Jose Mourinho doesn’t trust Cristiano Ronaldo nor Lionel Messi are the best footballers to ever play the excellent game.
Rather, the current Tottenham director figures Cristiano’s namesake, the Brazilian symbol, shrouds the two his countryman and the Argentine legend.
Before Ronaldo and Messi graced the globe with their footballing ability, Ronaldo – the man with R9 on his boots – wore the pants.
The Brazilian won the World Cup twice, and gathered two Ballon d’Or trophies during a sparkling profession playing for both Real Madrid and Barcelona, however the Champions League sidestepped him.
Tragically for Ronaldo, genuine knee wounds hampered what could have been a much increasingly effective vocation and he didn’t appreciate very as long out on the field as Messi or his namesake.
All things considered, Mourinho got a short glance at the Brazilian in person when he worked under amazing supervisor Bobby Robson as a mediator at Barcelona, and it appears the then adolescent left a genuine impact on the Portuguese.
Mourinho told LiveScore: “Ronaldo, El Fenomeno. Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi have had longer vocations, they have stayed at the top each day for a long time.
“Be that as it may, in the event that we are speaking carefully about ability and expertise, no one outperforms Ronaldo.
“At the point when he was at Barcelona with Bobby Robson, I understood that he was the best player I’d at any point seen take to the field.
“Wounds murdered a profession that could have been considerably progressively mind boggling, yet the ability that that 19-year-old kid had was something extraordinary.”
