Before there was the disciplined skill of Pep Guardiola's Barcelona there was the outlandishly talented but liable to do anything version with Frank Rijkaard at the helm. The Dutchman finally brought the Champions League title to Camp Nou but the ill-discipline which marked his tenure eventually saw him replaced by a young pretender.
When Guardiola took over, his first inkling was to ship put the old blood and bring in a team that were prepared to play football the way he wanted. First out was the old king of Catalunya, Ronaldinho. He had to wait another year but, in 2009, Samuel Eto'o followed the Brazilian out the door.
They may have been unwanted by Guardiola in 2008 but, seven years later, they're set to team up once again. It's not the glitzy surroundings of Barcelona but we'd suggest that Ronaldinho and Eto'o can still have some fun in the Turkish city of Antalya.
Eto'o joined newly promoted side Antalyaspor last week and now the club's President, Gultekin Gencer, has confirmed that a deal is in place for the Brazilian legend.
We reached an agreement with Ronaldinho. I think within two days it'll be made official. Besides Eto'o and Ronaldinho, we will make another big-name signing.
When it's done, we'll set the world on fire.
Ronaldinho recently cut short his spell with Mexican side Querétaro, while Eto'o lasted about as long at Sampdoria as he did at Everton. The Antalyaspor president might be optimistic but as fun as it might be to see, we can't see this one ending well.
