Ex Ghanaian captain Asamoah Gyan has named former Brazil striker Ronaldo as the greatest player of all time, ahead of Lionel Messi of Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus.
Gyan, who played against Ronaldo in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, in a game which ended 3-0 in favour of Brazil, said he has never seen any player like the former Real Madrid striker.
According to the former Sunderland striker, he learnt a lot of skills from Ronaldo, including finishing and dribbling.
“Ronaldo, the Brazilian, any time any day. For me, I have not seen any player like him. Although there have been a lot of players,” Gyan told Pulse Ghana.
“I don’t think I have seen any player like him because a striker who can do anything at any time, the strength, the speed, the dribbling abilities, the finishing, skills. It was amazing.
“When I was in Senior Secondary School, I learned a skill from him that I was using it to do my stuff even in the Ghana Premier League that defenders couldn’t catch me.
“I learned a lot of things from Ronaldo, tricks from him. For me, I think he is my best player of all-time.”
