The 38-year-old believes Coutinho has what it takes to become one of the best of world football.
“There are a lot of players who I didn’t coincide with and I would have liked to play with them,” Ronaldinho told Sport.
“Coutinho is one of them. Iniesta and him are great players. They each have their own style, but I think the Coutinho will be one of the big names in world football.
“He already is, but I think that he will be more still.”
Ronaldinho spent five years at Barcelona after arriving in 2003, during which he won two La Liga titles, a Spanish Super Cup and the UEFA Champions League.
