United and Barcelona legends are about to offer fans a real spectacle on June 30, some huge names of both teams are going to put on their beloved jerseys again, and seizing the opportunity, former Red Devil Quinton Fortune ‘revealed’ what he feels cost Man United the golden opportunity to sign Ronaldinho back in 2003.
I think we got it wrong by bringing Ronaldinho in at the wrong time of year as it was raining that day he arrived at Manchester Airport
Fortune told Man United’s official website.
Maybe it was summer anyway but, if we’d have timed it with the right day, it could have been a different story
the South African said, really believing that the weather in Manchester played a major role in Ronaldinho’s decision to join Barcelona instead, a city with infinitely more pleasant weather conditions than the north of England, year-round.
I was very fortunate to play for South Africa against him in the Olympics in front of 72,000 fans but, when he was at Barcelona, he was a different Ronaldinho so I’m hoping we get a glimpse of that and I hope I won’t have to mark him!
