Ronaldo was excluded from the top five highly rated footballers in history.
Newsonline reports that former Real Madrid and Italy striker, Antonio Cassano, has excluded Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo from his top five football players in history.
According to Cassano, Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi; late Argentine legend, Diego Maradona; Dutch legend, Johan Cruyff; and Brazil legends, Pele and Ronaldo Nazario are the greatest players of all-time ahead of Ronaldo.
Speaking on Christian Vieiri’s Twitch channel, Bobo TV, via AS, Cassano confidently declared: “Enough theatre.
“Is Cristiano Ronaldo the best in the history of football?
“He is not even in the top five.”
He added, “For me, [Lionel] Messi, Pele, [Diego] Maradona, [Johan] Cruyff and Ronaldo [Nazario] are on another level.”
Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’ Or five times in the past.
Only Messi has won more Ballon d’Or than Ronaldo.
