Barcelona star player, Lionel Messi has named Ronaldo Nazario as the best striker he’s ever seen in history.
Ronaldo Nazario who played in Spain and Italy was the best striker of his time and won the 2002 World Cup in Korea-Japan.
When Messi was asked to name the best striker he has ever seen, he snubbed his closest-rival Ronaldo and Barcelona teammate Luiz Suarez.
“Ronaldo [Nazario] was a phenomenon, Of all the strikers I ever saw, he was the best,” Messi told TyC Sports.
“He was impressive,” he added.
Speaking on his best strike partner for Barcelona, Messi said: “Ronaldinho helped me a lot. I came into the dressing room at 16-17 years of age, seeing all those footballing giants made it tough.
“But he mentored me and made me feel comfortable, and I loosened up. Afterwards, on the pitch, I always looked for him but we didn’t have many years to enjoy together. Besides, we didn’t play as much at that time. I would have liked to play more with Ronaldinho.
“I have played five years with Luis Suárez. Playing every 3 days, you get used to each other and play by heart. We have children of the same age, spend our lives together every day, and the relationship is growing ever stronger.”
