Messi ‘The Best In His Time’ Says Ronaldinho
Brazil and Barcelona legend Ronaldinho says his former teammate Lionel Messi is the best footballer of his generation- but he stopped short of calling him the best of all time.
Messi scooped up his sixth Ballon D’Or award this year after another sparkling year, earning the praise of his former teammate and Ballon D’Or winner Ronaldinho.
However, the Brazilian did not want to commit on whether Messi is the best footballer of all time. “I'm glad for Messi because he's a friend, aside from the fact he's been a leader of Barcelona.
"I don't like comparisons because it's hard to identify who is the best in history. There's Diego Maradona, Pele, Ronaldo. I can't say that Messi is the best ever, but he is the best in his time."
