Mourinho Snubs Cristiano Ronaldo Picks Messi In His Top Three Players In History by Balloblog(m): 3:08pm On Feb 23
José Mourinho has subbed Cristiano Ronaldo and choose Messi above him in his opinion about best players in the history of football.

José Mourinho said: "For me the top three players in history are Messi, Pelé and Maradona."

Despite being from the same country with Cristiano Ronaldo and having been his manager at Real Madrid, Mourinho still believes that Ronaldo is not worth to be among his best three in the world of football.

Mourinho, known for his controversial attitude and boastful comments, has criticised Ronaldo at different in his career. He said this about Ronaldo when he was the manager at Real Madrid: "I had only one problem with him, very simple, very basic, which was when a coach criticises a player from a tactical viewpoint trying to improve what, in my view, could have been improved.

"At that moment, he didn't take it very well because maybe he thinks he knows everything and the coach cannot help him develop further."

Mourinho has at a time praised Ronaldo, where he said: "I remember the good and the not so good. I remember he is a goal machine, he.......

they keep comparing messi with greats like pele n maradona since leo got to d top n still compare cr7 with messi which means cr7 is trying so hard to surpass messi..
I still insist dt not winning d world cup is d only dirt on messi legacy bt even if he wins It, critics would find another reason to hate bcox they gat keep talking..
reminder- mou is a Portuguese like cr7 and they both worked together for years during his peak in madrid n knows cr7 more than his biased fans,
also YOU CAN NEVER HEAR ANY COACH dt av worked with messi n experienced his genius n magic each day, coming to place cr7 before messi....its simple logic

Mourinho has said nothing but the truth, despite being a Portuguese. I also call them the Trinity GOAT.

Majority of the people who truly understand football always put Messi at the pinnacle of the sport along with Pele or Maradona. The ultimate choice is a matter of personal preference.

Ask any football pundit, ex-footballers, current footballers, coach, journalist, people with real footballing brain, majority will always tell you Messi is the greatest footballer of his generation. Plenty receipts abound for public space. Instagram fans opinion will always be relegated to the bottom cos they don't matter in the grand scheme of things.

Those in football knows messi is better because is style is unique they can never be another messi they can always be another cristano. Mbape and hanland can break cristano record if they keep scoring 38 goals per season till they turn 36. But they can't beat 4 players or score 91 goals in a year like messi. Ko possible rara

I cannot tell as they are millions of coaches and players in the world. And I believe they have not all voted for either players but the glaring fact is that the world recognized cr7 as the goat that's why he is the most popular player on this planet.

you just contradicted yourself. You just said " I cannot tell as they are millions of coaches and players in the world" you also went further to say, they have not all voted for either player which is obviously true. There's no glaring fact anywhere except your judgement is drawn from social media and I still want you to understand that not all his followers on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter are his fans just like myself.

Bro, deep down u knw say Messi is the real mvp.

Wen was d last tym Ronaldo dribbled a player self? he only does step over nd passes to a team mate at d end. grin

I'm a united fan buh dat won't stop me frm speaking d truth wen i see one. Ronaldo was a beast at Man u, buh he became a goal scorer like Lewandoski after he arrived at madrid. He lost his dribbling ability because he bcame obsessed wit goals.

Messi still dribbles, gives all kind of passes in football; diagonal,projectile,long,short,through passes etc wit ease, he playmakes, he covers more pitch parameters compared to Ronaldo in every game despite his age. Has more man of d match awad compared to Ronaldo even this season his bagged more man of d match award.Bro Messi is football.

Despite Barca's poor form dis season, Messi still tops d scorers chat wit 18goals...

Everyone always expect a magic wen Messi is wit d ball; for a second everywhere becoms quite like a graveyard cos they re expecting a genuis act.

Wen was d last tym Ronaldo scored a freekick? against spain at d world cup i guess; wow,long tym ago.

I like Ronaldo, buh Messi nor b him mate abeg.

Respect bro. Respect.

Shout out to Ronaldo too, not easy banging goals at age 36 abi 37 self.

you're wrong...Ronaldo scores free kick last season for juve and this season with Portugal vs Sweden.he was among the top3 successful dribble in seria A and the most at juve last season....don't forget it has not been long messi broke his free kick drought and ronaldo still score more Fk than him.
If your messi is that good you won't be losing to validate hiim
Finally I leave u. with this if u are to ppick BTW lewa , IBRA and neymar as a coach, who will that be.

Bro dis ur top3 successful dribble in serie A last season i nor blif dat one, u jux made dat one up nor lie. grin

Bro Ronaldo has scored jux one freekick goal more dan Messi
Ronaldo gat 56 while Messi gat 55. Remember Ronaldo started playing football 2yrs b4 Messi.

For ur last paragraph/ question: I will choose Neymar cos he can single handedly win me games. Lewandoski is gud buh can he flourish witout a dreadful team like bayern? cos his jux a goal scorer." an Halland can do his work for me". Buh a Neymar can pick d ball frm d oppositions box dribble nd score thereby saving d day" dats why i like Messi nd Ronaldinho". Lewa can't do dat,he nids a gud mildfielder to feed him b4 he scores. Ibra is old can't comment abt him.

U can only compare a Ronaldo of Man u days to Messi not a Ronaldo of now dat only depends on scoring.

Bro, if u played football while growing up or still plays, u will knw Messi is xtra ordinary. If u tink wat Messi does is overrated visit a pitch on a Saturday mornin or evenin nd try it out.
Tink its easy having 3 to 4 players marking u nd still dribbling dem effortlessly week in week out? nd still playmakes? giving key passes wit ease? Dat dude plays like a ghost.

Lemme end my case here cos Messi nor even knw me.grin
