Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has named Brazil legend Ronaldo as ‘the best player in history’. Ibrahimovic expressed his admiration towards the World Cup winner ahead of Milan’s Europa League clash with Red Star Belgrade on Thursday night, while putting him ahead of modern-day greats such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the all-time list of top players. The 39-year-old thinks Ronaldo Nazario, who inspired Brazil to World Cup glory in 2002, transcended the game with his unique talents and still stands out as the unrivalled master of the footballing craft to this day. What was said? Zlatan told Discovery Plus: “I don’t need to describe Ronaldo, ‘The Phenomenon’. “I always say you have the players that play the game, and the players that are the game. For me, Ronaldo is the game. When you watch him play, everyone wanted to play like him and become like him. “The way he was moving, the way he did his stepovers, the way he did ‘the snake’. The way he was moving, for me he’s the greatest player through history, no doubt.” Ronaldo’s extraordinary career Ronaldo began his professional career in his homeland with Cruzeiro in 1993, and went on to play for PSV, Barcelona, Inter, Real Madrid, Milan and Corinthians. The Brazilian forward scored 296 goals in 452 matches in total, while also winning three FIFA World Player of the Year awards and two Ballons d’Or – the first of which saw him enter the record books as the youngest ever winner of the prize at 21. Ronaldo was almost unstoppable during his spells at Barca and Inter, and he helped Brazil reach the World Cup final in 1998 before scoring eight goals in the 2002 World Cup to fire the Selecao to their fifth title. Ronaldo then joined Real Madrid at the height of the club’s ‘Galactico’ era, and ended up staying at Santiago Bernabeu for five years – the longest spell at one club in his entire career – securing one La Liga crown along the way.

Just how influential is Cristiano Ronaldo? Well, let me give you an idea. 2009 saw a lot of major world events take place. The United States’ first ever African-American President took the oath of office. The Great Recession was just making its devastating presence felt. The swine flu gained the status of a global pandemic. Manmohan Singh was re-elected as Prime Minister of India. James Cameron’s Avatar was released to critical acclaim. Michael Jackson was found dead a month before his 51st birthday at his LA mansion and Apple had just released another revolutionary new phone. However, the biggest, by far the biggest, waves were made by a 24-year-old youngster who, after winning all there was to win at Manchester United – this includes 3 Premier League titles, 1 FA Cup, 2 League Cups, 1 Champions League, and the first of 5 Ballon d’Or titles – transferred to Spanish club Real Madrid for a world record fee of £80 million. That youngster, of course, is none other than Cristiano Ronaldo. In hindsight, that £80 million proved to be a bargain, considering Cristiano Ronaldo won 2 La Liga titles, an astonishing four Champions League titles, 2 Spanish Super Cups and three FIFA Club World Cups. He also amassed a plethora of individual awards and personal records, which are just too many to list out.
However, despite Ronaldo’s skills as one of the most dependable match winners ever, football – at the end of the day – is a collective sport, and to thrive a club doesn’t just need one player but an entire 11-person team. Part of the reason why Cristiano Ronaldo thrived at Los Blancos was due to him being supported by some excellent teammates. With that in mind, let’s take a look at: 5 of Cristiano Ronaldo’s best teammates at Real Madrid: #5 Xabi Alonso Alonso AlonsoAlonso’s brillance helped Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid tick Undoubtedly one of the most gifted but underrated midfielders of his generation, Alonso will rightly go down as one of Spain’s and Real Madrid’s greatest ever pass masters. While Cristiano Ronaldo might not have linked with Alonso for many goals, the Spaniard was instrumental in keeping things ticking at the center of the park, which enabled the magic to happen up front. Such was his influence in Los Blancos’ midfield that Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson deployed Danny Welbeck in a spoiler role to keep the Spaniard in check during the Champions League Round of 16 match back in 2013. Welbeck performed his role brilliantly, but a red card for Nani saw him shift positions, freeing up the Spaniard, who then went on to dictate play and help Real Madrid win the match. Alonso and Cristiano Ronaldo won 5 trophies at Real Madrid in the form of 1 La Liga, 1 Champions League and 2 Copa del Reys and 1 Spanish Super Cup. Cristiano Ronaldo truly benefitted from this dynamic midfield maestro. Personalized Here lives an old bear and his honey doormat
