Former FC Barcelona superstar Deco, who starred alongside Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ronaldinho during his playing career, has revealed who he considers to be the best footballer he has played with.
The ex-Portuguese international enjoyed a fantastic career at the highest level, winning 20 club trophies while playing for clubs such as FC Porto, Barca, Chelsea and Fluminense.
Asked who his greatest ever teammate was in a recent interview, Deco had a special mention for both Messi and Ronaldo, but named Ronaldinho as his pick.
"From the outset, it is clear that Leo and Cristiano are the greatest," he told AS.
"Especially because no one thought they could take so many years to this level, but the one that impressed me most, despite not being so decisive, was Ronnie (Ronaldinho).
"For me, he will always be the best."
Deco lined up alongside Ronaldinho for Barca, where they played together for four years.
