Video: ‘We Had Missed Something’ – Former PSG Goalkeeper States They Wasted Ronaldinho’s Two Seasons in the French Capital

Ronaldinho spent two seasons with Paris Saint-Germain from 2001 to 2003 before moving to FC Barcelona. Despite having the talented Brazil international, the capital club didn’t win a trophy during his two seasons in the French capital. 

In a live stream on Twitter, former PSG goalkeeper Jérôme Alonzo discussed Ronaldinho’s time in Paris. The 48-year-old touched on the feeling he had when his teammate departed from Les Parisiens. 

Alonzo mentioned how despite having a talented squad during Ronaldinho’s two years with PSG, it felt like wasted years because they have nothing to show for Ronaldinho’s time.

“I remember we hugged in the parking lot, and I wanted to complain, too. We said to ourselves that we had missed something; we felt it. Because we were very close, we loved each other a lot, really, and the last words I said to him was ‘damn, we didn’t win anything,” Alonzo said.

“I will remember all my life I left this restaurant, and the last sight I have of Ronnie is that he is sitting between two cars crying. I said to myself, we are all idiots, there were two years to win everything, and we won nothing, not even a cup final.”

The capital club had quality players alongside Ronaldinho in Jay-Jay Okacho, Nicolas Anelka, Mauricio Pochettino, Gabriel Heinze, and others. Nonetheless, the short window this time had to win trophies didn’t come to fruition.
