The legendary Roberto Carlos is usually very blunt when sharing his opinions on football. This is why, when the historic Rio Ferdinand asked him for his TOP 3 with the best players in history, he had no trouble quoting his chosen ones.
And although he has repeatedly confirmed his admiration for Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in recent years, the Brazilian world champion did not consider them on this occasion.
In his historic ranking, the former Real Madrid winger has decided to include a footballer he grew up admiring and the two greatest exponents of his generation.
He ended up with the goalscoring ability of Ronaldo Nazário, the class of Zinedine Zidane and the genius of Diego Armando Maradona.
Of course, he made it clear that he is one of those who believe The Phenomenon is The GOAT. “The 3 best footballers of all time? Ronaldo, Phenomenon. Diego Armando Maradona and Zinedine Zidane”was the first thing Roberto responded to, in statements (2019) collected on the Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE YouTube channel.
And then he explained that he places R9 as the best footballer that ever existed: “Ronaldo is a top footballer. Very fast, intelligent… an example for all young footballers. For me, it’s number 1.”
Emerick Aubameyang, Alexis Sánchez, Roberto Carlos and the list could go on. It’s impressive how many football personalities have identified Ronaldo Nazário as the best of them all.
Although injuries have prevented him from being as consistent as other legends, his legacy will forever live on in the history of the game.
