Former Chelsea and Barcelona forward Eidur Gudjohnsen says he is willing to play for Brazilian side Chapecoense after last month's plane crash, he says.

Nineteen players from the club were among the 71 people killed when the Avro RJ85 aircraft crashed in Cerro Gordo en route to Medellín, Colombia.

Gudjohnsen, who won the Premier League in his 186 appearances for Chelsea, offered his services to Chapecoense through his Twitter account.

"Out of respect i would play for @ChapecoenseReal if they have a place for me! If not just to play with @10Ronaldinho again #ForcaChape," the Icelandic forward wrote on Twitter.

Reports suggest that Brazilian legend Ronaldinho is considering coming out of retirement to play for the club.

The 36-year-old, who featured for Paris Saint Germain, Barcelona and AC Milan, retired last year after seven games for Fluminense in Brazil.
