Ronaldinho Names Three Players Who Could Be Seen As Better Players Than Lionel Messi

However, the World Cup winner insisted that he would find it "difficult to say [Messi] is the best of all time."

Ronaldinho told Spanish newspaper Marca: "I'm glad Messi won the Ballon d'Or. We were also friends during our time at Barcelona.

"But I don't like to compare, and I find it difficult to say he is the best of all time."
