Jérôme Leroy, shared the PSG changing room with the Brazilian star Ronaldinho between 2001 and 2003 and has spoken about the training regime of the ex-Barcelona forward.

No training required

Speaking with 'SFR Sport' the 41-year old Frenchman said: "Ronaldinho didn't train any day of the week but just turned up on Friday ready to play on the Saturday. That was Ronaldinho. I think he was trying to follow in the footsteps of Romario, who also went out every night, but he didn't have the same success".

The greats are a bit crazy

Some time ago, Leroy spoke with French magazine So Foot where he shared that the ex-Barça man would come in with sunglasses every morning. "He'd get changed and he'd go straight to the massage bed to sleep."

"Players with great talent like him are a bit crazy," he concluded.
