The question of who is the greatest footballer in history often comes up, and for many, the answer is Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. However, Jose Mourinho disagrees with that view.
LiveScore asked the Roma coach who was the best player of all time and the Portuguese manager revealed it was Ronaldo Nazario, with whom he worked at Barcelona:
“Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi have had longer careers, they’ve been playing at the top every day for the past 15 years. However, if we talk seriously about talent and skill, no one can beat Ronaldo de Lima.”
“When he was at Barcelona with Bobby Robson, I realized he was the best player I’ve ever seen on the pitch. Injuries killed a career that should have been more extraordinary than that, but the talent he has. It’s unbelievable what a 19-year-old boy has.”
Ronaldo has scored 352 goals in 518 appearances in all competitions during his club career. Without the injury, the performance of the former Brazilian player could have been even better.
