Paulinho: Ronaldo Taught Me A Lot In Football

Paulinho made a N16 billion move from Guangzhou Evergrande to Barcelona last summer and despite low expectations, the Brazilian powerhouse is able to impress.
The midfielder is inspired by another Brazilian and former teammate: Ronaldo Nazario.

Paulinho says at Barcelona's official website that he had the honour to play alongside the Brazilian legend.
Paulinho: "My first steps in football came thanks to my big brother who taught me the game. At Corinthians, I had the pleasure to play with Ronaldo who also taught me a lot. 
One would have expected to midfielder's European career was over after he left Tottenham for China, but Paulinho was able to bounce back.
"A lot of people felt it was difficult for me to come to Barca because I was playing in China. Nevertheless, I have achieved my dream and I am enjoying each day.

"Since the very first day I have been welcomed in the best way possible. There is a great, happy family atmosphere here. I have settled in well thanks to the great reception I have had."
