Ronaldinho: Messi Is The Best Of All Time

Brazil legend Ronaldinho has insisted that FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is the best player in history, and also explained why he prefers the Argentine to Cristiano Ronaldo.

'Ronaldo Should've Copied Messi'

Messi spent three years learning from the legendary Ronaldinho at Barca, before the 2002 FIFA World Cup winner left the Catalan giants for AC Milan in 2008.

Since the Brazilian moved on, Messi has achieved incredible numbers and broken many records, which is why Ronaldinho believes he is the best player in the history of the sport.

"He's the best in history, no doubt," he said, according to Sport.

"Nobody has done what Messi's done. I hope he plays 20 more years. Those who love football would love to have him here for much longer.

"I think, when he leaves, nobody will be able to take the No. 10 of Leo."

Ronaldinho also said he prefers Messi to the man the Argentine is often compared to, Ronaldo.

"For me, it's not a question over who is more complete, it's a question of taste. I prefer Messi's style," he added.

"The other one is complete, he has it all. So does Messi, but it's a question of taste and I prefer Messi's style."

Messi has started this season in sublime fashion, scoring four times and creating a further three strikes in four matches for the Blaugrana so far.
