Inter Milan team manager Ivan Cordoba says former Brazil international Ronaldo is the best footballer that he played with.
Ronaldo won 98 caps for Brazil and played alongside defender Cordoba for Inter.
Explosive centre-forward Ronaldo also lined up for PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, Real Madrid and AC Milan during his glittering career, which he began at Cruzeiro and finished with Corinthians.
“I will always say that the greatest player I ever had for a team-mate was Ronaldo,” Cordoba told Inter TV.
“I played with many, many great players but he will always stand out to me.
“Even when considering my opponents, I would continue to name him, since we faced each other at international level.”
Ex-Colombia international Cordoba was then asked to compare Ronaldo with Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi, but said it is impossible to assess players from different eras.
“Was he better than Messi? They’re all different. I don’t think it’s possible to compare Maradona, Messi and Ronaldo because they’re all from different eras.”
Cordoba retired from professional football at the end of last season.
