Xavier Sala-I-Martin, Barcelona treasurer between 2006 and 2010, revealed the frustrations they had with the skilled midfielder Ronaldinho in the later years of his time at the club. The club tolerated Ronaldinho’s partying due to his exceptional talent, but their patience wore thin when they allegedly saw him influencing the younger Messi into a similar lifestyle. According to Sala-I-Martin, this culture in the dressing room eventually led to the departure of coach Rijkaard.
Sala-I-Martin made a bold claim, stating that Ronaldinho’s partying and influence on Messi created numerous problems for the club during that time. The club officials were concerned about how to address and stop the behavior, leading to discussions about the need for strong leadership.
