Brazilian star Ronaldinho was once considered the best player on the planet and he has now been comparing those who are currently vying to be the best. Ronaldinho claims that, while Cristiano Ronaldo is a great player, Lionel Messi is the best but Neymar will one day take his crown.
Ronaldinho told ESPN, “Cristiano Ronaldo is making history for a few years now, but I still think that it's Lionel Messi who is the current best football player in the World. As for Neymar, I'm pretty sure his day will come soon and he'll top everyone else in the game when he reaches his peak.”
He added, “Messi is the best in the world right now. He has been playing at a level we've never seen anyone else playing before. I'm always proud of speaking about Leo, because I was right there with him, when he started his professional senior career in Barcelona. He's now the best football player in the World and that just makes me tremendously happy.”
Ronaldinho continued, “I still remember the game where Leo Messi scored his first senior goal. It was a very special moment and I still recall having assisted him for that goal. It was an honour to live and share that moment with him. Messi knows I'll always hold a place for him in my heart.”
Ronaldinho is currently playing his football in his native Brazil with Atletico Mineiro and the 32 year old is expected to end his career in Brazil.
