Deco: Ronaldo Works Hard, Messi Born With Talent

Former FC Barcelona midfielder, Deco, says Cristiano Ronaldo has worked very hard but Lionel Messi was born with talent.
 
 
The 37-year-old, who is now retired, played alongside Messi during his time at the Camp Nou, while he was also teammates with Ronaldo in the Portuguese national side.
 
"[Leo and Cristiano] are different," he told FourFourTwo.
 
"Messi was born with talent. Cristiano also has talent but it's amazing how hard he works at it; how professional he is.
 
"It's difficult to pick one but maybe Leo is the best I've ever played with. Although, Ronaldinho did things that I've never seen anyone do."
 
The Portuguese midfielder also revealed he's played under many great coaches but Jose Mourinho brought something different.
 
"I think he's the best, though I've had many great coaches: Fernando Santos, Carlo Ancelotti, Felipe Scolari," Deco added.
 
"However, Mourinho brought something different. He brought ambition because in those days in Portugal it was difficult to imagine that one of our clubs could win the Champions League."
