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

Brazil legend Ronaldinho refused to name Lionel Messi the 'GOAT of football' as he picked three players who could all lay claim to that status.

Ronaldinho, who played alongside Messi at Barcelona, congratulated the Argentine superstar on winning France Football's coveted prize for an unprecedented sixth time.

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."
