Former Paris Saint-Germain star, Martin Cardetti has made a huge claim, revealing that he would choose his former team-mate, Ronaldinho over Barcelona talisman, Lionel Messi for his team if he was a coach.
Cardetti played alongside Ronaldinho for one season at Paris, post which the Brazilian moved to Barcelona where he went on to achieve greatness and become the best player in the world, winning the 2005 Ballon d’Or award.
While many consider Messi as the greatest player in the history of the sport, Cardetti has revealed that he would always choose Ronaldinho over the others as he was “touched by God”.
“I shared a year with Ronaldinho and he is a different player, he’s touched by God.
He always had fun; with the ball he was always doing things and he practiced a lot so that he could replicate those things in matches,” he said as per Goal.
You see him in training, in matches and every move he makes is different from everyone. Players like him appear very rarely and they are remembered in football history.
I’m proud to have been a teammate of that kind of player.”
While Ronaldinho failed to match the heights he reached at Barcelona, he did have some decent spells with Milan, Flamengo and Atletico Mineiro later on his career before eventually hanging up his boots in 2018.
