Next, he plans to ask the likes of Gianluigi Buffon, Wesley Sneijder and Ivan Zamorano.Ronaldinho, 37, was thrilled at the opportunity to be part of the project, revealing: "My good friend Fabio decided to launch a range named after athletes he admires.

"It's great to be part of a project as nice as this, without even taking into account the inimitable quality of the primitive wine, which is among the best in the world.

"Without doubt, this is a company which will satisfy even the biggest wine connoisseurs." Cordella admitted he was delighted at teaming up with Ronaldinho, who he described as "one of the ten greatest footballers of all time." Owning your own wine cellar is the all the rage in the football world these days.

Grace Chingoma Senior Sports Reporter— RONALDINHO, Rivaldo, Edmilson, Mendieta, Edgar Davids and Patrick Kluivert are coming to town and, if you are a football fan, it doesn’t get any bigger than that.

Brace yourselves for a date of a lifetime and it’s happening in November this year.

Davids, one of the greatest midfielders of all-time who featured for Barcelona, Juventus, Inter Milan, Tottenham and Ajax Amsterdam, believes the match will inspire Zimbabwe’s football generation.“We are happy to be here and we hope we can contribute to the development of football in this country and also be an inspiration to the youths of Zimbabwe,” he said.

Kluivert had kind words for Mzembi, who has been on a massive mission to paint the right image of this country around the world.“Continue with your job to promote the country, we heard about it,” he said.

The Barcelona legends side — featuring some of the greatest football stars to have graced the game — is expected in Zimbabwe in November for a high-profile match.

The tour of the Barca legends was revealed yesterday when the skipper of that collection of players, Dutch forward Patrick Kluivert, led a delegation that met Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa in the capital.

And yesterday the delegation made headway when they briefed Mnangagwa before they went into a final meeting with Hlongwane to work out on the finer details of the deal, which will see the country witness live some of the world’s greatest players such as Rivaldo and Ronaldinho, who once donned that famous Barcelona shirt.

And to set the tone for the upcoming match, the legends yesterday presented personalised Barcelona shirts, which were signed by all the club’s players to President Mugabe.

And I think, also regarding the situation of Zimbabwe in Europe, I think personally, and what I hear in the surroundings, Zimbabwe is a great country, I think that has been ruled very good, but it has a bad (image) in Europe.“Regarding this match, if Barcelona Legends can play the Warriors or legends of Zimbabwe, it will give Zimbabwe a very good day and I think it is essential to have the game played in one of the most beautiful stadium.“We visited the stadium this morning (National Sports Stadium) and if we can bring 60 000 people into the stadium with the best coverage that we can have for the game, I think that is very essential for Zimbabwe,” said Kluivert.
