Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi may consistently be at the top level for the past 15 years, but they are not the best players of all time versions of Jose Mourinho.
For at least the past decade, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have competed with each other to be the best. Other players seemed unable to match the second level of the figure.
Messi is known as a player who has extraordinary talent that is not owned by other players, while Cristiano Ronaldo is a typical hard worker and very disciplined. As a result, they both scored many goals and won many championship trophies.
So it’s normal when each of them has won more than 4 Ballon d’Or trophies. Messi is currently superior with 6 trophies, while Ronaldo won 5 similar trophies. Mourinho also cannot deny that the two players are the best for the past 15 years.
But, for him the best player of all time is Ronaldo Luiz Nazario de Lima, the Brazilian legend.
“Ronaldo, El Fenomeno. Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi have longer careers. They remain on top every day for 15 years,”
“However, if we talk about talent and skills, nothing exceeds Ronaldo. “When he was in Barcelona with Bobby Robson, I realized that he was the best player I’ve ever seen who took to the field,” Mourinho told LiveScore, via Mirror.
It is undeniable, Ronaldo is a great player in his era. He won two World Cup trophies with Brazil. Having extraordinary technique when dribbling, his greatness was recognized by football legends.
Unfortunately, a severe injury then forced Ronaldo’s career not to last long. In fact, he is the best talent Mourinho has ever witnessed directly.
“An injury killed a career that could be even more extraordinary. But the talent possessed by the 19-year-old boy is something extraordinary, “said Mourinho.
Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho had indeed been in the same team, Barcelona, in 1996 ago.
