Ronaldo Luiz Nazario de Lima, or better known by the name of Ronaldo, revealed a list of the five best players in the world today. Interestingly, there is no Cristiano Ronaldo name on the list.
It must be admitted that Ronaldo is one of the best players in football history. Although his career journey was not smooth because he was often plagued by injuries, the former Inter Milan player has already carved his own name in the Football history board.
In addition to the matter of his playing style that impressed many people, Ronaldo also won many achievements, including 2 World Cup Trophies with Brazil and 3 individual Ballon d’Or achievements. Many people consider him the best player in history, including Jose Mourinho.
When asked about who are the best players in the world today, Ronaldo chose five names. In the first place is Lionel Messi, who according to him is a rare special player. Then there are several other players like Neymar and Mbappe.
There is no name Cristiano Ronaldo on the list, even though the Portuguese mega star has won 5 Ballon d’Or and is still productive at the age of 35 with Juventus.
“Messi, of course, he is number one, he is a talent which means it takes 20 or 30 years to see something similar to him. I also like Salah, Hazard, Neymar, I like seeing him play, and of course Mbappe,” Ronaldo told the US.
Among the five players, Kylian Mbappe is considered as a player who has similarities with him. Speaking of that opinion, Ronaldo claimed he could not accept the comparison, especially with players of different eras.
“Many people say that he looks like me. He is very fast, his finish is good, his moves are great, his shots are very good with both legs, he has amazing footsteps,”
“We have similar attributes, but I have never liked comparisons, especially between players from different generations, because the situation is different,” he said.
The Ronaldo himself throughout his career has defended several European giants ranging from Barcelona, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
