the legendary playmaker was happy to see the Argentinian leave the club during their trying times.

Ronaldinho for his part was a the talisman for Barcelona between 2003 to 2007, making 207 appearances for them, scoring 94 goals and helping the club win the 2004 and 2005 LaLiga title and the 2006 Champions League honour.
