Mourinho names World's Best Footballer Ever, not Messi or Ronaldo

By Oladele Emmanuel - Tottenham Boss, Jose Mourinho has named the best player to have ever played football, many would have expected the manager to name either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, but Mourinho is having a different perspective.

The former Chelsea manager believes that Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima also addressed as "El Fenomeno" was the best player he has ever seen playing football.

Ronaldo Nazario played for Barcelona and Real Madrid, when Ronaldo was in Barcelona, Jose Mourinho was also working as interpreter to then Catalan Boss Bobby Robson, and must have been able to know much about the Brazilian then. Ronaldo career was cut off early with injuries and never won the UEFA Champions League but won two World Cup for Brazil and Two Ballon d'Or Trophies.

The belief of many has being Messi and Ronaldo when it comes to the all time World Best Player, but not so with Jose Mourinho.

"Ronaldo, El Fenomeno. Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi have had longer Careers, they have remained at the top everyday for 15 years.

"However, if we are talking strictly about talent and skill, nobody surpasses Ronaldo (Nazario). When he was at Barcelona with Bobby Robson, I realised that he was the best player I'd ever seen take to the field.

"Injuries killed a career that could have been even more incredible but the talent that the 19-year-old had was something incredible," Mourinho told Livescore.

Do you agree with Jose Mourinho?
