Manchester United Boss Jose Mourinho Chooses Messi Over Ronaldo In Personal Top 3 Footballers Of All Time
Jose Mourinho worked with Ronaldo from 20010-2013 and has always been full of praises for his former player, so the exclusion comes as a surprise.
“For me the top three players in history are Messi, Pele and Maradona.” said the 53-year old Portugese.
Ronaldo played some of best football under his fellow country-men and also bagged the Ballon d’Or during Mourinho’s last season at the Spanish capital.
His statement has gone viral on the internet and his son Jose Mourinho Jr. re-tweeted it.
Mourinho also left out his favourite striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Ibra’s exclusion is a huge surprise, knowing how big a fan Jose is of the Swedish legend.
Ibra has recently rejoined Mourinho at Old Trafford on a free transfer.
“Zlatan needs no introduction. The statistics speak for themselves,” Mourinho had said following Ibrahimovic’s signing last month.
“Ibra is one of the best strikers in the world and a player who always gives 100 per cent.”
