Legendary striker Ronaldo has issued a warning to Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho that Barcelona have always failed to treat their Brazilian players well.
Coutinho has been the subject of heavy interest from the La Liga leaders and they came close to landing the 25-year-old playmaker in the summer but Liverpool held firm to hang on to their star midfielder.
Liverpool rejected three bids with Barcelona seeing their final offer of £119million also turned down.

In an interview with Esporte Interativo, Ronaldo listed examples of Brazilians treated poorly at the Nou Camp and revealed he felt much more at home at their rivals Real Madrid.
‘I felt much more happy and more connected to Real Madrid, despite having lived a great year in Barcelona,’ the 41-year-old said.
‘In the end, my history with Barça was very bad, similar to the one Neymar had.
‘Barcelona has always had issues with Brazilian players: Neymar, Romario, Ronaldinho and me.
‘We were all treated badly by the club in the end, despite all our contributions and dedication.’
