Ronaldinho admits he would like to have Frank Lampard as a Barcelona team-mate but boss Frank Rijkaard does not expect it to happen.

The Chelsea midfielder has been often linked with the Catalans but has two years remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge, and Rijkaard stressed Barcelona are not planning to move for the 29-year-old.

Ronaldinho, in Scotland for friendlies against Dundee United and Hearts, nevertheless believes Lampard is of the standard required at the Catalan club, saying: "He´s a great player and he has shown that at Chelsea. Obviously I would like to have him at Barcelona, the same way that I would like any great player there."
