Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see which three players have the best freestyle skills, according to Carlos.

Carlos was part of the talented Brazil side that lifted the 2002 FIFA World Cup, and has played with the likes of Rivaldo, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo Nazario on international duty, while Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham, among other huge names, were his club teammates at Real.

He is now part of a judging panel that will chose the new world champion in the 2018 Red Bull Street Style finals, and revealed the three football stars he thinks has the best freestyle skills.

"In my opinion and from what I've seen, the three players with the best freestyle skills are (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic, Neymar and Robinho, but Beckham, Zidane and Ronaldo (Nazario) are also good," he said, as quoted by Marca.

"During a pre-season with Real Madrid in Austria, Zidane, Ronaldo and I practised doing tricks... and Ronaldo did things we couldn't do, freestyler stuff.

"Our training was open to the public and every movement was cheered by the people who were in the stands."
