Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have missed out on top spot in Jose Mourinho’s greatest of all time list, with former Brazil striker Ronaldo considered to be the best the Portuguese has ever seen.

The ex- Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter boss has worked with some of the world’s top talent in his time.

It is, however, a player that he saw at close quarters early on his career that made the biggest impression.

“Ronaldo, El Fenomeno, Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi have had longer careers, they have remained at the top every day for 15 years,” Mourinho told LiveScore.

“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 that 19-year-old boy had was something incredible.

“In 1997, Barcelona played against PSG in Rotterdam and Ronaldo’s goal, 1-0. Awesome.”

Ronaldo netted 47 times in just 49 appearances for Barcelona that season.

That would remain the most prolific campaign of his iconic career by the time the day came to hang up his boots in 2011. (BBC)
