It Was Harder To Be The Best In My Time - Ronaldo

Legendary Brazilian goalscorer Ronaldo Nazario feels that in his generation, it was way harder to win the Ballon d'Or than nowadays.
According to him, his generation knew more players that competed to be the best in the world. In Sport Bild, Ronaldo claims that in his time it was harder to become the world's best:
"In my generation, the competition was much bigger than it is now, without wanting to belittle Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"They will fight for the title of the best player in the world in the coming years, but in my time we had Zinedine Zidane, Rivaldo, Luis Figo, me, and then Ronaldinho.That was a generation in which being the best was much more difficult," the legendary number nine explained.
The Brazilian centre-forward sees similarities with his and Neymar's departure from Barcelona.
He added: "I do not know what went behind his transfer, maybe there was a problem with the presidency of Barcelona, like what happened with me. Neymar's departure from Barcelona has many parallels with what happened in 1997."
