- Cristiano Ronaldo and Ronaldo Delima are among the best footballers
- Mikael Silvestre says that Cristiano is no match for Ronaldo Delima
- Silvestre and Ronaldo were at United together for five years
Former France international Mikael Silvestre has stated that Cristiano Ronaldo cannot be compared with Ronaldo Delima because the Brazilian had great skills when he was playing.
Having played with these two players at Manchester United and Inter Milan respectively, Mikael Silvestre explained that Cristiano Ronaldo is no match with the two-time World Cup winner.
Before making a move to Manchester United where he played alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Silverstre and Ronaldo Delima played together at Inter Milan.
According to the report on UK Mirror, Silverstre claimed that Ronaldo Delima's speed cannot be compared with any other player.
"He was unstoppable. You called him ‘El Fenomeno’ then. I played against Messi and I played with Cristiano at Manchester United, but Ronaldo is something else in terms of speed.".
After winning the 1998 World Cup with France which they hosted, Mikael Silverstre's performances then for his country helped him to make the move to Inter Milan.
But he was only able to share the dressing room with Ronaldo Delima at Inter Milan for just one season before he moved to Manchester United where he played at Old Trafford with Cristiano.
“Everything is top level with Ronaldo Cristiano, maybe you can guess that he has three or four tricks he would use most of the time, but Ronnie, it was always something different.
“He was inventing things on the spot, so you can’t guide him left or right because he’s going to get out of these situations, no matter what,''. he explained according to the report on Mirror UK.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho snubbed the duo of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo thereby picking Brazilian football legend Ronaldo Delima as the world's best player.
The duo of Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are widely considered as the best players in the world at least for the past 15 years considering what they have achieved in their careers.
But Jose Mourinho who is also one of the best managers in the world felt Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are not the best footballers in the world naming Delima Nasaro ahead of them.
Before Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi began to shine, Ronaldo Delima has been at the top of his career winning World Cup title twice.
