The legendary Ronaldinho of Brazil and Barcelona has offered his opinion on Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain being regarded as the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT).
Messi, a former teammate at Barcelona, was not mentioned by Ronaldinho as the greatest player in football history.
Messi's career is slowly coming to an end at the age of 35.
The Argentine captain is still thought to be among the best players in the world right now, though.
Messi won 35 trophies during his 21-year stint with Barcelona and has bagged two titles with PSG so far.
While the FIFA World Cup has evaded Messi, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner finally realized his desire to win a trophy with Argentina last year as he led La Albiceleste to Copa America glory in July 2021.
However, Ronaldinho named football icons Pele and Diego Maradona and insisted that there are several players who were the best in their own generations, adding that it is difficult to pick only Messi.
Ronaldinho told Eleven Sports: “It is difficult to say [only Messi], there are so many players."
“I don’t like to compare. You had Pele, Maradona, there were so many. Every one of them was the best in their own time. "
